Any body here with liver-transplant experience. I am going through pre-transplant tests. I have diabetes (17 years) and Sarcodoises. Since 12th Dec 2019 I have chronic Anemia and I am given blood on regular basis. Is it dangerous to have transplant in my situation.

This is not something that can be addressed on an Internet forum. Liver transplants are not offered without good reason. Of course in a medical economy that is based on such activity, that may be naive.

I would talk to your physicians and get answers. Wrtie down your questions first. Then get a second opinion if you still have doubts. Good luck.

All prayers with Shri RSinghji. I do get a lot of different perspectives and info on medical issues from the Internet (just browse widely). Not a substitute for real doctors of course, but at least it tells me some questions to ponder. Even my doc, who used to laugh whenever I said "The Internet says.. now listens.

many of my patients and friends trust homeopathy in chronic diseases.. I personaly dont feel they are more effective than placebo.. i have seen people go to homeopath after I advice them some minor operation only to return with severe form of disease which needs major surgery with its increased complications..

Kindly show me one medical research where plecebo has reversed eye vision. I am sure one has 100 years medical research on record .

Please remember that one can't fight data with bigotry. Because medical field is so less understood that it's a hit or miss for all steams : allopathic or ayurveda or homepathy, one may take it off the field of science and call it an art.

Sorry to hear saar - best wishes for everything

Anaemia in itself is not a contraindication to liver transplant - the anaemia in your situation can be due to a variety of causes including chronic inflammation from sarcoidosis, iron deficiency (from liver problems itself), and/or a consequence of having chronic diseases
Transplant lists in any case are prioritised by clinical urgency - in the US, this is assessed with the MELD score and a modified version (UKELD) is used in the UK, not sure about India - and the pre-transplant tests are all designed to identify whether you will be healthy enough (physically and mentally) to undergo the procedure and do well afterwards

Some resources for you, hope it helps

My mom now in her early 80's harps on us to take half a spoon of below mixture once a day, any time of the day. My grandmother taught her this and my mother has been healthy & virus free all her life.

Mix haldi powder, amla powder and partially crushed methi seeds in equal amounts; I follow her advise and have not had any seasonal sickness in desh or videsh. Builds immunity, is antioxidant, and lubricates the joints i.e. fulfills basic requirements of any 50+ adult.

Anyway let's see how things go from here.

Yes, I have seen numerous cases where homeopathy has worked positively. The point of starting this thread was not to support that only. Other topics and cases most welcome.

Yes I am following low fat and zero salt diet. Four months without salt :(( . It is surgical strike on appetite. Moi, a ghee drinking Haryanvi Jaat.
Low fat causes dry skin. i am using coconut cream by tons (one of the best hydrating cream). Alors Je ne panique pas.
