A promising clinical trial to reduce the severity of autistic disorders

Of course, too much diuretics could be life-threatening, don't go overboard.
I found herbal diuretics useful in stopping PMS. They can be gotten at health food stores.

Yehezkel Ben-Ari, Founder and Honorary Director of INMED (Institut de Neurobiologie de la Méditerranée), INSERM, and Eric Lemonnier, a clinician specialising in autism at the CHRU of Brest, recently published the results of a double-blind clinical trial to evaluate the usefulness of a diuretic in the treatment of autism. Sixty children between 3 and 11 years old with autism or Asperger’s syndrome were treated for 3 months either with a diuretic to reduce their intracellular chloride levels or with a placebo. Although this therapy is not curative, it nevertheless reduced the autistic disorders’ severity in three-quarters of the children. The researchers have filed a request for authorisation to perform a multi-centre European clinical trial in order to determine more precisely the population concerned by this therapy.

Details of this work have been published in the Translational Psychiatry review dated 11 December 2012.
