Pediasure side effects

Hello Doctor,

My one year old baby has been ill and lacking appetite for the past few days. I was thinking of giving her some Pediasure to supplement her lack of eating well.
Problem is that i have been doing some research and came across a forum that says the product has some side effects such as High Blood Sugar Severe Low Amount of Phosphate in the Blood and a lot more.

Do you know of any side effects that can be as a result of this product?

I have not heard about any problem of this nature with Pediasure. It is normally an excellent product.

Hello, can any one guide me properly. My son is now 7 years old. When he was 2 years old he has been diagnosed that he is having Autism. The Specialist Doctor for Autism Treatment informed me to avoid Milk and instead give him Pediasure. He is taking Pediasure in a day 2 to 3 times in the form of powder. He likes it very much and take . He is hale and healthy and normal weight of 24 kg. but not fat. Very rarely false sick. Almost in a day he consume nearly 50 gm of powder. Please let me know whether I can continue giving him this milk powder..

I have been giving this milk powder for the last 2 years.My sons love it very much. for a day he drinks 4 to 5 times with his normal meals.(some days) Up to now he is fine. I must say this , his weight was very low one of the sales girls introduce Pediasure for me when i was doing my marketing at Carefour Dubai. She told me after 90 days his weight will be go up and she got my contact number to call me. That was correct my sons weight went up and they called me to check how is my son? I thank Pediasure ! THE WORLD BEST MILK ....!!
