I read this the kratom-related hepatitis symptom report on erowid: nlogn. 'Kratom-Induced Hepatitis?: experience with Kratom (ID 88678)'. Erowid.org. Mar 7, 2011. erowid.org/exp/88678
I had nearly the same experience she did.
I took kratom 4-10 Tablespoons per day for a whole week while working. All of a sudden I lost appetite and then started feeling sick. I thought I had the stomach flu as I had those symptoms. But I went to the doctor and they did a blood test. My liver enzymes were very very high. My feces were pale too and my skin was jaundiced.
I was sent to a gastrologist who prescribed me Ursodiol, saying I had a blocked bile passage. My gastrologist told me most likely caused by the kratom. I had a liver biopsy and the diagnosed the blockage of the bile duct caused by a unknown substance. That was most likely kraton.
When i stopped kratom things started going back to normal, but it took a month and half for my the jaundice to go away and my appetite recover. I had taken way higher doses than what you'd read online. After I started on the Ursodiol, I recovered really fast. I am much better but still recovering. My doctors say I have no permanent liver damage/inflation. All my many blood tests I have been taking constantly came out showing nothing but high liver enzymes, I have no viral hepatitis A, B, or C.
