April 22, 2015 | By Garrett Montgomery More

Eloise Parry’s diet pill death is a cautionary tale for young women, according to her mother. Fiona Parry, a British mom, is on a mission to convince the government to make the dangerous diet pill containing the DNP or 2,4-dinitrophenol illegal after her 21-year-old daughter, Eloise Parry, consumed eight diet pills and died.

Eloise Parry’s diet pill death is being investigated by British authorities. A mourning mother by the name of Fiona Parry has made it a priority for the death of her 21-year-old daughter, Eloise Parry, to serve as a cautionary tale for other people all over the world.

On April 12, Eloise Parry aka Ella, a Glyndwr University student, drove herself to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital after falling ill. Eloise Parry became sick after ingesting eight diet pills she purchased on the Internet made with an “extremely dangerous” industrial chemical, according to her mother.

That is seven more than what is recommended on the pack. The university student was able to explain to doctors what she consumed before her health took a rapid turn for the worse. Within hours, the young woman died in a horrible way where she burned from within. The reason?

The eight diet pills Parry swallowed contained an industrial chemical known as 2,4-dinitrophenol or DNP, which is highly toxic and is not intended for human consumption.

Fiona Parry, a mother of 5 and a chemistry teacher, said that her daughter never stood a chance. Mrs. Parry shared:

“The drug was in her system, there was no antidote, and she had taken a lethal dose. As Ella deteriorated, the staff in A&E did all they could to stabilize her. As the drug kicked in and started to make her metabolism soar, they attempted to cool her down, but they were fighting an uphill battle.”

She also added:

“She was literally burning up from within. When she stopped breathing, they put her on a ventilator and carried on fighting to save her. When her heart stopped they couldn’t revive her.”

The devastated mother went on to explain that her late daughter was often bullied as a child because of her ginger hair and her size. The mother believed that Miss Parry, who was anorexic and bulimic, was taking the harmful pill because she felt pressured to “look a certain way.” The grieving parent explained:

“That would have been the initial trigger. Kids are cruel; people do make comments – we get a vindictive little kick out of making somebody else feel worse. It may have been the cause, I just don’t know.”

Eloise Parry’s diet pill death has pushed the educator to come forward to warn other people not to take tablets containing DNP. Here is Eloise Parry’s mom plea to young people who might be facing body image-related issues:

“My message would be: Please don’t take this drug. They will take their toll. It is an awful way to die. I can’t change the fact that Ella had her mixed up moments and wasn’t a perfect teenager and I can’t change the fact that we lost her, which I regret deeply. But what I do want to do is make sure no-one else makes the same mistake that she made.”

A spokesperson for Glyndwr University issued a statement explaining that Miss Parry was a brilliant student working on her Families and Childcare Studies degree and often volunteered with the West Mercia Women’s Aid and the YMCA.

Police are currently investigating where Miss Parry purchased the fatal diet pills and are urging anyone with information to contact them.

What are your thoughts on Eloise Parry’s death? Should these diet pills be banned?

    absolutely! When you by diet pills from questionable internet sites there is no way to know exactly what are in these pills. Your better off accepting the way you look and go on a medical based diet from a reputable Doctor or clinic. There should be some way to weed out questable internet sites. My heart goes out to this family .It’s a shame that people would rather bring somebody else down by bullying them. is it done to boost their own feelings of self worth/or lack of. this should be a strong warning to everyone about falling into the trap of looking a certain way.
