Limbrel linked to Liver Injury

Medical Malpractice | January 23, 2018

Osteoarthritis affects roughly 30 million Americans a year. This type of arthritis is also known as wear & tear arthritis. It often occurs in the weight-bearing joints of the body such as hips, knees, and spines.

The cartilage that is typically elastic in the joint solidifies, making it easier for the cartilage to chip away due to the friction of said joint.

This creates extreme pain for the person suffering from the disorder which ultimately leads to a pursuit of pain relief.

Which brings us to the medical food product that has been in the news lately, “Limbrel”. Limbrel decreases swelling around joint areas and reduces pain caused from Osteoarthritis but as of late the FDA has recalled the product due to it being linked to a large number of complaints regarding drug-induced liver injury and a lung condition by the name of “hypersensitivity pneumonitis“.

The medical food product has been around for 13 years. The FDA heavily advises that anybody that is currently taking Limbrel should stop immediately and contact their healthcare provider to ensure that the party has not suffered from any of the life-threatening injury’s listed above.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury from taking Limbrel and have accrued substantial medical expenses as a result, please do not hesitate to contact the law offices of Hendy Johnson Vaughn Emery.
