Comments for Kristie Finnan http://divadietitian.com The Skinny On Nutrition Sun, 08 Jun 2014 13:31:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.19 Comment on What Is Causing This Behavior by Teresa http://divadietitian.com/behavior-issues-tics-singulair/#comment-10055 Sun, 08 Jun 2014 13:31:51 +0000 http://kristiefinnan.com/?p=3358#comment-10055 I know this is an older article/post but I hope you are still striving to get awareness out there. I am in the medical field myself (pharmacy… 15 yrs) & my own daughter was a victims of Singulair. She was on it off/on from age 3-8. When she started on the med there were NO horrible side effects listed, so of course years later when the harsh ones were added we were not aware. Even working in a pharmacy we were never told of updates. My daughter now has OCD & ADHD.
I read about you trying to keep natural in your sons diet (no aspartame etc). I found that when my daughter was on antibiotics like amoxicillin it increased her OCD. Then I found out they put aspartame in the antibiotics! It is now in MOST ALL liquids as prescription & as OTC such as Zyrtec & Claritin just to name a few.
I wanted to invite you & possible Richele from the post above (if she reads this) to join a group of parents that are on Facebook. We have a few pages but one is called “Making the side effects of Singulair aware to parents of children & teens”. We are a group of parents from around the world that have either had our children affected by this drug or they themselves have been through the nightmare on it. One of our moms is a lady I look up to with SOOO much respect. She lost her son to suicide due to the psychiatric effects it caused him. You may have seen him in the media years ago, his name is Cody Miller. My own daughter was headed down that road but luckily was to young to know how to act on her suicidal thoughts… She just wanted to die & end her life. It’s been a VERY LONG & emotional ride. She now has to take Zoloft to counteract the damage done to her body (low serotonin levels). We are hoping to ween her off this med this summer with ALL natural herbs/essential oils. I’ve been researching things as much as I can with no help from Dr.’s. This support group has been soooooo helpful for so many people. It has given us a chance to come together & recognize what helps & causes setbacks for our children. I hope you consider joining us & keep spreading the word of your son’s story. In my own job (pharmacy) I warn people DAILY about the dangers of this drug. Some are extremely grateful b/c they didn’t know what was causing their issues of depression, severe stomach issues,nightmares, etc. Not everyone has been so friendly with the knowledge I share but at least it was presented to them, we never had that luxury!!
I hope your son has had a 100% recovery since your post- God Bless you and your family.

Comment on My Life in a Nutshell by Lauren Swann http://divadietitian.com/my-life-in-a-nutshell/#comment-3569 Sat, 17 Nov 2012 16:50:59 +0000 http://kristiefinnan.com/?p=3743#comment-3569 My sister graduated from Archbishop Wood, back then high school for girls

and my first intro to prescribed diets for dogs was in the late ’80s was a Chicago vet prescribing Science Diet KdA for my 12 y.o. Wire Hair Fox Terrier.

I kinda know what you are going through, I was treating my Coz with subcutaneous fluid injections. After 13 years of clean blood tests he’d contracted Lyme’s. but his renal failure may have just been aging too, he’d just turned 15 and had been really healthy nearly all his life, we were rarely at the vet except for routine visits.

All the best! My vet’s ass’t said she’s seen older dogs bounce back and we are lucky we have even these treatments (after the first several nights of treatment Coz would come and wait patiently for his! I think he knew it was helping him feel better)

I found a worm on my CSA pepper the other day and just watched him crawl around for a minute before I washed him away!

I like my peaches a little messy, meaning that I like bug spots and bruises, and weird leakages. If they’re wormy even better. If a bug or worm can stay alive, so can I ;)
Thanks Kristy, for posting this story. You are a great mom and keep up the good work!

It’s not worth your health. It sucks you spent so much time and energy on them, but if you suspect the peaches, don’t eat them. There’s a few studies out about how what we eat can affect future generations of our family’s DNA. If you plan anymore children, or think an accidental pregnancy is posible, then don’t eat them for sure.

I can’t believe I didn’t ask! No more assuming over here. I should have known they were sprayed as they were so beautiful. It has also been such a bad season for bugs so I should have known. I value your opinion so much and am so thankful you left a comment :) He does seem to be doing MUCH better yesterday and today- thankfully!

I also know that they are on near the top of the dirty dozen list so I only buy them when I can find them organic. This summer I began calling every local farmer that I found on local harvest and in the directory to ask if they sprayed and without fail every single one said that they sprayed. They said there is no way to get around it in our area. So sadly, I gave up my hopes of buying bushels and preserving them. With Cole’s health issues and with kids in general I wouldn’t chance it if I was you, but that’s just my opinion.
