I was goggling on the internet in order to see if liver cysts could be connected to mast cell disorders. And then I came to this forum and a old thread mentioning that liver cysts are often seen in patients with MCAD. First time I have seen this connection mentioned.
I have a hard time getting diagnosed for MCAD as it is not recognized in my home country (Denmark). And then I have multiple liver cysts and pericarditis (heart inflammation). And no health care providers seems to react or see any connections.
So I would like to ask Dr. Diana to tell me if there is more to know about this connection, and what to do.
Well, Hon, I know that we are prone to cyst development all over the place (organs, spine, subcutaneous, etc). I know that many of us have mast cells gone wild and need antihistamines/ mast cell stabilizers. But honestly, I don’t *think* there is any connection beyond that — certainly not in the literature. 🙁 Are you on antihistamines, BTW? I think we are creating the science as we go, honestly! How fun to be a pioneer, right? ha. Big hug…
