Herbalife and Toxic Hepatitis
Herbalife and its supplements have been attacked over the years for a number of different reasons. First, the company’s multi-level-marketing business plan has been accused of being a pyramid scheme. Also, the products they sell have been deemed unsafe and even banned in some countries. Finally, Herbalife customers have suddenly become ill and contracted debilitating, life threatening liver diseases.
We at RepresentYou have noticed a substantial history of Herbalife consumers suddenly getting sick and believe it is enough to warrant some attention from the legal community. As we have familiarized ourselves with studies and complaints implicating Herbalife we have noticed a number of alarming things. Among the most common issues we saw was the sudden diagnoses of Toxic Hepatitis in habitual supplement users.
What is Toxic Hepatitis?
Toxic Hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver as a result of an exposure to a toxic substance. Notable causes of the disease are alcohol, chemicals, drugs, or supplements. Like many liver diseases the symptoms Toxic Hepatitis can vary from patient to patient. Some of the most common symptoms are listed below:
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weight loss
- Dark urine
Like the symptoms the severity of toxic hepatitis can vary as well. Often times the disease will go away on its own after the exposure to the toxin stops. Sometimes though, toxic hepatitis can cause permanent liver damage.
Herbalife’s Connection to Hepatitis
A lawsuit filed alleged over the last ten years or so according to a complaint alarming number of Herbalife consumers could have been diagnosed with toxic hepatitis. Most notably, in Switzerland, there have been 10 cases of terminal toxic hepatitis linked to Herbalife since 1998. It is believed, by the medical professionals who conducted the Swiss study and many others around the world, that a number of ingredients found in Herbalife weight-loss, nutritional, and skin care supplements can be directly linked to the cause of toxic hepatitis and a number of other liver diseases and illnesses.
