Liver-healthy diet involves lowering salt intake, eating more carbohydrates, and cutting down on protein consumption Excess salt can worsen liver damage. Processed foods, such as those that come in a can or frozen package, have lots of sodium, so it is best to avoid these. Check the labels on any packaged foods before you offer them to your loved one. You might also consider using a salt substitute .Consider joining rehabilitation programs or consult a counselor FOR MEDICATION CONSULT ONLINE IN PRIVATE after months you can test again.

lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given, from which I learn that TSH is in the sub-clinical hypothyroidism range and LFT values are high (no details given). Usually sub-clinical hypothyroidism is not treated unless a patient has troublesome symptoms associated with that condition. Since you have not given any values of liver enzymes, there is no way to comment. Regarding thyroid please let me know if there are any associated symptoms. Thanks.

Liver Transplant Surgery - Situations Where Is It Required!

Liver Transplant Surgery - Situations Where Is It Required!
A liver transplant surgery is a procedure by the virtue of which the doctors remove the liver in that cases where it becomes non-functional or does not function appropriately. In this process, the malfunctioning liver is substituted with the healthy liver obtained from a living donor.

Liver transplant surgery has been performed in the medicine for more than 30 years and it has been observed that this surgery is successful and the patients who undergo liver transplant are able to live healthy lives.
Liver transplant is usually performed in the cases where the liver failure could not be treated by other alternative medical treatments available and cancerous conditions. There can be either acute liver failure or chronic liver failure. The Liver transplantation is more often performed in order to treat the chronic ailments.

In Adults

In the cases of adults, one of the major causes of getting liver transplantation done is liver cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is a medical condition where there is a gradual deterioration of liver and severe chronic illness may lead to malfunctioning of the liver.
The blood flow across the liver can be blocked due to the dominance of the scar tissue over healthy tissue.
There can also be other reasons for cirrhosis which include the attack of viruses like hepatitis B and C, the alcoholic liver disease due to excess intake of alcohol, increase in the fat proportion in the liver, Autoimmune disorders of liver or you can say, hereditary diseases such as hemochromatosis and Wilson s disease.
When the alcohol intake increases rapidly, then the patients do need a liver transplant but if the person controls the intake of alcohol, then improvements can be observed significantly and the patients may even survive for a long time even without getting the transplant done. But in certain cases, even after abstaining from alcohol, the damage is untreatable and healthy liver tissue cannot be restored, in such cases, liver transplant becomes a compulsion.
In children

In the case of children, biliary atresia is the most prominent reason for the liver transplant surgery. It is a very rare condition wherein the bile duct that connect the liver and the small intestine is either blocked or absent in newborn babies. Hence, the function of bile ducts, i.e. removal of bile juice from the liver gets hampered and obstructed bile leads to cirrhosis. The digestion of the food could not be carried out properly.
There can be several other reasons for liver transplantation such as the cancer in the liver or benign tumors that can be present in the liver. When a patient suffers from liver cirrhosis, the chances of acquiring the primary cancer increase by multiple times. The likelihood increases furthermore in those patients who have liver disorders along with hepatitis B. Mostly, after liver transplant surgery, patients are able to live their life normally, but if the cancer starts spreading to other body parts from the liver, then liver transplantation is not the solution.

Hi, I have eat 60 tablets of liv 52 ds for fatty liver but elevated alt and ast are not normal now so I have to eat more liv 52 ds or not any side effect of liv 52 ds tablets.

The normal treatment for fatty liver disease, whether it's alcohol-related or not, is to work toward a healthy weight through diet and exercise. Things you're likely to see on the table that you should reach for include: Fish ,Fruits,Grains,Nuts,Olive oil,Vegetables The Right Fats Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish, fish oil, vegetable oils, nuts (especially walnuts), flaxseeds and flaxseed oil, and leafy veggies. Monounsaturated fats are plentiful in plant sources, like olives, nuts, and avocados. Steer clear (avoid)of saturated fats, though. Eat less meat and fewer dairy products. Avoid baked goods and fried foods made with palm or coconut oils. Raw garlic may improve insulin resistance and help your body break down fats. Green tea, in experimental models, lowered weight gain, body fat levels, insulin resistance, and more. But it hasn't been tested in people yet. Goji berry (wolfberry), a plant often used in Chinese medicine, may slim your waist size. Resveratrol, which comes from the skin of red grapes, can help control inflammation. Conflicting studies suggest its effectiveness is related to how much you take. Selenium is a mineral found in Brazil nuts, tuna, and oysters. (Most people get enough in their diet.) Choose Your Carbs Complex carbohydrates, such as those with a lot of fiber, are safer Alcohol You shouldn't drink at all now if your fatty liver disease was caused by heavy drinking. It can lead to even more serious liver damage. If you have NAFLD, it's probably okay to have a drink once in a while, but not more than every other month. FOR MEDICATION CONSULT ONLINE IN PRIVATE

My liver size is 17. 2 cm. My height is 5 ft 10 inch. Have simple small cyst measuring 14 mm on right lobe. There is no mass or focal lesion on intrahepatic biliary radicles and hepatitis veins. And is normal. Gallbladder in good shape with no calculus or sludge. And All other organs no issues found as per abdomen usg. They say as per my height the liver size is Normal. The liver enzymes are in normal range. But bilirubin is 1.8 and my serum cholesterol is 296. One year ago it used to be 2.02 and 326 respectively. 2 months back I stopped whey protein consumption and my bowl movements normalized. Used to have two movements per day before that. Looks like when I stopped whey protein, figures started to get better. Also my stool colour used to be pale few months back and mostly shapeless. Now its better but gets occasional floating stools, infering impaired fat digestion. Stool colour improved but still not as dark as it used to be.  Wondering if the reason for high lipid and bilirubin could be due to block in ducts leading from liver to gall bladder. I appreciate a cause based treatment rather than symptom suppressing. Thank you.

Whey protein can cause gas, bloating and informed stools If you are not exercising enough to and consuming too much whey protein then you may put on weight, You have to cut down on sugar (sweet) carbohydrate intake, and reduce fat intake also to get improvement in lipid reports Continue exercising well and eat a healthy balanced diet.
