Dimethylglycine and Autism Ranking: Limited negative evidence

Audience

According to the WebMD website, accessed on 16 January 2017, dimethylglycine is used by people with a range of conditions including:

“... attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), allergies, respiratory disorders, pain and swelling (inflammation), cancer, alcoholism, and drug addiction.

The WebMD website goes on to state that DMG

“… is also used to improve speech and behavior in autism, nervous system function, liver function, the body’s use of oxygen, and athletic performance. “

The WebMD website also states, however, that there is insufficient evidence to determine if DMG is effective for most of these conditions and that it is probably ineffective for conditions such as autism and epilepsy.
