Don't Drink Excessive Energy Drinks. It May Cause Hepatitis

A non-identified construction worker entered an emergency room due to abdominal pain, lack of appetite, vomiting and nausea believing are just symptoms of flu was alarmed when his urine turned a dark color and his skin as well as eyes yellowed.

The report added the man who worked long, labor-intensive days had signs of hepatitis.

Ahead of all such health hazards he was in good health and didn’t use to consume alcohol, illicit drugs or tobacco.

University of Florida College of Medicine researchers said the worker didn’t change his diet in recent weeks and even didn’t take prescription medications.

However, the 50-year-old had received a tattoo when he was in his 20s.

The report adds the man never had blood transmission and has no family history of liver disease too.

The researchers found the man drank four or five energy drinks a day for about three weeks before entering the emergency room.

Laboratory test report points out the worker had an underlying chronic hepatitis C, or HCV, infection. His blood contained HCV antibodies.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said HCV is a viral infection causing liver inflammation and in up to 85 percent HCV cases it becomes chronic HCV.
