How to do next if liver disease progresses to cirrhosis?
How to do next if liver disease progresses to cirrhosis? Liver cirrhosis is not terrible. The key is to have a correct attitude and scientific and reasonable treatment to achieve a good effect.
Many people have an inexplicable fear of liver cirrhosis, thinking that liver cirrhosis is not long alive, and that liver cirrhosis is not saved. Some people are pessimistic, disappointed, and depressed, but let the disease progress. So what should I do if I have liver cirrhosis?
When it comes to treating cirrhosis, it is necessary to understand why cirrhosis occurs.
Liver cirrhosis is caused by many factors, mainly hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, alcohol, obesity, drugs, autoimmunity and other factors, which act on liver cells, causing repeated chronic inflammation of the liver, and eventually leading to the gradual shrinkage and change of liver Hard, which leads to the occurrence of liver cirrhosis.
I have repeatedly said before that liver inflammation is like inflammation on the hands, which will cause scars. To treat liver cirrhosis, one is to remove the cause, one is to protect the liver and fight inflammation, and the other is to treat these already formed liver fibrosis. Of course, there is still a problem with chronic liver disease that is weakened immunity, so it is necessary to cooperate with drugs to improve immunity.
For patients with liver cirrhosis, we should also pay attention to the following life problems.
1. Establish a correct attitude, not pessimistic, not negative.
With active treatment, many people have found cirrhosis of the liver. Two situations are prone to occur. One is to rush to the doctor and use drugs indiscriminately.
One is negative treatment and psychological fear. In fact, liver cirrhosis is not an incurable disease. You must have a good attitude and go to a regular liver disease hospital for scientific and reasonable treatment. Cirrhosis of the liver is a chronic disease, and establishing a good attitude is extremely important for controlling the disease.
2. Take medicine on time and review regularly.
Inspection and treatment are equally important. Some patients feel that it is not cost-effective to spend money on examinations and are unwilling to do the examination. In fact, examinations for patients with liver cirrhosis are equally important.
The examination items include liver and kidney function, electrolytes, viral load, abdominal B-ultrasound, alpha-fetoprotein, etc. This is the basis for diagnosis and evaluation of curative effect, and doctors can only adjust the treatment plan according to changes in indicators.
3. Persist in treatment and never give up.
It takes good compliance and persistence to win. Cirrhosis of the liver is a chronic disease, and the formation of the disease does not occur overnight, and the recovery naturally does not occur overnight.
Clinically, I am most afraid that the patient’s already stable condition will be aggravated again due to drug withdrawal or intermittent medication.
Hepatitis B liver cirrhosis insists on anti-virus is necessary, only by insisting on medication can control and delay the development of the disease.
4. Eat a balanced diet, eat less and more meals, and chew slowly.
Patients with liver cirrhosis usually have a balanced diet, do not eat hard food, and do not eat too much to prevent gastrointestinal bleeding.
Pay attention to the quality of sleep, maintain smooth stools, and proper activities are all necessary for the recovery of liver cirrhosis.
In short, liver cirrhosis is not terrible. The key is to have a correct attitude and scientific and reasonable treatment to achieve a good effect.
