I have a a 12 year old son who has autism and has been diagnosed since he was 6.
He has always been fussy with his food, but just recently we caught him making himself sick on an number of occasions and we know of other times he has been sick many other occasion but we dont know if he has done that himself. He is also very underweight and all his bones are visible through his skin.
We had him back to camhs where we have been told it too early to diagnose anorexia . Also they said to give him vegetable fats in abundance such as nuts seeds and fish !! not gonna happen !
Just after some advice really or similar experiences
Thanks claire x
I am sorry that you are having problems at the moment. I have posted a link below for an advice sheet that might be able to help you.
I wonder if your son makes himself sick after he has eaten a certain kind of food or whether it is more random than that. If he has a favourite food that you don't let him have very often because of it is not very good for him, then I would let him have that just to get something inside of him. If he loves pizza, then let him eat it as much as possible because at least he will be getting something that he can keep down.
I would also go back to CAMHS. My experience is that they will never do anything unless you create a fuss. Their advice about nuts, seeds and fish is, quite frankly, pointless and they need to think again.
I hope this helps
