Handling Of Swollen Abdomen Liver Patients?
I want to ask my father, his body is itchy, his stomach is distended, his eyes are yellow, the doctor said, my father has liver, but the lab results have not come out yet, my question is whether there is a cure for liver disease and whether my father’s stomach can be normal again
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The swollen stomach that is experienced can be referred to as ascites. Some medical conditions that can cause ascites include liver disorders, cancer, kidney failure, or abnormalities in the heart. Ascites occurs due to the accumulation of fluid in the intra-abdominal space, which manifests as the stomach and abdominal circumference which is increased due to the accumulation of fluid. If indeed there is suspected liver disease, it needs to be explored further about the intended liver disease.
Keep in mind the underlying causes of liver disease and the condition of damage that has been experienced by the liver. There are several stages of liver disease, namely the inflammatory phase, the phase of fibrosis, the phase of hepatic cirrhosis, and failure of intact liver function. Some medical conditions related to liver include hepatitis, alcohol-related liver disease, fatty liver disease not related to alcohol, genetic / hereditary-related liver disease, liver cancer / malignancy.
Optimal treatment is adjusted to the results of consultation with a doctor / specialist doctor, after anamnesis, physical examination, and supporting examinations related to the condition of the liver is experienced. Restoring the function of damaged liver tissue cannot be done, but the symptoms of ascites can be corrected and reduced by treating the underlying cause of ascites (liver disease), but the condition of these ascites can recur if the condition of the liver has extensive damage.
Hopefully this information can help you,
