I was just wondering whether in fact most of the beer bellies that we see everywhere are in fact Ascites.
I for one didn't even know there was such a thing as ascites
I don't think GP's are in the main very observant. In spite of liver function tests husband was only diagnosed as having diabetis 2 in spite of also having itching problems and a paunchly demeanor and low albumin.
Cirrhosis and cancer only discovered after husbands stomach became so bad he lost appetite and had breathlessness!
