Autism and GI disorders
Children with autism are no more likely to suffer gastrointestinal (GI) disorders than non-autistic children, American researchers have found (BMJ 2002; 325:419). They found the incidence of GI disorders was the same ? 9 per cent ? among autistic children and matched controls.
They also found no temporal association between measles, mumps and rubella vaccination and onset of GI symptoms in children with autism.
