Just diagnosed

 Information for friends, family and carers

It is normal to have confused or mixed feelings when you are told that your loved one has a liver condition. A proper diagnosis may be a relief if you have been living with uncertainty. Or it could be sudden and unexpected.

Liver conditions can be very unpredictable. Your loved one’s experience could be quite different to someone else with the same condition. This means it can be hard for doctors to tell you exactly what to expect.

There will probably be good days and bad days. But whatever you are feeling and going through, you are not alone and there is information and support available for you.
