Dr. Cannell, I'm Diego D'Urso, I'm writing from the south of Italy. My daughter – 2,5 years old- shows autism spectrum disorders. At the moment she's following a 15 h/week ABA therapy path (since past January and without any significant improvement). I know that the autism spectrum disorders have still not a wellknown antecedent and the Litterature analyzes AS disorders reffering them to few concurrent factors; so it seems to me that each individual is or can be different from the others; this pushes me to find an alternative and complementary treatment which can be particularly suited for my little child. I would like to ask which starting bloodtest parameters are to be analyzed (e.g. at least the vitamin D blood level) and which medical protocol is to be followed in order to assess and then implement the vitamin D supplementation. Sincerely your, Diego D'Urso

    Dear Diego,
    Sometimes Dr. Cannell is very busy so it may take him a little while to respond. So please be patient and keep checking back every few days, at least, for an answer.
    Does she take any Vitamin D and how much does she weigh?

    Forget the blood test for now. Start her on 3,000 IU/day of vitamin D3.

      Dott. Cannell,
      thank you for your attention.
      I ask for how many weeks the supplementation should be performed. Beste regards, dd

    The child should be on at least 3,000 IU/day indefinitely. In 3 months have a vitamin D blood level done. Make sure she is taking enough vitamin D to have her blood level around 80 ng/ml or 200 nm/L. I have a book coming out shortly that you should read:
