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.
  • Quit smoking. If you don't smoke, don't start.
  • Choose a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Follow directions on over-the-counter medications.
  • Talk to your doctor about any herbs or supplements you're taking, since some can be harmful to your liver.
