Benfotiamine exploration

Benfotiamine is a dietary supplement that is a derivative of thiamine (AKA vitamin B1). From my CFS research, it may have benefits for autism.

Bottom Line

After reviewing with your physician, you may wish to consider supplementing, especially if there is aggression or more severe behaviors. See my ME/CFS post for dosages used.

The Beta-Amyloid aspect is interesting. I am a high function ASD who have had several rounds of ME/CFS (all triggered by stress, typically interpersonal). In one of these rounds, I had a SPECT scan. The radiologist read it as early Alzheimer’s. It is probable that he saw the build up of a pattern associated with beta-Amyloids. With recovery, the pattern disappeared.
