You might try and make sure he is eating all natural food that are not processed or junk. Limit his sugar intake, Give him prunes or raisins and other fruits for snacks. Give him some green tea with no sweeteners and a little lemon for a drink with his snacks. It might help him with his bowel and urine movement. I also suggest you speak to your doctor about it. There is also a wonderful site for parents of children with Autism you might want to check out and ask such questions there since they may have experienced your issues.
