Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

Treatment for Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

Unfortunately, liver damage from primary biliary cirrhosis cannot be reversed. However, treatment may be able to slow further progression and reduce symptoms and complications.
 
Treatment for primary biliary cirrhosis may include:
 
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medications
  • Liver transplant.
     
Although ursodiol (a medication used to dissolve gallstones) can be beneficial for patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, it does not cure the disease. A liver transplant may be necessary if the liver is severely damaged.
