In Reply to: Extremely Slow Weight Gain in DS child posted by Marlie in Miami on April 20, 2000 at 22:52:07:


My daughter has been on MSB Plus since she was six month old. Prior to taking this supplement,
she was small and fell below normal, of course,
on the growth chart. Four months after beginning
MSB, her growth was obvious. She went from being
way below normal on her chart to in the 50th percentile on weight and height.(This is on a normal growth chart, not a DS chart.) She is now
five and is in the 15th percentile on height, and
the 50th percentile on weight. Yes, a little short, but in addition to having DS, her father and I are both short also. Of course, Targeted
Nutritional Therapy is controversial since it's
opponents say that the research has not been done
to confirm it's effectiveness. However, MY research based on observation of my own child
has proven to me that the MSB has made a difference in her life. In addition to her wonderful growth, she has had fewer illnesses than
my "normal" oldest child when he was her age. She
can also, at the age of five, say her abcs(and
identify the letters), count to 10, and knows her
colors and shapes. Pretty typical of a five year
old wouldn't you say? Of course, she does have
delays in overall expressive language delay, but
does communicate very effectively using on average
three word sentences. As my pediatrician said,
"Well, we will never know if the supplement has
been a big factor, or if Kimberlee was going to
be a high functioning child with DS, but let's
not take any chances. We won't change a thing that
we're doing for her now. Whatever we're doing seems to be working." Well, I hope this information is helpful to you and your child. Good Luck and may God richly bless you and yours.
