David’s pediatrician surmised that the sugar in the milk lingered in David’s mouth and caused his teeth to decay buy discount avana 200 mg erectile dysfunction injections videos. As a result, the little boy had fillings in his teeth begin- ning at the age of three. As his decaying baby teeth fell out one by one and began to be replaced by permanent ones, everyone rejoiced at the chance to be proactive and pre- vent any further tooth decay. He got his new teeth cleaned regularly and the dentist applied a protective coating to his teeth to prevent cavities. But after all he had been through, David was so nervous about getting any new cav- ities that he avoided most sweets and took his toothbrush wherever he went. As he grew older, his mother, Hilary, allowed him to have artificially sweet- ened drinks, desserts, and gum so he wouldn’t have to feel so deprived next to the other kids. Other than tooth decay, David was a healthy boy with only the usual array of common childhood diseases like colds, occasional ear infections, and a hefty case of whooping cough. Starting inexplicably at about age seven, he began having a constant runny nose, stomachaches, and diarrhea. On some days, the diarrhea was so bad he was afraid to go to school because he had once soiled his pants when he couldn’t make it to the restroom on time. The pediatrician, who at first thought he was looking at a stomach virus, soon became concerned with the chronicity of the symptoms. This specialist eliminated all the usual causes of diarrhea in children including E. He ruled out parasites like giardia and cryptosporidium and even rotavirus. He had David’s blood tested for hemolytic-uremic syndrome, which was nega- tive, and as a last resort ordered a series of upper and lower gastrointestinal tests to rule out anything more serious. When all of these tests turned out negative, he suggested David should see an allergist to determine if there were any food allergies. The pediatric allergist guessed David might be allergic to the milk he so adored because his symptoms were a common indication of a milk allergy. She performed a number of tests that revealed that David had devel- oped an allergy to milk and milk products. The allergist told Hilary that once she eliminated these products from her son’s diet, his gastrointestinal symptoms would most probably disappear. Hilary followed the doctor’s orders, and interestingly enough, while David’s runny nose stopped, the stomachaches and diarrhea did not. Her son had suffered enough; first with the tooth decay and now for almost a year with stomachaches and diarrhea. Rosenbaum and passed along a copy of the Eight Steps to Self-Diagnosis for Hilary to do on David’s behalf. Using this model, Hilary was actually able to solve David’s problem all on her own. She paid particu- lar attention to the timing of his symptoms in Step One. Every time David complained of a stomachache or had a bout of diarrhea, she tried to deter- mine what had happened immediately before and whether there was a rela- tionship. She instructed David to do the same thing himself when he was at school. Then she thought about the history, particularly the inception of these symptoms, in Step Two and recalled exactly what was happening in David’s life at the time. All of it related to David’s past medical problems, specifi- cally his tooth decay and her reaction to his fear of developing more cavi- 196 Diagnosing Your Mystery Malady ties. Going through these steps showed a pattern of David chewing gum immediately before the onset of his symptoms. Because David had become so anxious about getting more cavities and was carrying his toothbrush around everywhere as if his life depended on it, Hilary thought she would ease her son’s anxiety by allowing him to chew sugarless gum. She had explained to him that sugarless gum would not cause tooth decay. Fre- quently, instead of a sweet that was worrisome for him, David would chew a stick of sugarless gum, and his stomachaches appeared afterward. Hilary looked at the ingredient labels on the sugarless products and found sorbitol listed. It is often added to processed foods such as chewing gum, diabetic candy, Popsicles, and even some children’s medications like cough syrup to make them taste sweet. Using the Internet, Hilary researched that ingredient and found there was a documented condition known as sor- bitol intolerance. Stomachaches, gas, and diarrhea are very common symp- toms of this condition. Almost immediately his stomachaches and diar- rhea were cured, and his mystery malady was solved!

At the time of his death he was within an ace of seeing all the reforms and ideas for which he had striven so hard and so long finally accepted and put into practice. Frank Holdsworth was born and brought up in Bradford and, apart from his years of training, first at Cambridge, where he was an exhibitioner, and then at St. George’s Hospital in London, he spent the whole of his professional life in Sheffield.
