Have any of you been told by your nutritionist that using TPN long term is bad and will destroy your liver?
You can get 'fatty liver' as a result of prolonged TPN usage but im sure the nutrition clinic will take regular bloods and make any relevant changes to the PN prescription to combat this - My husbands bloods a few months back were showling slightly abnormal LFT's and after further tests and some 'tweeking' they have returned to normal.
