The FDA, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Hawaii Department of Healthimage (DOH), are investigating a growing number of reports of acute non-viral hepatitis in Hawaii. The Hawaii DOH has reported that 24 of these cases share a common link to a dietary supplement product labeled as OxyElite Pro.

There have been 29 cases of acute non-viral hepatitis with an unknown cause identified in the state of Hawaii.  Eleven of the 29 cases have been hospitalized with acute hepatitis, two cases have received liver transplants and one person has died. CDC is also looking at other cases of liver injury nationwide that may be related. Symptoms of all types of hepatitis are similar and can include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay or gray-colored bowel movements, joint painimage, yellow eyes, and jaundice.

Additionally, the FDA is inspecting the facilities involved in manufacturing the product and reviewing production and product distribution records. Because USPlabs LLC has informed FDA that it believes counterfeit versions of OxyElite Pro are being marketed in the US and have been on the US market for some time, FDA is also investigating whether counterfeit product is related to any of the cases of acute  hepatitis.RECOMMENDATION: The FDA advises consumers to stop using any dietary supplement product labeled as OxyElite Pro while the investigation continues. Consumers who believe they have been harmed by using a dietary supplement should contact their health careimage practitioner.

FDA ALERT/OxyElite Pro

True Quasar.  Just an example: My new doctor (our doctor retired 6mos or so ago) insisted I try cholesterol drugs again because my cholesterol was so high. I had told him they affected my legs to where I could not walk at times. So he decided there was another one I hadn't tried. Foolishly I gave it. Within 5 days I had tremendous pain (which I had never had. Not only in legs but in hip joints. I stopped them immediately as my sports med doctor said he would send a notice to the other doctor, as they are supposed to do. His PA suggested I take red yeast rice and I know many that do and it seems to lower cholesterol for many. I bought some at a trusted pharmacy but checked with the FDA. Lo and behold, 2 brands were adding ZOCOR and, of course, they were having great success in lowering cholesterol. I read the letters from a year ago and just lately where they had told the companies they were not putting the info in the ingredients area and to remove them from the market.

Can you imagine? Here I was hoping that when I stopped the NSAID's that the damage would be reversed and found a product in my trusted health food store had a "trusted" product that was feeding me the same thing that caused my problems. I had only taken 2 pills before I had enough sense to double check.  Right now I am taking antibiotics for another problem and taking pro biotics to keep the good bacteria going *G* and it is slower but  pro biotics do slowly lower cholesterol. Live and learn I guess but sometimes I wonder if I am just living and not learning fast enough.image

Deadly deception No.4: Taking statin drugs

Sorry to learn about the problems you have been having with the deceptive AMA practice of using cholesterol to to frighten people about their heart condition.  I think you might find the following reliable source of interest to you.  Do keep well!

God Bless you sis!

Deadly Deception No. 4:
 Taking statin drugs 
to reduce high cholesterol will greatly 
reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.NOT ALWAYS SO!For the past 20 years, the heart industry has made high cholesterol the “demon” behind heart attacks and strokes.And their tactics have worked. More than 13 million American take cholesterol-lowering statin drugs—and more than $22 billion a year is spent worldwide on these drugs, with the bulk of sales in the United States.Cholesterol-lowering drugs based on 
flawed study!Did you know the $10 billion-a-year sales of Lipitor® for lowering your cholesterol is based on a flawed study. The claim that high cholesterol can cause atherosclerosis is based on only 14 percent of actual patients studied. Learn more on page 28 of A Doctor's Treasury of Hushed-Up Natural Heart Cures and Deadly Deceptions of Popular Heart Treatments. Get it now!In addition, a new study touting statins protecting people with normal cholesterol from heart attack and strokes should send statin sales through the roof!What's more, food manufacturers have jumped on the “lower cholesterol” bandwagon, touting healthy foods with “no cholesterol”... or “cholesterol lowering”.But you're only hearing half the story!What big drug companies and food makersdon't want you to know is...

  • Nearly HALF of all heart attack victims have completely normal cholesterol,
  • 16 clinical trials prove that the effect of diet on your cholesterol is minimal at most, lowering your cholesterol by only 2 to 4 percent,
  • Statin drugs do lower cholesterol, but they also deplete your body of CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10)... and without enough CoQ10, your heart may fail!
  • Cholesterol is a vitally important substance which is needed to build our cells' membranes and produce several key hormones. If cholesterol drops too low, you're actually at risk of depression, saysPsychomatic Medicine!
So what's the real cholesterol story?New research reveals that low levels of HDL “good” cholesterol put you at even greater risk for heart attack or stroke than high LDL cholesterol levels.The "plain jane" vegetable extract 
that lowers your triglycerides by 
26 percent!White bean extract may sound boring. But according to Alternative Medical Review, this extract can slash your triglyceride level by 26 mg/dL! How important it this? Get its name on page 48 of A Doctor's Treasury of Hushed-Up Natural Heart Cures and Deadly Deceptions of Popular Heart Treatments. Order now...In fact, a Harvard Medical School study found that the ratio of low HDL cholesterol andhigh triglycerides is the strongest predictor of heart attack, even more accurate than the LDL/HDL ratio.The same study states that people with the highest ratio of triglycerides to HDL cholesterol have a heart attack risk that's 16 TIMES HIGHER than those with the lowest ratio!Yet statin drugs do NOTHING to raise HDL “good” cholesterol or lower triglycerides!In your Special Medical Briefing Report, A Doctor's Treasury of Hushed-Up Natural Heart Cures and Deadly Deceptions of Popular Heart Treatments, you'll discover...
  • A heart-attack-waiting-to-happen because of too much... sugar! The average American consumes 32 teaspoons of sugar a day, and it can cause your triglycerides and heart attack risk to soar, page 15.
  • The vitamin powerhouse that raises your protective HDL cholesterol by up to 35 percent (that's good news) and lowers your LDL cholesterol by 25 percent, page 46.
  • Lifesaving, heart-saving triple play! The natural breakthrough from India that lowers triglycerides by 12 percent, LDL cholesterol by 12.5 percent and total cholesterol by 11.7 percent, page 47. 
  • Clobber high triglycerides! In one study of 533 patients, an extract from this prized medicinal plant slashed triglycerides. Bonus—lowered cholesterol, too, page 49.
  • Why the Chinese rarely fear heart attacks.Their secret can lower your cholesterol 76 points without drugs or supplements! Page 16.
  • Surprising “Lemonade Cleanse” lowers high blood pressure like crazy. Recipe, page 34.

Quasar, thank you for taking the time to post this article. Cymbalta is another med that depletes the CoQ10. I take that daily because the sports med doctor is adamant about taking CoQ10.  I seem to be healthy except for the cholesterol and triglyceride problem. Blood pressure had always been good until this last year and when there is no stress it stays low. Love to you in the Lord today Quasar and stay warm. It is 29 here this morning with chill factor of 20. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Romans 1:17, For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written:"The righteous will live by faith."

Indeed it is cold all right!  It has been in the 20s here as well.  In fact, I cancelled my usual shopping day to await a warmer morning because of it.  Do you have a good blood pressure device to monitor your own BP?  I'm sure you know that it will vary in all of us, depending on what time of day, what we have been doing, such as eating, house cleaning, or whatever.  I have been checking my own  now for  more than 10 years, keeping a recorded log, usually about the same time of day each time, or always after I am completely rested.  Doctors can jockey a person around about their BP, that is only too frequently misleading, in order to keep people on medication they often times do not need.  My BP goes up high as soon as I get in the car to drive anywhere, for example, because of the tenseness of defensive driving that I do.  You are in my ongoing prayers, for the Lord to keep you safe and in the best possible health.

God bless!
