Liver Cirrhosis: Two and a Half Years on Herbs and Still Doing Fine

Language:  English

Ling was 60 years old when she first came to see us. She is a known Hepatitis C carrier for over a decade. She did nothing about it, and ate anything she liked. A blood test done on 12 December 2008 indicated elevated liver enzymes and her alpha-fetoprotein was at 75. A repeat of her liver function test done on 31 March 2009 was not good either. A CT scan done on 15 April, 2009 indicated cirrhosis of the liver with portal hypertension. A 13 mm lesion was seen in the right lobe, consistent with a haemangioma. A 15mm cyst was seen in the left lobe of her liver. Her doctor suggested she undergo treatment. Listen to her.
