New user here. Have had fatty liver for many years. Recently ALT/AST mildly elevated.
Seen a GI doc and got a liver biopsy. Biopsy showed cirrhosis. I have no noticeable symptoms. Never drank or done drugs. Anywho, my question is I have read several places that the diabetes medicine Metformin should not be used by people with liver cirrhosis. I am type 2 diabetic. I have not discussed this with any of my doctors yet because my appointments are a few weeks away. Just wondering if anyone on this forum has any insight on metformin + cirrhosis? Any type 2's with cirrhosis on here who take metformin? Should an alternative to metformin be used?
Having abdominal MRI in 4 weeks. Had ultrasound but also wanted MRI for a better.
Thanks for reading......
