“Herbalife gave me Thyroditis”

Written on: 02/12/2012 by desgirl (1 review written)

I used herbalife for a few months and I lost a few pounds but it made me sick and developed thyroditis. Then it made me gain 15 pounds and changed my metabolism for worse. The worse product ever and dangerous.
be careful if you are thinking about using this. It contains a large amount of Iodine that affect the Thyroid gland. Talk to you doctor about it.

you say you developed thyroditis but I just discovered that the causes of this are:
Causes[edit]

Thyroiditis is generally caused by an attack on the thyroid, resulting in inflammation and damage to the thyroid cells. This disease is often considered a malfunction of the immune system. Antibodies that attack the thyroid are what causes most types of thyroiditis. It can also be caused by an infection, like a virus or bacteria, which works in the same way as antibodies to cause inflammation in the glands.[4] Certain people make thyroid antibodies, and thyroiditis can be considered an autoimmune disease, because the body acts as if the thyroid gland is foreign tissue.[5] Some drugs, such as interferon and amiodarone, can also cause Thyroiditis hyroiditis because they have a tendency to damage thyroid cells.

and infact to much iodine can cause hypothyroidism which is an under active thyroid which you are explaining in the above text yet you say its Thyroiditis (not even specifying what type it is) which is just a simple infection .
Is there a reason behind this ?
Or is it simply just an attack on herbalife due to being in a rival company?
Also Ive done some research into the amount of iodine in Herbalife its a good amount compared to an unhealthy diet of salt produce or infact a to low amount of eating healthy. Can you explain this to please?

Missnjo's great research. I honestly believe it's a lie or they want to make themselves feel better for not continuing with the products because the great customer service I've received plus contact from this website has been very helpful including products.

Your are so dramatic honestly I think it's something else, look at how many people use the products just because you decided to give up don't discourage others
