Hello SKRD1965 - I just wanted to say from me, please don't ever feel the need to apolgize here, I assume others agree?? I'm scared too and I'm new to the site (less than a month?) and I would NEVER intentionally hurt anyone and I'm not selfish either but I often feel I might be when I ask people for advice that might only be relavant to me. I just know that being new to this site sometimes it's hard for me to know if I'm out of line and I hope someone will tell me if I am so I can correct it for the future. Smile Ru

Thank you. My tears flow like a river at this point, I shall get a grip and be strong once again. I am just going to read the posts and try to learn and perhaps heal. The emotinial roller coaster is not much fun...I know you all agree. Big HUGS xoxoxox

Wow, I we all wish we could get reports. Sounds like a normal liver. Although tests are not always the final say, if I were the docs I'd be looking at other causes of high ammonia.

That's really great news SKRD1965...

Looks like you may be alive and kickin' for a few more decades after all!

Wish my labs looked like that.

I was just wondering how you all found out that you had Cirrhosis, was it via blood work, or biopsy? Also any feed backs on holistic health. Has anyone done any research on Resveratrol?

Excellent news SKRD. I wish I had those kind of labs and findings!! Smile

I first found out and was diagnosed with blood work and physical exam and then a biopsy confirmed staging of my illness.

As for holistic health I don't take any herbs as I am unsure what is safe and what isn't. Also I am unsure how well regulated some supplements are so I stick with eating healthy and avoiding (most of the time) red meat, anything white or processed or fried. I take multi vitimans but do not do herbal products other than organic green tea.

very good labs! I found out via abnormal labs, MRI, biopsy...in that order. I don't do holistic either, same reasons as SSS but I do use essential oils for some things. I use one for sleep, on for pain, and a couple different ones for cleansing the body.

Ultrasound first showed cirrhosis, followed by biopsy. I had abnormal labs for 15 years with early biopsies only showing fibrosis.
