Weight Loss Supplements Linked to Liver Failure

A healthy 35-year-old woman who took 3 Saba ACE diet pills within 2 days developed liver failure and needed a liver transplant, according to a May 2014 report published in the journal Gastroenterology [1].

Within 2 weeks of taking the supplements, the woman developed jaundice. Her condition worsened, and a week later she suffered from leg swelling and an accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity called ascites. Eight weeks after the appearance of her first symptoms, the woman was diagnosed with liver failure requiring the need for a transplant.

“In summary, this case of drug-induced fulminant liver failure was likely due to Saba ACE supplement,” the report said.

Before she was admitted to the hospital in September 2013, the woman also reported taking the antidepressant Zoloft (generic: sertraline) and birth control pills for 3 years. It is not clear which ingredient in the Saba ACE supplement may have led to her liver failure, or whether her condition was caused by drug interaction or possible contamination of the supplement, according to the report.

Diet Pill Contained DMAA, Green Tea Extract: Report

The formula of the ACE diet pill the woman took contained dimethylamylamine, or DMAA, a controversial supplement linked to seizures, heart damage, kidney/liver failure, and death. In April 2013, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) sent warning letters [2] to 11 companies warning them to remove DMAA supplements from the market.

“DMAA-containing dietary supplements are illegal and their marketing violates the law,” the agency said.

In response to the FDA’s request, Saba’s manufacturer announced in Fall 2013 that it had removed DMAA from the ACE supplement ingredients list. DMAA is not listed as an ingredient in the formulation of the Saba ACE diet pill that is currently on the market.

The Saba supplement the liver failure patient used also included green tea extract, which has been associated with “several cases of liver injury, with two cases of fulminant liver failure requiring transplantation,” according to the report.

The new, non-DMAA version of the ACE diet pill includes green tea extract, caffeine, green coffee bean extract, garcinia cambogia, konjac root and L-carnitine and other ingredients, according to the product’s labeling.

This case highlights the increasing concern regarding the safety of diet supplements,” the researchers said. “Despite this [FDA] warning, these products are still currently available for consumption
