While it’s not yet been explored by any high-quality study, some theories and anecdotal evidence suggests that low-carb diets could be beneficial for people with ADHD, and perhaps also with autism.

If so, our columnist Anne Mullens would love to hear from you for an article she is writing for Diet Doctor. If you are a parent with experience using low carb to help manage ADHD and/or autism in children and want to help other parents by telling your story, please email
