You will want to be certain that you are seeing a liver specialist to determine what options are available for you in terms of treatment. Some patients with cirrhosis can not take treatment depending on whether they have other complications, such as fluid in the belly (ascites).
You will also want a liver specialist to determine if you need endoscopy where a tube is inserted into your swallowing tube (esophagus) to determine if you have large swollen blood vessels (varices). If you do, you will need some special blood pressure medication.
The most important issue in diet, if you have complications, is salt restriction.
