Recent research indicates that people with autism may have abnormalities in specific areas of inhibitory gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) neurotransmission. The effectiveness of GABA supplements has not yet been shown; research is still being done in this area. While some people take supplements as pills, others may mix them into meals like protein drinks. We can address the following queries in this session to help parents, caregivers, and physicians learn more about GABAergic disorders in ASD and potential treatment options.
1. How is GABA affected by autism?
2. What are the symptoms of GABA deficiency?
3. How can I increase GABA naturally?
4. Does vitamin D increase GABA?
5. Help to understand how to boost the effect of GABA supplements
6. Choosing evidence-based treatment
7. Symptom improvement in children with autism spectrum disorder
