Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you've been diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis, take steps to care for your liver, such as:

  • Don't drink alcohol.
  • Get vaccinated against hepatitis A and B.
  • Use care with chemicals at home and at work.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Follow directions on all medications, both prescription and over the counter. Make sure your pharmacist and any doctor prescribing for you know that you have a liver disease.
  • Talk to your doctor about any herbs or supplements you're taking since some can be harmful to your liver.
