fasting wont induce G I bleeding but yes it would possible push you into hepatic encephalopathy and hepato renal syndrome.
you need to think bout your nutriton first. being a cirrhotic patient you have to be very careful in many regards

its not that easy to look into the nutrition just talking on the net. there are lots of factors to look into it and we have to consider even your hepatic status and the cause of its cirrhosis.
