Good morning doctor. NAsk: can cirrhosis patients with hepC consume Cow Kefir Milk? NTrm ksh. Meutia.
Hello Meutia, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
People with cirrhosis may consume kefir milk. Basically, people with cirrhosis still need protein intake from food. Research shows that protein derived from plants and dairy products is better for people with cirrhosis to consume than protein from meat. In addition to maintaining protein intake, people with cirrhosis are also advised to avoid alcohol consumption, increase fiber consumption from both fruits and vegetables, or from complex carbohydrates (such as oatmeal or whole grains). People with cirrhosis are also advised to reduce their consumption of salt, sugary foods and fatty foods.
You can also consult directly with a nutritionist to get complete nutritional management for people with cirrhosis.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
