Scientists test baby teeth for link to autism

HAVE DEVELOPED A TEST THAT CAN DETERMINE IF A CHILD HAS AUTISM BY LOOKING AT THEIR BABY TEETH (LAUREN) THE RESEARCH SHOWS IT ALL ABOUT HOW CHILDREN METABOLISE METALS

NINA CRISCUOLO SPOKE TO A LOCAL PEDIATRIC DENTIST TO SEE WHAT THIS COULD MEAN FOR FAMILIES AFFECTED BY AUTISM NOW AND IN THE FUTURE (NINA) THIS IS SO INTERESTING AND EVEN THE PEDIATRIC DENTIST I SPOKE TO AT RILEY HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN CALLED THE RESEARCH GROUNDBREAKING AS A CHILD GROWS, A NEW LAYER OF TOOTH IS FORMED EVERY DAY BASED ON THE CHEMICALS CIRCULATING IN THAT CHILD'S BODY

SIMILAR TO GROWTH RINGS ON A TREE HOW A CHILD METABOLIZES METALS IS CRITICAL TO NEURODEVELOPMENT IN EARLY LIFE SO THESE SCIENTISTS LOOKED AT A STUDY OF BABY TEETH IN SWEDEN INVOLVED 200 TWINS THOSE RESEARCHERS USED A LASER TO TEST WHETHER ZINC-COPPER CYCLES WERE DIFFERENT IN THOSE WITH AUTISM AND THEY WERE

THE STUDY WAS THEN DONE AGAIN IN THE U-S AND U-K FROM THAT DATA, THE SCIENTISTS DEVELOPED AN ALGORITHM THAT IS 90-PERCENT ACCURATE IN DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN TEETH OF CHILDREN WITH AUTISM AND WITHOUT CURRENTLY, A BIOCHEMICAL TEST DOES NOT EXIST FOR AUTISM

DOCTORS DIAGNOSE THE DISORDER USING CLINICAL ASSESSMENTS AND OBVSERVATIONS BUT SINCE CHILDREN LOSE THEIR TEETH TOO LATE FOR THIS TEST TO BE HELPFUL EXPERTS SAY THIS IS JUST ONE STEP TOWARD AN END GOAL

((THEY'RE HOPING THAT FUTURE WORK WOULD LOOK AT DEVELOPING SOME TYPE OF PRENATAL OR BLOOD ASSAY TO BE ABLE TO ESSENTIALLY LOOK AT, OK WE CAN EXPECT POSSIBLY AUTISM FROM THIS TEST )) IF PARENTS CAN FIND OUT EARLIER THEIR CHILD MAY HAVE AUTISM, DOCTORS CAN BEGIN INTERVENTION AND KNOW SOONER ABOUT ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH AUTISM TEETH ACTUALLY BEGIN TO FORM AS EARLY AS FOUR WEEKS IN UTERO SO DENTISTS AND DOCTORS SAY THEY CAN BE A VERY GOOD INDICATOR OF A CHILD'S HEALTH HISTORY (LAUREN) THIS IS GOING TO GET THE WHEELS TURNING FOR A LOT OF PARENTS WITH YOUNG KIDS MORE RESEARCH NEEDS TO BE DONE FOR THIS TEST TO BECOME A REALITY, BUT ARE THERE THINGS PARENTS SHOULD KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR RIGHT NOW IN TERMS OF SIGNS FOR AUTISM? (NINA) ABSOLUTELY IF YOUR CHILD IS NOT SMILING BY ABOUT SIX MONTHS, THAT'S ONE WARNING SIGN TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR SCREEN FOR A FEW MORE NO BATH-AND-FORTH BABBLING BY ABOUT 9 MONTHS

NOT RESPONDING TO HIS OR HER NAME BY 12 MONTHS AND NOT SPEAKING ANY WORDS BY ABOUT 16 MONTHS THESE ARE JUST WARNING SIGNS THOUGH, SO JUST TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU'RE NOTICING ANYTHING LIKE THAT
