Cirrhosis with Hyperlipidemia

Hi everyone. Diagnosed with cirrhosis in Jan 2016 ,alcohol related. stopped alcohol since may2016, feeling fatigue though it improved significantly after alcohol cessation. How ever my Hb is 11.2 ,Platelet 99.and bili 75 mmol. AST and ALT came normal. The Bp stays around 106/68mmhg. I am on low salt and low fat diet but my cholesterol is very high 8.9 and ldl is 6. am very worried about the cholesterol. I am afraid to start statins.

Please advice. Thank You

  • My cirrhosis is from drinking and Hep C. Its very advanced. Your platelet count is a bit low, mine can become 18 so I am not trying to scare you. It sounds as you are rather ill from Cirrhosis but you can work with that. I do it and mine turned into liver cancer 2 years ago. Start walking or some form of exercise. Push yourself a bit for the best result. It will give you energy, circulate blood and oxygen and umprove your mood and mental clairty. I am 64. I really do try hard. Its not easy but you can improve your situation. Lots of luck.

  • I am 36 and my platelets were 250 in jan when i initially had fever and admitted , it dropped since then. Can cirrhosis cause such rapid fall? I am wondering if I am recovering from alcoholic hepatitis. all blood parameters are improving except platelets and Bilirubin and most of bilirubin is indirect.

  • Sounds possible. The liver always tries to heal itself. It is an amazing organ. Yours may be healing slowly. I am decompensated. Its end stage and even it can last many years depending on how well you take care of yourself. Happy to share information. Aloha
