I have been suffering from cirrhosis for quite some time now but nobody has been able to tell me the cause.
My latest fibromax results showed an increase in the fibrotest and steatotest. My previous fibrotest was : 0.83 now it's 0.88 and my steatotest was 0.43 and now it's 0.64. All this happened in 1 year in which I have gained about 7 kgs.
I would like to know when should I consider a liver transplant and what is causing the fibrossis to increase? The doctors I have asked in my country didn't provide a valid answer to this question. I can provide the tests via email or upload them somehow if they're needed.
the function of the liver which is measured by lab tests appears normal so i am hopeful that transplant will not be ncessary for some time. remember however there is a small, finite risk for the development of HCC, which could change things.
