Michigan reports first death from vaping-related lung injury

Michigan's health department has confirmed the state's first death caused by a vaping-related injury.

That count does not include the MI death, according to MDHHS.

"We are saddened to announce a death associated with this outbreak", said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health for MDHHS. No other information about the individual will be released due to confidentiality reasons.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers to stop using THC vaping products as investigations into vaping-related lung injuries and deaths continue.

At least 18 vaping-related deaths have been confirmed south of the border, and more than 1,000 cases are being looked at all over the U.S.

The age range in these cases is 16-67. This includes 18 deaths from 15 states, but this count does not include the MI death and several deaths in other states reported to CDC after October 1.

About 75% of those cases are related to marijuana products.

Health officials urge anyone who vapes to seek medical attention if they experience shortness of breath, chest pain, cough, fever, nausea or vomiting.

So far, there has not been a particular e-cigarette, vaping device, liquid, or ingredient linked to the outbreak.

"Additionally, consumers who choose to use any vaping products should not modify or add any substances such as THC or other oils to products purchased in stores and should not purchase any vaping products, including those containing THC, off the street or from other illicit channels", he said, adding that "according to recent findings, most of the patients impacted by these illnesses reported using THC-containing products, suggesting THC products are playing a role in the these illnesses".

The ban prevents the sales of flavored vape products, and was set forth by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

- Youth, young adults and pregnant women should avoid vaping and e-cigarettes.

Adults who do not now use tobacco products should not start using e-cigarette products.

- Anyone vaping should not start smoking cigarettes as a replacement for nicotine. Free help is available for individuals who are ready to kick the tobacco habit at 800-QUIT-NOW (800-784-8669).
