In a recent Instagram post, the American television and social media personality, socialite, and model failed to mention any risks that follow the consumption of Diclegis. Apparently, it is a drug she credited for completely removing her morning sickness problems.
A letter from the Food and Drug Administration was sent to her on Tuesday where she was asked to remove the post, or face “FDA regulatory action” which include “seizure or injunction”. It sounds pretty serious, and once you dig into the research a bit more, it actually is. Not only did Kim omit all the risks of consuming Diclegis, but she went on to say how “it’s been studied and there was no increased rick [sic] to the baby.”
The FDA does not fully agree with that, and they claim Diclegis has not been studied in women with hyperemesis gravidarum. With all the fans and followers she has, it’s a pretty dangerous thing to say, especially since hyperemesis gravidarum affects 0.5–2.0% of pregnant women. The Instagram post has since been removed from her account.
