I know that liver disease causes itching - but what causes it? Is it inflammation? toxins?
I'm on Olestyr / Cholestyramine and it works great to take away the itch. But now I'm getting itchy again. Dr. says I can take more olestyr but I want to understand why I itch so I can decide if it matters. (ie if its toxins that the olestyr is wisking away that's a good thing for my liver... if not I'll stand a bit of itching until it gets bad)
