I was diagnosed with PBC, and a liver biopsy shortly after found cirrohossis. I have been following a low fat, low salt 1200 calorie diet. A week into it, i thought i could hop on the scale and see some results. Wrong. In a panic, i started checking the scale throughout the day. What i found is i can gain as much as 10 pounds during the day, wake up 8 pounds less, and so forth. Just has me crazy. I think the culprit is water rentention. My feet and legs are so swollen. Does anyone else have this nonsense? Is there a way, without medication, to stop the swelling? I did reach out to my doctor for help, but she said what i described was "Impossible". Her nurse told me weight gain can negatively impact my transplant hopes. Yikes! Truly appreciate any thoughts.
