This case study is about one product used locally as a dietary supplement, and was marketed for weight loss, muscle building, lead to several health complications in one user, who presented with renal impairment and also describes about several conventional and advanced analytical techniques used to detect and identify amphetamine-like adulterants in the dietary supplement.
