Garlic supplements ‘strongly’ linked to severe haematuria after simple procedure: case 

The patient took up to six capsules daily along with large amounts of the bulb in his Mediterranean diet, UK doctors report.

Doctors have reported how one unlucky patient’s use of garlic supplements and love of the pungent bulb led to severe haematuria following an otherwise safe and minimally invasive procedure.

UK doctors say the 65-year-old man underwent an elective green light laser photovaporisation of the prostate after cystoscopy detected signs of bladder outlet occlusion.
