With PLD Polycystic Liver Disease, the appearance of our belly goes from flat to appearing as if we have a pregnancy blooming or an extended beer belly. The area over the liver becomes tense and hard. Some typical symptoms are feeling full after eating a small quantity of food (early satiety), nausea, dyspepsia, heartburn, followed by pain, fullness, distension, and bloating. Later symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath, malnutrition, muscle wasting, leg swelling, feet swelling, edema, the skin can turn yellow-orange, especially around the eyelids, painful bile ducts, inflamed bile ducts or cholangitis all can become evident. Avoiding estrogens and xenoestrogens helps diminish growth and symptoms. Oftentimes our symptoms are mistaken for other diseases such as gallbladder disease. Treatment requires a very knowledgeable PLD Polycystic Liver Disease, physician.
