OxyElite Pro linked to non-viral hepatitis

At least 24 people in Hawaii have developed acute non-viral hepatitis after using the dietary supplement OxyElite Pro, marketed for use in weight loss and muscle building. Additionally, two patients have received liver transplants, and one patient died, but it is not clear whether they took OxyElite Pro or a different dietary supplement.

The cases (median age, 33) all lived in Hawaii, but the CDC is investigating whether there are cases of liver injury elsewhere, since the supplement is sold nationwide. The FDA advises consumers to stop using OxyElite Pro during the investigation.
Bottom line:  Dr. Fiala does not recommend OxyElite Pro or similar non-FDA approved dietary supplements to his patients.
