Vitamins/Supplements and Liver
Mar 17, 2011


Can taking a multivitamin/mutimineral supplement, Selenium (200mcg), Fish Oil Omega-3 and 6 (1000mg), and Glucosamine Chondroitin 1500 mg/1200 mg on a daily or every oterh day basis lead to liver enlargement?

Thank you

Response from Dr. McGovern

No I would not expect any of these to cause liver enlargement. If there is no clear cause (eg, HBV or HCV) I would talk to a liver specialist about further testing and a liver biopsy.

kindly explain my hepatitis profile
