  • Abdominal pain: A condition which is characterized by the sensation of pain that is located in the abdomen
  • Chemical-related conditions: Medical conditions related to chemicals and toxin exposures.
  • Cholestyramine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Cholestyramine (cholesterol-lowering drug) during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Diarrhea: Loose or watery stool.
  • Hepatotoxicity: Damage or injury to the liver caused by a drug, chemical or other agent. Symptoms vary depending on the degree of exposure and hence extent of the liver damage or injury. Mild liver damage may cause few if any symptoms whereas severe damage can ultimately result in liver failure.
  • Liver conditions: Any condition that affects the liver
  • Liver failure: Acute liver failure (ALF) is an uncommon condition in which the rapid deterioration of liver function results in coagulopathy and alteration in the mental status of a previously healthy individual.
  • Nausea: The queasy feeling of nausea and often also vomiting.
  • No symptoms: The absence of noticable symptoms.
  • Occupational liver damage -- Whole body vibration: Damage or injury to the liver caused by whole body vibration in an occupational setting. This often occurs when operating equipment which cause constant physical vibration such as occurs when driving off-road vehicles or forklifts. Often other organs and tissues are also affected but only the liver toxicity symptoms are listed below. Symptoms vary depending on the degree of exposure and hence extent of the liver damage or injury. Mild liver damage may cause few if any symptoms whereas severe damage can ultimately result in liver failure. Symptoms may be acute, subacute or chronic depending on the severity of the exposure. Factors such as age, race, gender, overall health and underlying liver problems may also influence a person's risk of developing liver problems and the severity of the symptoms. Occupational liver damage is considered relatively uncommon due to current safe industrial practices.
  • Poisoning, overdose or adverse reactions: Medical conditions related to poisons, drug overdosage, or drug adverse reactions.
  • Poor appetite: Loss or reduction in appetite for food
  • Tiredness: Feeling tired either physically or mentally
  • Ursodeoxycholic Acid -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Ursodeoxycholic Acid during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Vomiting: Vomiting or retching symptoms.
  • Weakness: Symptoms causing weakness of the body
