Supplements and vitamins

 Most people can get the vitamins and other nutrients that they need by eating a healthy balanced diet. Many vitamin supplements will come straight back out in your pee if you take high doses. But some can do more harm than good. Especially if you already have a liver condition.

In some cases you might be told to take supplements to make sure you are getting enough of some vitamins. Particularly if your condition makes it hard for you to digest fat. Or if you are finding it hard to eat because of your symptoms

If you have a liver condition it is important to always talk to your medical team before you try a new supplement.
