Hydroxycut Recall - One Death and 23 Reports of Health Damage

If you are taking Hydroxycut, you must stop. There have been 23 reports of health problems to the FDA from this product, including one death. Hydroxycut is commonly taken for quick weight-loss and toned-looking muscles.

The reported health damages from Hydroxycut include liver damage requiring liver transplant. (Symptoms of liver damage include yellowing of skin and eye-whites, brown urine, nausea, vomiting, light colored stools, fatigue, weakness, abdominal pain, itching, and appetite loss.) Other reported health problems from this product include seizures, cardiovascular disorders, and rhabdomyolysis (muscle damage that may lead to kidney failure)

It's funny that someone asked me a month ago about this product. As with all quick-fix diet pills, I recommended against it. I also referred her to my published article a few months ago about staying away from quick-fix diet pills in general.
