Kim Kardashian’s life has been in turmoil recently dealing with being pregnant amidst problems with the FDA. US Weekly reported on Aug. 11, 2015, Kardashian has posed naked in order to prove that she’s pregnant. Meanwhile NBC News reports the FDA has warned Kardashian about an Instagram drug endorsement.
On Tuesday Kardashian showed up on social media in photographs completely naked in order to prove that she is really pregnant with her second child. The 34 year old reality star noted in the caption to a nude photo that it has been said she’s too skinny and so she must be faking being pregnant. She went on to say that others have said she’s too big so she must be faking being pregnant. Kardashian’s answer to all of this controversy was to post a photo of herself completely naked showing her pregnant body.
While trying to enjoy being pregnant again Kardashian has been hit with some trouble from the FDA. Although Kardashian is very well known for her selfies which often leave nothing to the imagination the Food and Drug Administration hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon of being a fan of hers. A recent Instagram picture which featured Kardashian with the morning sickness drug Diclegis and accompanying text which promoted the drug’s benefits got more than 450,000 likes. However the FDA has now issued a formal warning letter for the drug’s manufacturer.
In the FDA letter it was stated that the social media post has been misleading because it has presented various efficacy claims for Diclegis without communicating any risk information. The posts from Kardashian which promoted the drug have since been deleted. It has been discovered Kardashian was paid to promote the drug. She said the drug made her feel better and that studies have shown there was no increased risk to the baby from the drug. The FDA nevertheless continues to say this drug has risks which should be communicated to the public.
This is all very curious. Although the FDA is right to insist that risk information be included with Diclegis and other drugs, psychiatrists nevertheless routinely cripple and prematurely kill people daily with psychiatric drugs which they carelessly prescribe with no risk information communicated to the patients and with the courts behind them. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights which is very popular in many Hollywood circles exposes these life threatening problems with psychiatrists and their misuse of highly toxic drugs regularly. If the FDA desires more respect from the public it should be a lot more aggressive about hitting psychiatrists and their judges with warnings about failing to communicate drug risks to the public.
