Vitamin D Supplement Causes Death Of French Baby
While parents think giving their babies different vitamins will be for the best, a french baby who was given Vitamin D supplement ended up dead. France decided to act upon the incident and suspended the sale of the said supplement to prevent any type of reocurrence that is similar to the 10-year-old baby's death.
The baby who recently passed last December 21 was given a dose of Uvesterol D. This vitamin is commonly given to French babies under the age of 5 to prevent vitamin D deficiency. However, this case had a different turn and ended badly because of the supplement's brand.
As per BBC News, Health Minister Marisol Touraine informed the public that taking vitamin D supplements in general is not harmful. In this case, it was the specific product that caused the event. She then went on to promise parents transparent, objective and reliable information.
ABS CBN News tells more about the incident that using the mentioned brand, the baby was given a dose orally via a plastic pipette. There were signs of suffocation two hours prior to the baby's death from a cardio-respiratory arrest. The National Medical Safety Agency (ANSM) previously released a warning regarding Uvesterol D in 2006. However, there was no death linked to the product from the time it was released in the market in 1990.
Uvestrol D has been revealed to be feared by many over the years for its notoriousness with documented cases that were linked to serious illness. According to French daily Le Monde, that was the only feature that made the product different from other brands of vitamin D in liquid form.
Crinex, the vitamin D supplement's creator and producer have changed the pipette in 2006 to prevent the users from administering the liquid too quickly. In 2013, ANSM critically highlighted the importance of giving the medicine drip-by-drip before feeding and positioning the baby in a semi-sitting position.
