I understand your concern regarding this and while liver cannot heal or return to normal function once damage is severe, there are some things you can do to help take care of your liver such as eating a healthy diet that is low in salt, avoiding alcohol intake, get vaccinated for diseases such as influenza, hepatitis A and hepatitis B, and pneumococcal pneumonia, take medication as prescribed as well as talk to your doctor about all medicines you take, including herbs and supplements and over-the-counter medicines. There are many factors to consider in determining the outlook for cirrhosis such as your medical history and results of other tests. It is best that you discuss this with your doctor also for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
