NO Xplode Warning
This may not be the right place for this, it probably should be in the supplement section, but I don’t believe I have enough posts to post elsewhere. Moderators, please move it if necessary. Anyway, I wanted to advise you of what may have been my reaction to NO Xplode because I see guys talking about it on various threads.
Two weeks ago Tuesday, I took a dose of it prior to doing my PE. Started feeling ill at work around 4 pm, my kidney area was a bit achy and my stomach just felt bloated. I assumed that I was coming down with food poison or from eating pasta that was 2 days old. Went home and hit another dose. Woke up in the night was a fever and back pain in my kidney area. Figured it was food poisoning, stayed home and tried to let it run it’s course. My fever broke Thursday night, wake up Friday, kidneys just as achy with a slight burning sensation. Go to take the morning pee, it looked like someone poured a can of Coke into my toilet. This wasn’t the usual morning dark urine, it was really dark. I jump on the Internet, seems like I was pissing blood and it was probably a urinary tract infection. Tried dosing it out with cranberry juice, but the ache just kept getting worse. Coming from a family of diabetics, some on dialysis, I’m really concerned with any kidney pain.
Go to the hospital around 7 p.m. Based on what I was saying and my physique, the doctor was convinced I had hurt myself weight lifting. Anyway, about 10 p.m. He comes running in and tells me I have hepatitis, my liver function is elevated and the stuff in my urine isn’t blood, it’s bilirubin, a digestive enzyme used to digest fats. You should have zero bilirubin in your blood. They wanted to keep me overnight to monitor me because of how elevated my liver function was. They also needed to figure out if it as hepatitis A, B, or C, C being the STD. Needless to say, this was a sleepness night hoping that it was from an undercooked slab of tuna and not from the last chick I hooked up with.
Twelve hours later, 3 IV bags, while peeing brown liquid every 2 hours from the IV, having the squats in a public hospital restroom, 5 blood draws and my kidneys stilling aching, the nurse tells me the good thing is, it’s not viral hepatitis, the bad news is, they don’t know what is causing it. I get discharged with instructions to come back to the doctor’s office on Wednesday for a follow up blood test. Now I’m just as freaked because that means 3 possible things, a gall stone, cirrhosis or liver cancer. My kidneys were still aching that Sunday. I had tossed the NO Xplode when I got home on Saturday. I ate some chowder and the pain went away about an hour later. Then it came back. I thought the the milk the in the chowder, and decided to take a look at the label for the NO Xplode online.
Turns out the stuff based on the dose it said to take was 4000% of the daily RDA for vitamin B12. Digging around a bit more, it seems that B12 is composed of cobalt. Cobalt poisoning results in overproduction of red blood cells. The liver destroys old red blood cells to make bilirubin. So my thinking is that the B12 in the NO Xplode made my body go insane and over produce red blood cells which my liver was trying to get rid of. I was worried about the effect of my kidneys, so I decided to eat as much fat as a could because of what the emergency room doctor said about bilirubin being used to digest fat. That totally helped, and if I went too long between fat meals, I could feel the ache come back. Went for the blood test last Wednesday, the doctor still hasn’t returned my calls with the results, so I can’t even run my theory by him. My urine was still getting dark and my kidneys would hurt up until Saturday unless I kept eating fat. Today is 12 days since I last took it and I finally feel like my strength is beginning to come back.
I could be completely wrong and it wasn’t the NO Xplode, but I want you guys to be aware of this, and the fact that it contains an incredibly high amount of vitamin B12. I will call the doctor office again tomorrow for the 4th time and see if they have my blood test results.
