My son was diagnosed at age 2 with Autism, and has had many problems with his bowels since. Docs blame it on the Autism, because up until the last year or so he wouldn't eat meat before (because of texture issues). He now eats pretty much anything, but still has bowel issues. Docs have done xrays and found a mass of stool backed up in his bowel, which was causing stool to leak around it causing diarrhea constantly. He was put on Miralax about a year ago to help, but now he goes back and forth between constipation and diarrhea. Most of the time the diarrhea is a bright green color (almost like bile), and I wonder if there isn't something wrong with his digestion. Has anyone ever had a child with Autism that was found to have the same issues, with food and stuff moving through the digestive tract too quickly, thus coming out the green color, and the child not being able to absorb the right nutrients because of it moving through the digestive tract too quickly. I appreciate any help anyone can give me on this...thanksAnswer Question
