  • I really believe we are missing the mark on my 8 year old son. He has been sick'like since he was 4 months old. He is being treated for ADHD/Aspergers/Allergies, but he is NO better. Now, he has petechiae around his eyes.

    I'm at a loss. He has been cleared of Pediatric RA. Now what?

    I find it interesting that your child has both ADHD and bleeding both which are linked to Vitamin K defeciency. I would have your child tested for Vitamin K, D, Zinc, iron, hemoglobin defects like sickle cell, and a great history and physical from a doctor who takes the time to check for other sources. These are blood tests by the way. He should also have ALCAT allergy testing for foods.
