Hi Dr. Hull. I hope you get my case history because I am desperate for help.
I am only 19 years old, but I am old enough to know that something isn’t right with me, and the doctors don’t know why.
I’ve been using aspartame products for just 5 months, but all of my health symptoms – all of them – started after using the sugar-free stuff.
I don’t think I am using the Equal, but I am not aware of what has it when its not labeled-sugar free.
I have been really sick and just had an MRI, major blood work, 2 EKG’s – all to find nothing. I’m experiencing dizziness upon standing, followed by a migraine headache in the frontal part of my head. Other times, the headaches would be on the occipital or temporal part of the brain.
It’s never in the same area like a sinus headache is.
Recently I was working out and during my mile run, I had problems breathing. Then my heart began to burn. It was frightening!
I called my mom and she told me to sit down, and if I did not experience labored breathing to go to my dorm and get my breathing pump I use for my asthma. I did, and eventually the burning stopped.
Recently I had a black out, and I am terrified. Please help me.
I am seeing a neurologist but he is not taking my situation seriously. I can not continue to function in college with this on-going condition. My mom flew in to see about me this weekend, and we miraculously discovered your website.
Here is a list of the diet products I have been using:
- Slim-Fast Diet Supplement – strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate
- Splenda sugar substitute
- Crystal Light lemonade
- Sweet tea and fruit punch
- Lays original light potato chips with Olestra
- Yoplait fat-free yogurt
- Breywer’s Granola and yogurt mix
- Non refrigerated Parmolet fat-free milk
From Dr. Hull
Thank you for contacting me. You are still young enough to beat this quickly.
As soon as you avoid ALL diet chemicals, your health should begin to restore. Take a good multi-vitamin and a vitamin C every day. Drink mostly water and eat real foods; eat smaller portions throughout the day that will satisfy you and you should not gain any weight.
Actually, the diet drinks make the body hang on to weight in the long run.
This diet sweetener fad is worth so much money to the corporations, and they have so much control over those who are addicted to these unnatural sweeteners, it’s going to take everyone of us to keep driving the truth forward, one person at a time. I am grateful that you found my work.
Keep up YOUR good work, and thank you for your participation in helping others, especially those around you who will see you get well by ditching
the diet fizz. Don’t worry about what your doc says, either – the AMA has told them to stay away from this issue – it is too litigious.
Can you imagine what your life would be like if your doc had discussed this with you?
