Finally, 10 days after my sister died, I've come up to make this thread, to share what happened to my sister because of that damn pill.

She died on July 25, 2009, at the age of 25 due to liver failure because of Zhen De Shou Pills.

My sister took that pills last year for 3 consecutive months. She really lost her weight, a really big change. The problem was, she started to feel depressed and very not herself. When you talk to her, she's just spaced out. Simple questions that would have required simple answers too but her answers would always be, I don't know.

I was amazed of her weight loss. I asked her what she took. So she referred to me that slimming pills. I also took it. I started feeling different. I was so depressed when I have no problems that time. I started to think of many sad things. You will really lose weight because you will not have appetite to eat, will drink a lot of water, and worst of all, you're still awake at 4am even when you're so sleepy. After 3 days of taking it, I decided to stop. I told my sister not to take it because I was sure that these pills made her not herself.

Those pills were never taken for many months by my sister, until this tragic incident that took her life away. On July 20, 2009, we brought her to Metropolitan Hospital because of her stomach ache and she's vomitting even without food intake. She was diagnosed of liver failure. My sister then admitted that she recently took those pills for 10 days.

On the very first day she was confined, the doctors told us that my sister's condition was critical, very bad, and the only way that could save her was liver transplant. The possible cause would be that Zhen De Shou pills. The doctor said that when she took that pills last year, there would still be no effect. The effect came after her second time of intake.

After 6 days, she did not make it, she passed away, just because of that damn pills.

update ko lang yun napanood ko sa TV Patrol on Feb.10, 2010...

sa TV Patrol na mismo nanggaling na masama nga daw ang Zhen De Shou slimming pills, na ngayon pa lang, sa mga nag-take nun, magpatingin na...whether paminsan minsan lang ang pag-take, the fact na nakapag-take nun, masama na sa health natin yun, so better pacheck up na ngayon just to be sure, baka magulat na lang yun mga nakapagtake nun na after one year or so, pasira na ang liver, better safe lang than sorry...

Hindi lahat ng nagtetake ng Zhen De Shou ay nagkakaproblem, depende sa pagtanggap ng katawan mo yan. Better safe than sorry na lang sis. Yes that was 3 years ago, you'll never know that the effect might come like a traitor.

hmm, how sad..
dapat siguro iwas sa pag take ng mga kung ano-anong diet pills..

it is still the best to lose your weight in a natural way.

tama po, ok lang siguro kung mga BFAD approved, pero still no assurance pa rin yun, kaya it's better na may discipline nga sa sarili.

Marami ang bumibli pa rin nitong slimming pills na ito. Nakakapayat talaga kaso may mga side effects. Possible na sa iba walang side effects sa kanila, or possible rin na after a year or so, don pa lang nila makikita ang side effects. Kaya ingat na lang tayo sa pagbili ng mga medications or kung ano mang pills. Check first the content. Kung san gawa, kung BFAD approved ba yun. Check everything you need to know before taking any pills or medications. Better be sure than too late.

Buti na lang sis. Kasi hindi kagad agad makikita ang side effects nun. Possible sa iba ok sa kanila, kasi kaya ng katawan nila. Nakakabaliw ang Zhen De Shou. I personally took it for 3 days, madedepress ka talaga at hindi makakatulog. Gugustuhin nga natin pumayat kaso kung life natin ang at risk, wag na lang diba?

Sabi ko nga dapat maging wary tayo sa lahat ng tinetake natin.... ako nagreresearch muna ako tungkol sa 1 product and I read other forums and read the comments para i have substantial idea on what im taking... yung liver kasi is the recipient or tagasala ng lahat ng iniinom natin.... i've attended one MLM seminar and heard the speaker say that his friend who was the owner of one known hospital somewhere in Metro Manila admitted that one of the top 5 causes of death of the patients maybe at least in that hospital are complications or side effects from the medicines they were prescribed. Kaya Im a fan of alternative healing or health lifestyle.... maybe it's working for me kasi i feel half my age and I have no major ilness except food allergy which is manageable for me

I just wanna share this article from the net too...

Zhen De Shou - Caution On This Chinese Slimming Pills

by Angela
(Makati City, Philippines)

I was hospitalized because i had kidney infection due to one of the most popular chinese slimming pills, zhen de shou. My throat became fibrotic because of lightsome.



Zhen De Shou Review


Read the original
Zhen De Shou review here & see what others are saying

Maybe i really am addicted to the pills, and dying to be thin even if i witnessed the consequences. my sister's friend who had cyst in her mouth, and my friend who has the symptoms of leukemia.

EDITORS NOTE:
Angela, sorry for your troubles, i hope you get better soon. And please stop taking those pills.

You have just introduced me to this weight loss pill. So i did a quick research on it. Evidently Zhen De Shou is a capsule made of a very strong concoction of herbs. You only take one pill a day unlike many other weight loss pills, which makes it popular.

It has very strong appetite depressant abilities, keeping you from feeling hungry for a long time.It also has such strong laxative ablities that it can lead to vomiting of water. But be ware Laxatives for weight loss are always a very bad idea.

But even worse it has equally strong side effects. They include a burning pain in the stomach especially when you stop taking it. You will also experience dry throat and be continuously thirsty. Another side effect is severe headaches not to mention what Angela has noted above.

I found a blog post by The International Size Acceptance Association (ISAA) Philippines Chapter on Zhen De Shou here. There also been crack downs on the pill in China. Its considered among the top weight loss pills that can lead to death with continuous usage.

Bottom line beware of Zhen De Shou. It even contains the banned Ephedra.
