A woman receiving end-of-life hospice care took a turn for the worse not because she had cancer but due to the “excessive” amount of energy drinks she had recently consumed, a new case report finds. 

At first, the woman’s doctors at hospice care thought her unexpected medical problems “most likely stem[med] from progression of her cancer,” they wrote in the case report. But the medical team soon learned that because the illness had decreased her appetite, the woman had basically stopped eating and, instead, had been drinking five to six energy drinks a day for several weeks.
