I have cirrhosis of the liver.  I was a non responder twice (treatment from doctors.)  I have started a vitamin regimen and take milk thistle daily.  Does anybody have imformation on alpha lipoic Acid daily dose recomendation for people with cirrhosis?

Nothing but hepatitis C treatment will stop the progression of your liver disease. Any vitamins or supplement can be toxic to someone with cirrhosis. You should be seeing a hepatologist as soon as possible at either Stanford or in the city UCSF or CPMC. They are the only ones that can help you manage your cirrhosis. Treating yourself is dangerous and will inevitability lead to cirrhosis progressing and your disease getting worse. Get the facts now before you reach the point of no return. Remember cirrhosis is a potentially fatal disease if not properly managed.

Do you have symptoms of cirrhosis yet?

You should try to get into a clinical trial that takes patients with cirrhosis and try to cure your cirrhosis before you are no longer able to treat it because you are too ill. If that happens you will need a liver transplant which here is the Bay Area can take many years of illness and suffering to get.

What genotype are you?

Cheers!
