HERBALIFE LIVER CANCER

Herbalife Side Effects: Herbalife Liver Cancer

Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is primary liver cancer.  The disease is usually secondary to some preliminary and often untreated liver disease such as toxic hepatitis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.  Due to the dormant nature of these less serious liver ailments they are often unrecognized until they have attacked your liver and progressed into HCC.  hepatocellular carcinoma is one of, if not the, most developed and serious liver diseases.  More often than not it cannot be treated and eventually leads to complete liver failure.  In these cases the only way to survive HCC is with a liver transplant.
Like many other liver diseases there is an established link to Herbalife supplements.  Correctly or not, doctors around the world hold the Herbalife company responsible for certain cases of HCC.  While the toxins in these products do not directly cause the cancer many doctors are confident that the regular use of Herbalife’s unsafe dietary, nutritional, and skin care products can lead to any number of primary liver diseases.  For example, if toxins in the Herbalife supplements cause non-alcoholic steatohepatits that eventually develops into hepatocellular carcinoma then it is not a very big leap to say Herbalife should be held accountable if what the lawsuit states is correct.

Herbalife Side Effects: Herbalife Liver Disease 


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 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 (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.
Jaundice: Can be a common sign of liver problems is Jaundice, unfortunately is is a possible herbalife side effect. Jaundice is the main symptom of Liver disease. It is known that the persistence of jaundice indicates that there is something very wrong with your gall bladder or liver. A clear symptom of  jaundice is, the color of your skin turns into pale yellow or orange. Even the white part of your eye can turn yellow.
Yang Jaundice — Thirst, Palpitations, constipation, urinary problem, abdominal distention as well as yellowing of tongue are the major symptoms of whole body jaundice in which the body color changes to somewhat like fresh tangerine color. According to the oriental medicine, this type of jaundice happens from excessive damp and moist heat.
Yin Jaundice — Your face, skin and eyes all turn yellow. Severe fever, nausea, poor appetite, lassitude, fatigue, abdominal distention, chest repression, loose stools, hypochondriac pain, cold hands and feet, palpitation, edema and breaking breath are all very common symptoms of Yin Jaundice.
Digestion & Appetite: A very common symptom of liver disease is drop in appetite that will eventually turn into weight loss. Then the situation can be worsened by incorrect metabolism of the carbohydrate, proteins and fat in the body. As the lawsuit states, if people continue to take herbalife the situation can become aggravated into Anemia with hepatocytes. This side effect can be vomiting, diarrhea and nausea this can hurt your body and cause you to be tired.  Blood is known to come  in vomit, this can be created by a gastric ulcer in your body.

Bloating & Distention: The abdominal part beneath the lower ribs on the right side may become distended because of the hepatomegaly or ascites. However, if the distention turns very severe then the breathing of the person might become more painful as there is pressure on the diaphragm.
  • Bloating is the feeling you get when your abdominal region is larger.
  • Distention is the actual “physical” finding that your abdominal area is larger than normal.
Polydypsia & Polyuria: This is excessive thirst and excessive and frequent urination, respectively. Although, these are common symptoms of many different types of diseases but in many liver diseases frequent drinking and urination is common.
If you have been taking a herbal supplement and are showing symptoms of health problems you should contact your doctor immediately. For example, the sudden appearance of abdominal fluid and swelling, jaundice yellow color of the skin, or muscle weakening. If you have any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately.
Below is a list of common symptoms of liver problems.
  • Abdominal pain in the upper right part of the stomach

Herbalife Side Effects: Herbalife Toxic Hepatitis

A Herbalife lawsuit states that the plaintiff suffered from a Herbalife side effect: Toxic hepatitis which is a inflammation of your liver in reaction to certain chemicals when someone is overexposed. Toxic hepatitis can be caused by alcohol, chemicals, drugs or supplements. In some cases, toxic hepatitis develops within hours or days of exposure to a toxin. In other cases, it may take months of regular use before signs and symptoms of toxic hepatitis appear. The symptoms of toxic hepatitis often go away when exposure to the toxin stops. Toxic hepatitis can permanently damage your liver, leading to irreversible scarring of liver tissue (cirrhosis) and in some cases to liver failure.
Mild forms of toxic hepatitis may not cause any symptoms and may be detected only by blood tests. When signs and symptoms of toxic hepatitis occur, they may include:
  • Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • Itching
  • Abdominal pain in the upper right portion of the abdomen
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Rash
  • Weight loss
  • Dark or tea-colored urine
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Coma

Herbalife Side Effects: Herbalife Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis or NASH

One concern is the potential connection between Herbalife supplements and a liver disease called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.  Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH is a common, often “silent” liver disease.  Medically, the disease is quite similar to alcoholic liver disease but occurs in people who drink little to no alcohol.  The 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.
The most dangerous aspect of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is its, lets say, discreet attack on the liver.  Most people with NASH feel well, and are symptom free, until the disease has progressed and caused long term damage to the liver.  The most common symptoms of NASH are:
  • Cirrhosis
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Weakness

If you or someone you know has non-alcoholic steatohepatitis also know as NASH and is taking a Herbalife supplement you may need to speak with an attorney. If your Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) is connected to using a Herbalife supplement you may be in tilted to damages. If you have a Herbalife lawsuit you should have the best lawyer you can find. RepresentYou.com can refer you to a lawyer with 20 years of experience who can take your product liability case on a contingency fee basis.

Herbalife and Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

Herbalife is one of the leading supplement distributors throughout the world.  Their products are sold in 75 countries but about 2.1 million independent distributors and have a strong hold on the weight loss, nutrition, and skin care industries.  They market their products relentlessly under the strength of the Herbalife brand and often recommend long term use of their supplements.  Unfortunately, a number of studies have suggested that the habitual use of a number of Herbalife products could possibly lead to liver damage.
One concern is the potential connection between Herbalife supplements and a liver disease called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.  Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH is a common, often “silent” liver disease.  Medically, the disease is quite similar to alcoholic liver disease but occurs in people who drink little to no alcohol.  The 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.
What Is NASH?
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH is a common, often “silent” liver disease. It resembles alcoholic liver disease, but occurs in people who drink little or no alcohol. The major feature in NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and damage. Most people with NASH feel well and are not aware that they have a liver problem. Nevertheless, NASH can be severe and can lead to cirrhosis, in which the liver is permanently damaged and scarred and no longer able to work properly.
NASH affects 2 to 5 percent of Americans. An additional 10 to 20 percent of Americans have fat in their liver, but no inflammation or liver damage, a condition called “fatty liver.” Although having fat in the liver is not normal, by itself it probably causes little harm or permanent damage. If fat is suspected based on blood test results or scans of the liver, this problem is called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). If a liver biopsy is performed in this case, it will show that some people have NASH while others have simple fatty liver.
Both NASH and NAFLD are becoming more common, possibly because of the greater number of Americans with obesity. In the past 10 years, the rate of obesity has doubled in adults and tripled in children. Obesity also contributes to diabetes and high blood cholesterol, which can further complicate the health of someone with NASH. Diabetes and high blood cholesterol are also becoming more common among Americans.

Symptoms of Nash

NASH is usually a silent disease with few or no symptoms. Patients generally feel well in the early stages and only begin to have symptoms—such as fatigue, weight loss, and weakness—once the disease is more advanced or cirrhosis develops. The progression of NASH can take years, even decades. The process can stop and, in some cases, reverse on its own without specific therapy. Or NASH can slowly worsen, causing scarring or “fibrosis” to appear and accumulate in the liver. As fibrosis worsens, cirrhosis develops; the liver becomes seriously scarred, hardened, and unable to function normally. Not every person with NASH develops cirrhosis, but once serious scarring or cirrhosis is present, few treatments can halt the progression. A person with cirrhosis experiences fluid retention, muscle wasting, bleeding from the intestines, and liver failure. Liver transplantation is the only treatment for advanced cirrhosis with liver failure, and transplantation is increasingly performed in people with NASH. NASH ranks as one of the major causes of cirrhosis in America, behind hepatitis C and alcoholic liver disease.

The most dangerous aspect of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is its, lets say, discreet attack on the liver.  Most people with NASH feel well, and are symptom free, until the disease has progressed and caused long term damage to the liver.  The most common symptoms of NASH are:
  • Cirrhosis
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Weakness

Herbalife and Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)

Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is primary liver cancer.  The disease is usually secondary to some preliminary and often untreated liver disease such as toxic hepatitis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.  Due to the dormant nature of these less serious liver ailments they are often unrecognized until they have attacked your liver and progressed into HCC.  hepatocellular carcinoma is one of, if not the, most developed and serious liver diseases.  More often than not it cannot be treated and eventually leads to complete liver failure.  In these cases the only way to survive HCC is with a liver transplant.
Like many other liver diseases there is an established link to Herbalife supplements.  Correctly or not, doctors around the world hold the Herbalife company responsible for certain cases of HCC.  While the toxins in these products do not directly cause the cancer many doctors are confident that the regular use of Herbalife’s unsafe dietary, nutritional, and skin care products can lead to any number of primary liver diseases.  For example, if toxins in the Herbalife supplements cause non-alcoholic steatohepatits that eventually develops into hepatocellular carcinoma then it is not a very big leap to say Herbalife should be held accountable.
