Hi Friends, For those with cirrhosis (and carers of a cirrhotic person) do you follow the protein/energy intake recommendations religiously? --35-40kcal and 1.5g of protein for every kg of your body weight per day. I have a hard time getting the protein without eating meat. I'm not a vegetarian but my doctor warned me away from red meat as it is more likely to precipitate HE. I get most of mine from a plant protein shake with high protein milk, fish and Greek yoghurt but it sure gets to be a chore. Also, does anyone/everyone make sure to have the LNS (late night snack)? I am told to go to bed on at least 25g of carbs with peanut butter/jam or digestive biscuits and cheese with a glass of milk for example.
