Diet and weight loss is the key.    You have already told me everything.   I need to know WHAT ARE YOUR QUESTIONS.

Question is what is the diet and what is the best key to get weight loss this is the problem to know because when we ask from experts all they answer back you can eat anything

What caused the end stage liver disease?

A low fat diet is indicated for end stage liver disease.   Weight loss just depends on eating fewer calories and eating less.   Does she drink milk, juice, or soda?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Hepatitis C caused her on end stage
and milk sometimes with fat and no other drinks at all
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Sorry i mean she takes milk sometimes with no fat
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 9 days ago.

She should cut all dairy products out completely.   No red meat and no lunch meat/hotdogs/sausage.   Following a vegan, vegetarian, or Mediterranean diet would help the most.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Ok any other advice you could give please i mean exercise
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 9 days ago.

Exercise helps with weight loss but does not do anything at all for liver disease .

any preference in fruits for liver
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 9 days ago.

Not sure what you are asking here.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
In her age of 53 is there any chance of liver recovery with the stage cirrhosis and liver on end
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 9 days ago.

Its hard to comment on that as I really have no way of knowing how ill she is.   If you have been told that she has end stage cirrhosis, then there is no chance of complete recovery.   I’m sorry.   Does this help to answer your question? Please let me know if there is anything you do not understand and if you have any feedback for me.
