I was diagnosed in March 2019 with cirrhosis, portal hypertension and thrombocytopenia. I'm not a drinker, but I have been obese for decades. Because of my arthritis, I took a lot of OTC pain relievers. My doctor put me on a low-carb diet, advised me to lose a LOT of weight (I started out at 335, and I'm now at 288, still trying to lose more), get more exercise, and have regular blood work to monitor my enzyme levels, etc. I don't feel sick, my bilirubin levels are normal, enzymes are still in the normal ranges, and I started swimming again. My doctor told me that the damage can't be reversed, but the goal is to slow down the progression of the disease and delay the need for a transplant.
