Itchy Skin, Cold Feet In The History Of Patients With Liver Dysfunction?
Andri, I was once diagnosed with liver dysfunction and its analysis was due to excess protein, but not all signs of liver function disorder I experienced. What I feel is itchy skin and cold feet, but also sometimes. So I have how to cure it. thank you
Good morning Andri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints that you experience with cold feet and itchy skin can occur due to various causes, ranging from dry skin, water fleas, parasitic infections, various types of allergies, insect bites or stings, to nerve disorders. Liver disorders can also cause itching, but not all liver disorders cause it
As for the diagnosis of impaired liver function, if there are no specific symptoms doctors usually find out from investigations, in the form of liver function tests which include measuring components called SGOT, SGPT and blood albumin levels. With regard to this history of liver disorders, because we did not examine you directly, we cannot correct whether the decision taken by your doctor is correct or not by diagnosing you so. But if you doubt the diagnosis, for example because you feel that you are over-diagnosed for a complaint that you feel is simple, as a patient you have the right to seek a second opinion from a hepatologist or other internist.
As for complaints of itching that you feel you should consult a dermatologist to get further treatment. While at home, avoid excessive scratching, maintain a healthy lifestyle by staying away from smoking, stress, increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
