I have heard that protein powders can be hard on your liver. I recently had my gallbladder removed, so I want to keep my liver as healthy as possible.
Everything is fine as long as it is in moderation, I'd imagine with any protein powder as its not a natrallyfound food (I know the pea is but it doesn't really grow in a powder form!) so as a result its going to require your body is under some sort of pressure to deal with it and your liver will no doubt have some work to do.
I'd speak to your doctor or ask to speak to a nurse of even better a medical dietition, you'd probably be fine having the pea protein here and there but if you do eat it every day or more then once a day then maybe think about getting some advice before you make any choices.
