Autoimmune hepatitis*

Is it beneficial to use turmeric for cirrhosis caused by autoimmune hepatitis?

@444

Hello John, Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to me. It was very helpful. I have an appointment with my Liver spec soon and will ask more about the diet more. I am keeping a food journal and plan to read about Dr. Wahls diet. Georgina

@444, I am a liver and kidney transplant recipient. I was once on prednisone and imuran when my GI thought I had AIH. Are you experiencing any symptoms?
Keeping a food journal sounds like a good thing. It could prove helpful at your next appointmtnet with the liver specialist. If I might offer a suggestion- if you are experiencing symptoms, note them, too.
Please consult with the liver specialist before you introduce any over the counter meds or supplements to your diet.

Hello @luserm1 – Welcome to Mayo Connect. We are glad you found us. Connect is a good place to share your health concerns, ask questions and learn what others are doing for similar health concerns. I have no medical training or background but I do have an autoimmune disease – polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). I take turmeric supplements to help with the inflammation and think it helps some. When I’m trying to find as much out as I can about a supplement, drug or treatment I will use Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/) which is great for finding research information. I did a search on your question – Is it beneficial to use turmeric for cirrhosis caused by autoimmune hepatitis? and it returned quite a few links that may be of interest to you.

Can you share a little information about yourself and what you are doing for treatment now? It might be helpful for other Connect members with similar health concerns.

John

I am waiting to see my doctor. Have had blood tests. I have an enlarged liver. Fatty liver enlarged from the previous Ultrasound. I will update as results come in and see my doctor again.
