Many autistic people have an "intolerance", (not allergy) to gluten and casine, the proteins found in wheat and milk. Eating these foods don't cause the typical allergy symptoms, though they do cause acid reflux, brain fog, and chronic constipation with intermittent diarrhea. Basically the gut can't break down the proteins properly.
Do you have any other digestive issues? Have you been to an autism specialist? Autism has been found to be connected with many GI issues and a GF/CF diet has been found to help many of these problems in some people with ASD.
