My kind of diet- my husband has developed a liking for sweets since his liver cirrhosis. But he has put some of his muscle and weight back on in the 3 years since he was in the hospital, and his liver doctor so far is very pleased with him.
Good luck, I understand the vanity - although I just had radiation for cancer and my surgeon told me I don't have to lose weight just get back to being better - my guess is he will wait for that til my next appointment, since he told my husband I'd have to lose weight at our first appointment LOL.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year to you and your wife that you should definitely be listening to.
I've got sn appointment with the dietician at the hospital on the 10th Jan. I requested it months ago as I have type 2 diabetes as well as the cirrhosis. Last January I started a low carb, highish fat diet which is ideal for diabetics and lost 35lb in just over 3 months. Soon after I was diagnosed with cirrhosis and when I saw my hepatologist last month he was horrified. He said that the fast weight loss stresses the liver and that I must never fast. Unfortunately as I have been so upset and down since the diagnosis I have pretty much eaten whatever I fancy. Subsequently my blood sugars have increased. I saw the diabetes nurse on Friday and have started another drug which has really upset my stomach. If it turns out that my cirrhosis is due to autoimmune hepatitis I will have to go on steroids which last time I was taking them caused me to become insulin dependant.
