    Kybella

    Is there any information out there that exists about Kybella injection (deoxycholic acid) and breastfeeding?

    Kybella is just the bile salt created in the gall bladder every day.

    I don't think it would harm a breastfeeding baby as long as the levels are not too high, or the area treated too large.

    Best to wait after breastfeeding for this therapy.

    Below is from wikipedia.

    Deoxycholic acid (conjugate base ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conjugate_acid[/url]) deoxycholate), also known as cholanoic acid, Kybella, Celluform Plus, Belkyra, and 3α,12α-dihydroxy-5β-cholan-24-oic acid, is a bile acid ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bile_acid[/url]). Deoxycholic acid is one of the secondary bile acids, which are metabolic byproducts of intestinal bacteria. The two primary bile acids secreted by the liver are cholic acid ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholic_acid[/url]) and chenodeoxycholic acid ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chenodeoxycholic_acid[/url]). Bacteria metabolize chenodeoxycholic acid into the secondary bile acid lithocholic acid ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithocholic_acid[/url]), and they metabolize cholic acid into deoxycholic acid. There are additional secondary bile acids, such as ursodeoxycholic acid ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursodeoxycholic_acid[/url]). Deoxycholic acid is soluble in alcohol ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol[/url]) and acetic acid ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acetic_acid[/url]). When pure, it comes in a white to off-white crystalline powder form
