Hepatic Encephalopathy is defined as a condition where there is an acute brain function decline. This happens when the liver is unable to remove toxins and these reach the brain. It can be both short-term or long-term followed with symptoms like trouble in thinking, personality changes, confusion, loss of memory and also inability to make the right decisions.
HOW IS HEPATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY DIAGNOSED?
Hepatic Encephalopathy can be caused by kidney problems, low oxygen levels, surgery/trauma, fatigue and dehydration, among others.
HOW IS HEPATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY TREATED?
Treatment options for hepatic encephalopathy differ depending on the severity and underlying cause of the condition. Doctors advise people to limit how much meat and other animal protein they eat. Medications can also help slow the rate at which your blood absorbs toxins. In severe cases that cause difficulty breathing, a ventilator or oxygen delivered through a mask may be necessary. The ultimate treatment is to replace the damaged liver with a healthy donor liver.
DID YOU KNOW?
With treatment, hepatic encephalopathy is frequently reversible. In fact, complete recovery is possible, especially if the encephalopathy was triggered by a reversible cause. However, people with a chronic liver disorder are susceptible to future episodes of encephalopathy. Some require continuous treatment.
