Hydroxycut Liver Failure: Signs & Symptoms
The liver is a vitally important organ that helps your body in many ways. It breaks down toxins, stores energy, and plays a role in the production of amino acids and lipids. It is also one of the most durable organs – a healthy liver has the ability to repair minor damage by re-growing tissue. Despite this impressive ability, Hydroxycut has actually been linked to many cases of liver damage or complete liver failure, causing at least one fatality as a result.
The early symptoms of liver failure are similar to symptoms of many other conditions. Because of this, liver failure may initially be difficult to diagnose. Some of the most common initial symptoms of liver failure are:
- Loss of appetite
As liver failure progresses, the symptoms become more serious. The most common symptoms of advanced liver failure include:
- Bleeding easily
- Swollen abdomen
- Mental disorientation or confusion
Sadly, Hydroxycut-induced liver damage is only treatable at its earlier stages. Once it has progressed past a certain point, medical workers can only try to salvage what is left. If this is not a viable option, the only potential treatment may be a liver transplant. These transplants are often successful, but the wait list for donated organs is very long. Tragically, not everyone is able to receive the help they need in time.
