I am 44 years old and have recently been diagnosed with PBC. I had never heard of PBC and it certainly has come as a shock to myself and my family. After meeting the Gastroentologist I understand my prognosis is good and that I should have a normal life expectancy as anyone without PBC....I just find this hard to believe. I started Ursodiol right away and will likely need it for life. I am very interested in learning more and are hoping some of you can offer some guidance into nutrition, exercise, perhaps some homeopathic methods to assist with living with this disease. I am really scared that I won't be privileged to live until a beautiful old age. I am very interested in what others are doing to maintain healthy living. I live in Canada but have been researching all sites that I can find. I love the support that is offered through this site.
