“My husband has advanced cirrhosis secondary to Hep C and his doctor said ‘give him a high protein diet and no carbohydrates ... no spaghetti or fruit juice.’ I figured I could look it up online when we got home, but can't find anything about high protein-no carb diets except the Atkins Diet, which is very hard on the kidneys.  I'm at a loss ... has anyone else gotten diet instructions from their docs?”
