We just flew in to Arizona for my checkup on Monday and returned Monday evening. Quick visit. I was told I am fine. MY last three years my blood work is almost identical, Dr. quite did't understand my encepalopathy issue, because my ammonia level was lower than ever. My brain was working fine on Monday. So I guess lactulose and xifaxan are doing their job. Dr. just said I should continue taking my meds the same way.
I was also told they could not treat my arthritis which is a big problem. I can only take tylenol 2 a day. Well I don't believe I should take any, since it is so had on the liver. I am still not diagnosed , right now they are just saying it is similar to fatty liver disease. I also lost 20 Lb. this year , I did it for me but it would be nice if someone would have noticed. My BP did come down.
enough of me lavenday

hi Lavendar,
Your latest dr visit sounds great. Are you being treated at a transplant clinic?

your dr says,"similar to fatty liver". You have lost 20 pounds this year and your BP is down, and ammonia levels have dropped. that is fantastic. it could be fatty liver..

What did you change to lose the weight. keep it up.

I bet your husband has noticed your weight loss..
all the best to you

Yes. I am being treated at a transplant clinic. My weight loss was yet another choice I made. I just eat what I think is right . Drink plenty of water. And never eat unless I am really hungry. I think my weight is fine now. Just need to maintain it now. And NO my husband didn't notice. Or pretends not to notice. I did it for me .

Thanks for the response ppm guy. smilewinkgrin smilewinkgrin
