Anyone With Gallbladder Issues Been on Nutrisystems Recently?
This shows that Nutrisystem has drastically fallen in terms of focusing on customer needs and flat out refuses to deal ethically with the customer.

They alleged that they contracted gall bladder disease while using the company's products. But he said Kirkham's suit is the first in the country to seek a court's designation as a class action against Nutri-System on behalf of an untold number of potential plaintiffs.

The suit seeks to include anyone who used Nutri-System since the company was founded July 18, , and who later contracted gall bladder disease, Marlin said. He said he has been approached by nine people seeking to join the suit since it was filed Friday. Marlin said Kirkham began using Nutri-System in December to try to trim her weight from to But one night in February while watching television, Kirkham suffered stabbing abdominal pains, Marlin said.

Believing she was just feeling stress, she took Tylenol and went to bed, and the pains were gone by morning, he said. In early April, Kirkham suffered another bout with abdominal pain, which again subsided after she took pain killers and went to bed for the night, he said. Then June 12, abdominal pains struck again, leaving Kirkham doubled over on the floor of her home, unable to stand, Marlin said.

On June 22, Kirkham was admitted to Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, where doctors removed her gall bladder, including a gallstone the diameter of a quarter, Marlin said.

To blame it on Nutrisystem specifically is probably a bit weak. Some specialized weight loss clinics will give patients a prescription for Ursodiol in order to try and prevent gallbladder problems. True - too much or too little fat in a diet are both bad for your gb. Also, NutriSystems - along with some other diet plans - do not distinguish among types of fat. And the original lawsuit was some 20 years ago. I think it was about 3 years ago. I'll have to check.
