Hi everyone, I recently had my six monthly check for PBC after diagnosis three and a half years ago and at diagnosis was told I had Cirrhosis. Consultant Gastrologist has decided not to see me for 12 months instead of 6. I'm quite concerned that I won't be having my bloods checked for another year. I also asked him if I could be checked for vit.D but when I asked for the results he said they hadn't come through. I'm not a pushy person but wonder if because of my age and as I would not be eligible for a transplant, He isn't bothering. The other question I'd like to ask is about Cholesterol. My GP found recently that my Cholesterol was too high at 6.7 and my Blood pressure was raised. I decided not to take Statins as I don't think it's a good idea with PBC but don't know how to lower it as I don't have a high fat diet. Any ideas anyone?
Hope everyone has a very Happy Christmas and that 2017 is a much healthier one.
