Key MethodAbstract To obtain information on the safety and efficacy of the gluten-free/casein-free (GFCF) diet, we placed 14 children with autism, age 3–5 years, on the diet for 4–6 weeks and then conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled challenge study for 12 weeks while continuing the diet, with a 12-week follow-up. Dietary challenges were delivered via weekly snacks that contained gluten, casein, gluten and casein, or placebo. With nutritional counseling, the diet was safe and well-tolerated…Expand
Influence of a Combined Gluten-Free and Casein-Free Diet on Behavior Disorders in Children and Adolescents Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A 12-Month Follow-Up Clinical Trial
TLDR
A 6-month GFCF diet do not induce significant changes in behavioral symptoms of autism and urinary beta-casomorphin concentrations and further studies with a long follow-up period are needed to identify better those respondents to G FCF diets.
Influence of a Gluten-free, Casein-free Diet on Behavioral Disturbances in Children and Adolescents Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A 3-month Follow-up Pilot Study
ABSTRACT Introduction: Diet and dietary interventions have drawn considerable attention in the literature as etiopathogenic factors and therapeutic approaches to Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD),
Ketogenic diet versus gluten free casein free diet in autistic children: a case-control study
TLDR
Depending on the parameters measured in this study, modified Atkins diet and gluten free casein free diet regimens may safely improve autistic manifestations and could be recommended for children with ASD.
The prevalence of gluten free diet use among preschool children with autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
Current use and ever use of a gluten free diet were prevalent in children with ASD identified in SEED and child GI conditions and developmental regression were positively and independently associated with having ever used a GFD.

This literature review examines various research articles to survey knowledge and identify existing problems in the study of a gluten free casein free diet on Autism Spectrum Disorder. It provides an
Dietary and Micronutrient Treatments for Children with Neurodevelopment Disorders
TLDR
There is reasonably robust evidence for the use of some dietary and nutritional approaches such as reduction of food dyes and supplementing with essential fatty acids and broad spectrum micronutrients.
Nutritional and Dietary Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Systematic Review
TLDR
There is little evidence to support the use of nutritional supplements or dietary therapies for children with ASD, and limited evidence for symptom improvement.

A Gluten-Free Diet, Not an Appropriate Choice without a Medical Diagnosis
TLDR
A review of existing data shows that there are detrimental effects to going gluten free, including loss of the dietary fiber, deficiencies in dietary minerals and vitamins, and potential heavy metal exposure.

In this review we will be looking at nutritional intervention that can be used to achieve better results in management and treatment of autism spectrum disorder. Eating disorders are widespread in

TLDR
Although preliminary, this study demonstrates how a controlled clinical trial of the GFCF diet can be conducted, and suggests directions for future research.
Effects of Gluten Free / Casein Free Diet in Young Children with Autism: A Pilot Study
TLDR
The results do not support use of a GFCF diet in ASD, and it is possible that a greater period of time is required for treatment before gains can be observed.
Gluten-free and casein-free diets in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders: a systematic review
TLDR
Critical analysis of each study's methodological rigor and results reveal that the current corpus of research does not support the use of GFCF diets in the treatment of ASD.
The ScanBrit randomised, controlled, single-blind study of a gluten- and casein-free dietary intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders
TLDR
The results suggest that dietary intervention may positively affect developmental outcome for some children diagnosed with ASD and is unable to disqualify potential effects derived from intervention outside of dietary changes.

TLDR
To determine the efficacy of gluten- and/or casein- free diets as an intervention to improve behaviour, cognitive and social functioning in individuals with autism, a small number of randomised controlled trials are needed.
