New Educational Video: Dr. Jim Sears, Pediatrician and co-host of The Doctors, Discusses the New Acetaminophen Dosing Changes and Offers Great Tips for Helping the “Medicine” To Go Down
Acetaminophen is one of the most commonly used pain and fever relievers for infants and children and is safe and effective when used as directed. But recent changes to all infant's and children's over-the-counter liquid acetaminophen products that recently hit store shelves can be confusing for parents. And the changes are particularly important for the infants products, which have a new formulation and dosing mechanism. The new standard concentration liquid acetaminophen products for infants and children under age 2 will be 160 mg/5 ml. But what does this mean for parents?
In this new educational video www.youtube.com/pediacare, Dr. Jim Sears, pediatrician and co-host of The Doctors, addresses the new, smart changes to the infant’s and children’s acetaminophen products along with a demonstration of the new dosing mechanisms. Dr. Sears even provides a few tips for helping the “medicine” to go down. Something all parents can use!

Need Reviewers for Konsyl Dietary Fiber Products
We’ve all heard about the digestive and other health benefits of having enough fiber, but in addition to helping promote regularity and good digestive health adequate soluble fiber intake offers an abundance of health benefits, ranging from a reduced risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol, to reducing blood sugar absorption, thereby assisting in the management of Type-2 Diabetes. Fiber can also aid in weight loss by making you feel fuller longer.
Psyllium fiber, such as the fiber found in Konsyl Fiber Supplements http://www.konsyl.com, is a bulk-forming soluble fiber derived from the outer coating, or "husk" of the psyllium plant's seeds. Because psyllium does not come from wheat it is therefore gluten free and safe for celiac patients.
