What’s the problem?

Sadly, obesity is a growing problem around the country to the point where many officials are beginning to label it as a public health issue. Such monikers are usually reserved for diseases such as cancer and HIV, but the country is overweight, and many people are working to burn off the extra pounds and avoid the potential problems that come with this extra weight. This is where the Hydroxycut products have come into play.

What is Hydroxycut?

Hydroxycut is the brand name of some of the top-selling weight loss products in America. Made by Iovate Health Sciences, Hydroxycut products are marketed as:

  • Fat burners
  • Energy enhancers
  • Low carb diet aids
  • Weight loss supplements
  • Water loss supplements

The problems associated with Hydroxycut are growing in number, and to date at least 23 people who have used them have reported serious side effects. One person has tragically died after using them. Specifically, the relatively less dangerous side effects include:

  • Seizures from Hydroxycut
  • Hydroxycut liver failure
  • Liver damage
  • Elevated liver enzymes
  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Kidney failure
  • Rhabdomyolysis from Hydroxycut

Unfortunately, as serious as these side effects are, they are not the most dangerous ones associated with this product line. The more serious side effects include several different types of liver damage – including jaundice and raised levels of enzymes in the liver – which can lead to irreparable liver damage and ultimately the need for a liver transplant.
