Does any one know if having muscle wastage means that your cirrhosis is decompensated? I have recently been diagnosed with it and given little bottles of protein and carbohydrate to take between meals. I have had A.I.H. with cirrhosis for over 20 years with no other symptoms such as ascites or varices. Obviously my liver is now worse but I wondered if the muscle wastage implies that I may get other unpleasant symptoms now. I have searched the web but can't find any relevant information to help. Thank you.
