Hoodia Gordonii, a herbal treatment from South Africa, is sold as an appetite supressant.  The herb also appears to affect thirst which can lead to dehydration.  There is speculation that it can affect liver function.  Studies show that it may be harmful for diabetics.  One theory is that it tricks the brain into thinking blood sugar levels are normal but in reality actually low.
