I was diagnosed 10 years ago with Cirrhosis after a dx for a very agressive form Hemochromatosis (iron overload), I've read a number of websites which make claims that Compensated Cirrhosis doesn't have symptoms, is this true, if anyone does can they please specify what symptoms or signs they have encountered?
As a result of Hemochromatosis, I have a number of secondary conditions including GH deficiency, Hypopituartism, Type 1 Diabetes and other glandular damage however whilst I'm treated for all the above, I still feel significantly symptomatic and need to know if this is as a result of the Liver Damage or if there may be another secondary condition.
Look forward to your feedback and thanks in advance,

No, my symptoms have been static for the last 10 years and my Gastro believe my Liver is workinvg excellently therefore I can't understand why I feel the way I do.
Various respected institutions websites state frequently that there shouldn't be symptoms if Compensated where a few say differently.
I clearly have Portal Hypertension as my Spleen was measured at 24 (cm in circumfrence I think), average is 11.
I'm just keen to know from individuals who have compensated Cirrhosis or people in the know whether I should be experiencing symptoms, I have all my Liver Related blood results from 2007 to hand which I can post.
Hello, can you please share what your symptoms with compensated cirrhosis were that you ignored? I am awaiting to find out if I have cirrhosis currently (found when discovering a kidney issue), but I don't have any of the classical symptoms. They did an ultrasound that said "Hepatic fibrosis/cirrhosis" but are doing a CT scan. All of my blood work is fine, but I know you can have liver disease with normal blood work.
