Q.

Supplements for toddler with special needs

I have a 2 year old son with West Syndrome, he has developmental delays due to hydrocephalus and West Syndrome. He takes Zinplex and Cod Liver oil once a day. Someone has suggested Eye Q and Reutineira vitamin D. What does the Dr suggest?

Your son is on excellent supplements. Zinplex has a high zinc content. Cod liver oil contains vitamins A and D and Omega 3. There is no need to change. It would be worth while joining one of the West Syndrome support groups such as at www.ukinfantilespasmstrust.org
