Eating Pickles for Liver toxity
Jun 13, 2006

Hello Doctors, thanks so much for all you people do here on

I have heard that people who have recently had liver transplants much eat many pickles per day to help with toxity build up. What do you think about eating this to help with some of the toxity associated with HIV medications?

Thanks, Mike

Response from Dr. Henry

That is a new one for me as far as any data supporting a benefit of eating pickles for decreasing liver problems. If any reader has a reference for a study supporting that practice please post! KH
