Study: Possible link between stomach problems, autism
Researchers are looking into a possible link between autism and stomach problems.
New research shows that children with autism are six to eight times more likely to report tummy troubles, like bloating, constipation and diarrhea than other children.
They also tend to be more irritable, socially withdrawn and exhibit hyperactivity.
Experts are now recommending a full gastrointestinal evaluation for children diagnosed with the disorder.
They hope treating undiagnosed stomach problems could also help improve behavioral issues.
