A case report about a woman whose migraines were being triggered by the artificial sweetener Sucralose/Splenda was published by the Albert Einstein School of Medicine, dept. of neurology.
When the physicians withdrew the sucralose her migraines stopped and when they reintroduced it, they began again.
If you look carefully at the labels of low calorie drinks and foods you will find sucralose in many of them. It is not yet clear if sucralose serves as a trigger for lots of migraine sufferers. Only time will tell.
Interestingly, this woman also reported menstrual migraines that were caused by her birth control pills. When the physicians switched from a fixed estrogen birth control medicine to a triphasic, her menstrual migraines improved significantly.
If you are on birth control pills and feel that they may be contributing to your migraine headaches, speak to your doctor about possibly switching to a different one.
