Hello doctorrnMy father has liver cirrhosis. And I have 3 young children. Do I need to do a test. Afraid that my children will contract liver disease? What should I do to make sure my children are healthy and not infected with liver disease?

1 Answer:

good Mary,

cirrhosis of the liver is the medical term for constriction of the liver in which the liver cells shrink due to the nature of the tissue turning into scar tissue. The body creates scar tissue when an injury is severe enough. In the case of liver cirrhosis, the "injury" occurs due to long-term inflammation of the liver. Liver cirrhosis is usually a continuation of hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Both of these diseases are usually transmitted through exposure to blood from someone who has the disease, usually through sexual intercourse, the use of blood-infected tools such as needles, razors, scalpels, and from mother to child. By immunizing against hepatitis A, B and C, you are generally one step further from the risk of contracting the disease. In addition, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle with healthy sexual relationships and avoid sharing tools with hepatitis sufferers. There is nothing wrong with you and your children doing a liver health check at this time. Here we attach an article about liver cirrhosis. Hope it is useful.
