I am newly diagnosed (June, 2018) with PBC. My liver enzymes were through the roof (800+). I had a emergency gallbladder removal in May- but symptoms did not resolve - hence further testing and diagnosis of PBC. My cholesterol is insanely high - almost 600. My doc told me that I cannot take cholesterol lowering meds because it is so hard on the liver. I have been placed in the “moderate” stage of PBC based upon my biopsy. I have severe pain in my liver - almost daily. Hurts in my back and shoulders as well.
Any clue/suggestions on how to get cholesterol down without meds? My cholesterol was 198 a year ago, so you can see how it has spiked. Thanks!
