Welcome to HCM!

You have mentioned that you have chronic liver disease.

Your stomach looking big may be due to many reasons.

1 It may be a part of general obesity ( if you are an obese individual)

2. There may be some fluid collection inside the peritoneal cavity which is called as ascitis.( This will be detected by ultrasound easily)

3 There may be some other causes like enlarged liver,or spleen.( again detected by ultrasound)

Acidity is not the cause of abdominal distension directly.

Acidity can be treated effectively by antacids and some other medicines.

Pl consult a general physician or gastroenterologist ( if available) in your place.

Good luck

God bless

Dr Uma
