Is it true that kratom actually damages liver?
Hi guys, been wondering this for a while, and I've been reading quite a number of "scientific" articles. but only to put me in deeper confusion. some say it does, some say it doesn't. So what do you guys think? How long have you used kratom and do you experience any liver issues as a result of kratom consumption?
I have not experienced any issues with my liver.
I did go a basic Google search and did not see anything that was any real scientific support for that statement. Well mabe I should say for that rumor
I would guess it is not as bad as high consumption of Alcohol consumption.
Coulda swore I already seen this question AND posted some comments. Phooey
I have heard of the RARE liver damage thing that is supposedly true. It doesn’t seem unreasonable for rare problems. Not everyone can tolerate ingesting plant material or products made solely with it.
Definitely be wary of products having OTHER STUFF in them! I don’t trust some of the shots out there-as being kratom but rather probably have kratom in them. Buyer beware.
Seen it discussed on Reddit somewhere a good while ago.
Some folks have hair fall out and have to discontinue use. Varying degrees of how much hair, etc. Seen people on Facebook discussing that. Apparently it is an issue for some folks but quitting for a while and then trying again things were fine for some. I dunno 🤷🏼♀️.
Ingesting plant material is really subject to nature and vendors are having it tested now, so safety FIRST.
These forums are not for replacing medical care and I would like to suggest maybe get your physician to check you out every six months AT LEAST. Sooner if health issues warrant.
Speaking of health management, DON’T just show up at Dr offices for covid concerns. It’s recommended you CALL for treatment instructions and information. Where I live.
More and more misinformation is way beyond ridiculous. Use common sense because it’s your best source for truth.
Have a wee bit better day!
@jordan-borneohale , in the almost 6 years I’ve been taking kratom daily , several times a day …. I haven’t experienced any symptoms of liver issues…. Like @laurie said … anything is possible , and it may have been noted in rare cases … extremely rare cases … my intuition/ take on it is there may be some who already have liver issues and cannot tolerate certain substances, and or are already on certain meds the lends to sensitive or predisposed for problems with the liver . Not giving medical advice , only my thoughts on the matter ..
The fact that I’ve only read or heard about 1-2 cases of this happening in the first 2-3 weeks of reg kratom use , and that these liver issues go away fast once stopping kratom consumption tells me this is extremely rare and not a devastating threat as long as one experiencing symptoms stops taking this herb . Considering the millions of folks utilizing kratom regularly … this is something that 99.99999% of folks will likely never encounter . Some folks can’t eat certain things … peanuts, gluten … I’m sure there are some that just can’t process kratom effectively and can lend to issues. Again .. so rare ! Just my 2 cents on the post topic !!
Side note - Happy Father’s Day to all you kratom papas out there 🙏🍃❤️
