Chinese woman narrowly escapes death after home-made IV drip … of fruit juice

Woman nearly dies after injecting fruit juices into veins

However, if Zeng actually prepared the IV line herself, others wondered how she had missed the fact that fruit juice can never be for the veins.

A Chinese woman nearly dies after she injected a fruit smoothie into her veins with the hopes of staying healthy.

The Chinese woman said that her body temperature started to rise and her body was really itchy after she injected the smoothie in her veins. She did nothing about her symptoms though.

While it's not recommended that you inject yourself with fruit juice, the practice of juicing (skipping entire meals and only consuming fruit juice) has become increasingly popular over the years.

She suffered damage to her liver, kidney, heart and lungs and spent five days in intensive care.

Zeng was rushed to the hospital, where she was admitted to intensive care.

The 51-year-old woman only identified as Zeng was reported to have an interest in unusual health treatments, as per Xiaoxing Morning Herald via South China Morning Post on Monday, March 18. Feng tried to keep it a secret but her husband could see that she was in distress and eventually convinced her to go to hospital.

She was administered dialysis to clean her blood and put on antibiotics and injected with clotting agents.

Zeng almost died of sepsis, or systemic infection, and consequently, multiple organ failure. Despite infection and damage to the vital organs, her condition improved significantly after five days. Pictured a glass of orange juice.

"I thought fresh fruit juice is nutritious, and therefore, there's no harm injecting it on the body", she told reporters this week.
