2.  Dietary treatment of hyperlysinaemia. 
Archives of Disease in Childhood  1989;64(5):716-720.
We describe the lysine restricted, dietary management of three out of four siblings who were identified as having hyperlysinaemia. The diets, started in the neonatal period, were maintained for varying periods with unpredictable success. The propositus, who was not treated, was diagnosed at the age of 5 years, by which time he was already severely handicapped, presumably because of his metabolic disorder. Tentative recommendations are put forward for the management of this seemingly rare disorder. Mild chronic ammonia toxicity may be a factor in the pathogenesis of this condition.

3.  Parents' understanding of coeliac disease and diet. 
Archives of Disease in Childhood  1985;60(7):672-674.
Parents of 50 children with coeliac disease were questioned about their knowledge of the disorder and the child's dietary compliance. Twenty of 50 parents admitted that compliance was less than strict. This correlated with poor knowledge of the disease which in turn was related to the family's social status. Membership of the Coeliac Society (23 of 50) correlated with both parental understanding and dietary compliance. Greater emphasis on dietary compliance and education of parents and patients is required.
