Hydroxycut Diet Supplements
Hydroxycut is manufactured by lovate Health Sciences Inc., of Oakville,
Ontario and is distributed by lovate Health Sciences USA Inc. of Blasdell, N.Y. Hydroxycut products are dietary supplements that are marketed for weight-loss, as fat burners, as energy-enhancers, as low carb diet aids, and for water loss. Advertised as made from natural ingredients, because Hydroxycut is a dietary supplement, its manufacturers are not required to seek FDA approval. Currently, Hydroxycut accounts for almost 90 percent of the market for weight loss supplements, selling around 1 million bottles a year. Accordingly, there is the potential for a larger number of Hydroxycut lawsuits alleging Hydroxycut liver damage. Bernstein Liebhard is investigating hydroxycut lawsuits against Health Sciences.

Additionally, the FDA has also received reports of other Hydroxycut side effects, including seizures, cardiovascular disorders and rhabdomyolysis. Symptoms of Hydroxycut liver damage include jaundice, brown urine, nausea, vomiting, light-colored stools, excessive fatigue, weakness, stomach or abdominal pain, itching and loss of appetite.
