Herbalife Liver Damage

An alarming number of long time and habitual Herbalife supplement users have, at some point, discovered some sort of liver damage. In some cases it is mild and curable, but in others it is severe and can even turn into potentially fatal diseases. Below is a list and brief explanation of certain types of liver damage and disease that some have blamed on Herbalife products:

  • Fatty Liver- Fatty liver disease is most simply defined by its name.  It is literally a build up of fat in the liver that is unhealthy but not considered overwhelmingly serious
  • Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis- Commonly referred to as NASH, this disease starts with a build up of fat in the liver, progresses to inflammation and can ultimately lead to irreversible liver damage.  In the most severe cases, NASH can lead to cirrhosis and permanently damage the liver’s functionality.
  • Toxic Hepatitis- Toxic Hepatitis is the inflamation of the liver as a result of an exposure to a toxic substance.  Notable causes of the disease are alcohol, chemicals, drugs, or supplements (such as Herbalife products)
  • Cirrhosis- An advanced disease in which the liver is damaged permanently and no longer able to work
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma- Abbreviated as HCC, is a primary cancer of the liver, most commonly caused by one of the above diseases going untreated.
