Board Certified in Vision Therapy
CK was examined on January 9,2001. At the time of evaluation, the primary concern was regarding CK’s tendency to close one eye when he points to a particular object which has been occurring less frequently lately. CK also demonstrates unusual visual behaviors including opening his eyes very wide, crossing his eyes, squinting and turning his head to point. These behaviors were first noted at approximately one year of age.
CK’s general health is reportedly good. At the time of evaluation he was taking no medications, had no reported allergies and was taking vitamin supplements. CK has been receiving educational, speech, and occupational therapy through Early Intervention Services.
0: Reviewing lab tests: IAG test was positive with a 51 IAG which indicates he has marked problems with his tryptophan metabolism. IAG also disrupts membranes which could cause a leaky gut and probably problems with the bloodibrain barrier. His gliadomorphin is also elevated at 27 and urinary dermorphin is also elevated. His urinary organic acid test showed that he possibly has a B- 1 deficiency and a CoQ 10 deficiency. I suggest 5 0 mg/day. Essential fatty acid study was normal. He is on Efulex.? This is the first one we have found that has been normal. GI health panel is close to normal. He had I+ Rhodotorula yeast. He had low SIgA. His inflammatory markers were normal.

I hope my coming helped and that these notes are useful. CK is doing great. I am impressed. He has a ways to go, but I am imnressed. Lea is doing great too. Sometimes everything is a little overwhelming, but I hope by watching she got a few ideas on ways to include CK. Hope things are going well in all areas of your lives. I will talk with you soon. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. Thanks
