Autoimmune Hepatitis & CBD

Posted by jromanmi @jromanmi, Nov 21, 2019

Hello I have AIH which has put me in Stg 4 cirrhosis of the liver. I now have Osteoarthritis in my left hip (Bone on Bone) right hip thinning. Because of my liver I was told I could not have hip replacement.
I have heard good things about CBD oils or creams. Will the CBD make my liver worse? I am looking for alternatives to continue walking or just move with out damaging my liver more.

I have been on various medications but the last doctor I saw is the best. She stabilized me although its the hip that stops me from taking addictional medication because I worry about my liver. The CBD is new but from what I read it effective but will it impact my Liver? I have not been able to see my doctor since being laid off of work.

@jromanmi, I have no medical background or training but after doing a little searching it looks like it depends on how much CBD oil you are taking. Here are some articles I found that are from 2019 but I would still run it by your doctor or pharmacist to make sure there are no issues with using it with any other medications you are taking.

@jromanmi l have the same AE an HE l had people tell me about cbd matter of fact my accountant at the time was selling it. But l wasn't going to try anything l wasn't informed about. Then twice l was watching Dr. Oz and they went out to cbd shops and found out 75% don't even have the ingredients listed and also THRis in some on them. And of course non is FDA approved. And l not sure of FDA approval either because of all the opiods and recall meds. Just last week l got a letter about recalled zantac and we heard that in the news months ago. And l just getting the letter last week. Have you tried any probiotics? And also have your vitamin D levels checked for some reason lots of people are low in vitamin D. GOD BLESS.
