PBC is a chronic autoimmune liver disease that can progress slowly over time. Like other chronic diseases, it is important for those with PBC to maintain their overall health to help control disease progression and reduce their risk of complications from other chronic diseases.
Overall health maintenance includes a healthy diet and practicing good eating habits.
A healthy diet is a helpful tool in reducing the risk of developing PBC-associated complications such as osteoporosis, fatty liver, portal hypertension, and heart disease.
When you are diagnosed with PBC, it’s natural to have questions about what food to eat. PBC experts recommend that patients follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly. As each person with PBC is different, there is no single diet that suits everyone. Here are some ideas to help you to determine the best healthy diet for you.
