So I think my fibrosis comes from overuse of vitamin A. I took it for years to treat cystic acne and it did help. But when I was having bad breakouts I took more than I should. I was told it could be toxic by one doctor. I just thought " it's a vitamin, how bad can it be?" And nothing seemed wrong. No one ever explained it could destroy my liver and what that meant. But I probably wouldn't have believed a vitamin could do this kind of damage.
So today I have fibrosis. I googled vitamin A toxic liver and didn't find much. What I did find seemed to say that even with lifestyle changes the fibrosis progressed and the patients died in 4-5 years. Not very encouraging.
I guess I'm half venting and half hoping someone on here will know something about this specific damage. But I guess I don't think many people have or have studied this particular form of fibrosis.
