DEPENDS: First, find the cause! cirrhosis of the liver means scarring, and can be caused by many things. Treatment varies bc of this. Infections, usually viral, like hepatitis b and c can do it, as can some metabolic disorders that can be inherited. Toxins are also a common reason, and usually this is from alcohol. Most of all, prevent any further damage, since it is not reversible.

Yes: There are many meds that treat migraines. While some are not recommended during pregnancy, many others are acceptable. You need to check with you doctor to determine whether the specific meds you use will be okay, or whether you will need to use a different med during your pregnancy. Good luck with your pregnancy!

DRINK WATER: The best way to avoid crystals in your urine, which are the building blocks of stones, is to keep the urine very dilute. Drink enough fluids to make urine almost colorless, and stones are much less likely to form.
