Can Liver Cirrhosis Patients Eat Seafood?

Patients with liver cirrhosis can eat seafood, but in right amount. However, if patients have symptoms of bleeding tendency or coagulation disorders, they cannot eat seafood. The concrete causes are presented below:

Seafood is rich in unsaturated fattyacid which can effectively prevent atherosclerosis. Besides, some seafood also contains anti-caner and anti-tumor substances. For example, algal polysaccharides contained in seafood is widely used in preventing cancer; both chitin contained in crabs and glycoprotein contained in clam shellfish have great effects on anticancer; stichopus japonicus sekenka and saponin contained in sea cucumber also work in preventing cancer and tumor.
