I am a liver cirrhosis patient. My albumin level is 2.5. Please sources of food to improve the albumin?
Food's not the key: You can eat as much of whatever you want and it won't improve your serum albumin until your liver recovers. Your liver makes albumin out of protein in your diet and it's doing the best it can. Most cirrhosis can be at least partially reversed if the cause is eliminated -- whether it is virus, alcohol, iron overload, or Wilson's. Best wishes. ...Read more
Albumins are proteins which dissolve in water and are not covered with chains of sugars. The most common is serum albumin. These molecules transport other molecules which don't dissolve in water very well. But its main function is to regulate the amount of water in the blood. Another type of Albumin is the ...Read more

It'll kill him...: ... unless he stops drinking. Period. From the clinical findings, this individual continues to be a "moderate drinker." Without sobriety, his chances of recovery aer zero. How soon? I can't tell you. Can we get through this man's denial? I don't know. Is this you? Do you want to die? Or would you like to feel well once again. Cirrhosis is largely reversibly -- IF you sober up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My us report read Mildy echogenic and coarsened echotexture no focal mass. Recent lfts normal platlets good at 303 albumin 4.9 ast 13 alt 14 ggt 22 ldh 131 fibroscan 5 months earlier was only 5.7 kpa. Does that mean cirrhosis now or fatty liver? My liver
Very complex questio: I would suggest that you use HealthTap Prime to set up regular visits with a knowledgeable doctor to get better guidance. 1st, the US cannot diagnose early cirrhosis. 2nd, your fibroscan results 5 mo ago were normal (in 90-95% of people), ie less than 7 kPa. 3rd, your AST to platelet ratio index (APRI) is prob less than 1, depending on the reference range in lab report. All 3 argue against cirrhos ...Read more

Hepatologist: Your test results show lack of acute inflammation in the liver, but the presence of hepatitis c that has already caused cirrhosis and decreased liver function means your management and possible treatments should be managed by an expert - a hepatologist or infectious disease specialist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hepc, cirohsis, last 2 reports, alt/ast/bilirubin/globulin etc abnormal, new rep.All within range.Except globulin n albumin do we consider improvement?
Yes: With improvement or normalization of the liver function tests, one can assume the level of infection of the liver is lower - better. Continue an optimal diet that will provide better resistance. Sources for that: www.Drmcdougall.Com; "food for life"; "eat right, live longer"; and "eat to live". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
