Case history: liver cirrhosis

History of liver cirrhosis of alcoholic genesis

Long-term alcohol abuse is considered one of the main causes of the disease. Often, the history of liver cirrhosis of alcoholic genesis begins with seemingly harmless consumption of alcohol on a regular basis. Even 1 liter of beer or half a liter of wine, drunk daily, inflict an irreparable blow on the liver. Poisoned tissues die off, being replaced by fat cells, and can no longer be restored. Alcohol breakdown products are not eliminated from the body, accumulating toxins can cause death of the patient.

  • Enlarged liver
  • Jaundice
  • Redness of the skin of the hands
  • Accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity.

Treatment for cirrhosis is to eliminate the cause of the disease. And although the restoration of damaged tissue is not considered possible, prolonging the patient’s life and improving its quality is a very real task. Lifelong refusal from any kind of alcoholic beverages should become the main rule of his existence for the patient. Treatment of viral hepatitis and elimination of possible complications (fluid in the abdominal cavity, esophageal varicose veins) is the primary task of the attending physician. You may also need to follow a special diet that spares the patient’s liver. Anyone who takes vitamins must necessarily seek the advice of a doctor, vitamins can contribute to the destruction of damaged liver tissue, you need to be extremely careful with them.
