    and we were very interested in what she had to say. She said these were made up by top doctors and specialists and that they had great stuff in them. I looked at the ingredients and saw immediately two suspicious ones....soy protein isolate and sodium caseinate. I had been reading about hidden sources of MSG and these are on the list, since they are related to glutamate, part of the MSG makeup. So we said thanks but no thanks. I'm so grateful for the knowledge that I get off of this board! Terri

    able to spot the hidden problems with the supplements. It is so hard sometimes to get the right stuff and it is usually so expensive. It definitely pays to give it your full attention.

    BTW, did your son get to start college this year? I certainly hope so.

    Yes, he was able to start in Jan. He made it the whole quarter without missing a day...pretty good, huh? His grades were passable, which was all I was asking. He will be continuing with a minimum full load this quarter. He has a sleep study tonight- wish us luck that they'll find something! Thanks for writing....Terri
