Abstinence From Eating In Liver Cirrhosis?
, my father experienced a reduction in the liver, and the doctor said that the liver was damaged, and the connective tissue was replaced … And the stomach felt bloated continuously … Does this disease get better or not?
Diminution of the liver by replacing the connective tissue in the liver may be liver cirrhosis / cirrhosis of the liver. Cirrhosis of the liver is a condition in which liver tissue is damaged and replaced with scar tissue. The cause of liver cirrhosis can be due to hepatitis infection, alcohol consumption, fatty liver, obesity, cystic fibrosis, other infections, and side effects of some drugs.
Cirrhosis of the liver can cause symptoms such as flatulence, enlarged abdomen, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, decreased appetite, weakness, there are signs such as cobwebs on the skin, jaundice appears, black bowel movements, blood vomiting.
To ensure liver cirrhosis the doctor will perform anamensis, physical examination, and then performed an ultrasound, blood test, CT scan, MRI, and biopsy if necessary. For the treatment of cirrhosis itself is done to prevent the development of disease becoming more severe, for example with a low salt diet, drugs to reduce fluids in the body, drugs to reduce pressure in the heart, drugs to reduce other complaints, and treatment of diseases that cause (such as handling hepatitis if cirrhosis is caused due to hepatitis). Liver that has been damaged due to cirrhosis cannot return to normal as before. If the damage gets worse, the doctor can consider other options in the form of a liver transplant.
I suggest that your father consult directly with a doctor of internal medicine so that it can be re-evaluated and that your father can get further treatment. Regarding food, your father should consume healthy and nutritious foods that are low in salt, avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and raw seafood.
Hope it helps you,
