Cirrhosis: What You Need To Know

What is Cirrhosis?

Liver Cirrhosis

Have you been diagnosed with cirrhosis? You are not alone. Before learning about cirrhosis, it’s important to understand how the liver works.

The liver performs over 500 functions in our bodies. Everything we eat, drink and breathe goes through the liver. Toxins such as junk food, alcohol, and cigarettes negatively impact liver health.

When the liver is severely damaged, scar tissue forms. New cells do not regenerate because of scar tissue. This is called cirrhosis.

Cirrhosis prevents the liver from functioning properly. Scar tissue makes blood flow more difficult and slows the liver’s processing of hormones, drugs, toxins, and nutrients.

There is no cure for cirrhosis because scar tissue cannot be repaired.

Symptoms of Cirrhosis

Symptoms of Cirrhosis

Early symptoms of cirrhosis may be mild and easy to ignore. The following are common symptoms:

  1. Loss of appetite
  2. Fatigue (being tired a lot)
  3. Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
  4. Blood in stool

Going to the doctor for a physical exam can help you find out more information. Your doctor may recommend a blood or liver function test to diagnose cirrhosis.

Cirrhosis Diet

Eat Me!

Healthy fats

Omega 3 and monounsaturated fats improve your liver's ability to produce glucose and reduce fat. Nuts, seeds, and avocado are excellent sources.

Natural vitamins and minerals

A diet rich in vitamins and minerals helps the liver regenerate cells. Green leafy vegetables are the most nutrient dense food.

Low calorie foods

Reducing your calories will lead to a slimmer body and make it easier for the liver to function. Fruits, vegetables, and beans are low in calories and high in fiber, so you will stay full for longer.


Protein is an important part of a well-balanced diet. Choose lean protein sources with sources with low fat like beans, legumes, and fish.


If nutrients aren't broken down properly, more fat develops in the liver. Antioxidants help break down nutrients. Berries, and green tea are great sources.

Avoid These!

Unhealthy fats

Trans and saturated fats contribute to a fatty liver. Eat less meat and dairy and limit your use of oil in cooking. Hydrogenated vegetable oil is particularly harmful and linked to cancer.


Genetically modified foods contain toxins that are hard on the liver. Common sources are meat and dairy and processed foods that contain soy and corn like sugary breakfast cereals.

Simple carbs

Simple carbohydrates spike blood sugar levels because they are processed by the body very quickly. Avoid white bread, candy, and baked goods.


Sodium raises blood pressure, restricts blood flow, and inhibits healthy kidney functioning. Pay attention to how much salt is in your food by reading nutritional information on packages and cooking at home. Avoid cured meats.


Processing alcohol damages your liver. If your cirrhosis is due to alcoholic fatty liver diseases, do not drink any type of alcohol. For other conditions, drink infrequently and never binge.

Important Facts

  • Fatty liver disease may progress to cirrhosis. Fatty liver disease is typically caused by an unhealthy diet.
  • Alcoholic fatty liver disease can progress to cirrhosis. If you have cirrhosis, it is important not to drink alcohol.
  • Individuals with cirrhosis should avoid high sodium foods. Amsety Bars adhere to this health guideline and contain no added salt.
  • Individuals with cirrhosis may need extra protein in their diet. Research suggests that vegetable and dairy protein sources are more beneficial for liver health than meat sources.
  • Fried and processed foods damage the liver because they contain toxins that are difficult to break down.
