Hello all. I feel like all I do is ask ask ask and never offer any kind of help in return. I apologize for that but I’m still learning myself and I’m not comfortable with offering advice really. That being said, today I’m here to vent.
One of my aunts was recently diagnosed with cirrhosis which was caused by her poor diet/weight. When she told me, I tried to be helpful by telling her good liver friendly foods, what to avoid, etc. The other day she shared a recipe for a cake and said she wanted to make it so I told her no! Haha she then comments back and said her doctor told her that there’s no documentation on any specific foods or diets that help people with cirrhosis! I told her if that was the case she wouldn’t have cirrhosis caused by her diet to begin with and to find a different doctor. I’m absolutely shocked and heartbroken over this, she has always been like a second mom to me and all of my siblings and I know she isn’t watching her diet like she should. Liver disease is everywhere it seems and today I’m feeling defeated by it. Thank you for reading this, I hope you all have a good weekend.
