My ammonia level was 179. Toxins in blood. Sonogram shows enlarged liver. Does this mean I have liver cirrhosis as I was told. If so, what type?

My ammonia level was 179. Toxins in blood. Sonogram shows enlarged liver. Does this mean I have liver cirrhosis as I was told. If so, what type?

Cannot say w/o...: ...Much more history at minimum. However, if mucomyst (acetylcysteine) brings ammonia down and liver given chance to recover, can often improve function. Need to avoid any non-essential taxes to liver function--like alcohol and non-essential drugs/meds. Gi or hepatology (/liver specialist) can help guide management if not rapidly improving. ...Read more

Why is it a liver cirrhosis patient find it hard to swallow foods leading to his death due to low blood pressure?

Why is it a liver cirrhosis patient find it hard to swallow foods leading to his death due to low blood pressure?

Last stages: At the end, the liver is unable to remove small molecules that cause the blood vessels to relax and not return blood to the heart. Appetite goes around this time. The pathology community is talking about dropping the word "cirrhosis" as it conveys a sense of hopelessness; in fact if the cause can be rx'd, it often at least partly reverses itself. If not, wishing a peaceful & dignified end. ...Read more

EGD is next.: People with cirrhosis can get varicose (dilated veins) within the esophagus which can bleed. If the colonoscopy didn’t show anything then the next step should be EGD for a look at the esophagus. Blood testing as well to see if you’re anemic and/or coagulopathic. ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver, have multiple kidney stones. I have blood in urine for 5months now its bright red blood, no ins.

Blood in urine: Kidney stones can cause plenty of problems and can cause some blood in the urine. But bright red blood in the urine is a possible sign of something worse, such as bladder cancer. If you are unable to get in to see a urologist, you should consider going to an E.R. Btw, ultrasound is terrible at diagnosing kidney stones. You need a ct-urogram and cystoscopy. ...Read more

Bring all your test results to the appointment. ...Read more

How does cirrhosis cause liver cancer? I have liver cirrhosis, and i’ve read that increases my risk of getting liver cancer. How does that work?

Nobody knows fully: Cirrhosis is both a degenerative and an inflammatory disease. The nodules of abnormal liver tissue are growing abnormally because they are inflamed by whatever caused the cirrhosis (hep viruses, alcohol, auto immune disorder etc.). Chronic inflammation can lead to malignant transformation, and does in 10%+ of cases of long-term cirrhosis. Reducing the inflammation, when possible, is what helps. ...Read more

I have numbness of feet been told diabetes caused it but I have liver cirrhosis and heard that could cause it. How could I find out which is the reaso?

It's moot: Cirrhosis seldom produces a neuropathy, but the alcoholism that may have caused often leaves a stocking anesthesia even after sobriety is achieved. Diabetes can produce the same loss of feeling. It's not an issue, Jim, since neither has a specific treatment. The key is that diabetes is manageable and cirrhosis largely reversible on removing the cause. ...Read more
