Cirrhosis of the liver: description, causes, classification, treatment, prevention

Many people think that cirrhosis of the liver occurs only because of drinking and other bad habits. However, in fact, the development of this disease has many other causes. Everyone should know about them, because this will avoid problems. My name is Eric Moscovich Ter-Sargsyan. For more than 50 years, I have been working for the benefit of humanity, developing affordable and, most importantly, truly effective bio-products. Today I will tell You about cirrhosis of the liver and its treatment.
Cirrhosis of the liver is a chronic pathology associated with destructive changes in the organ (shrinking and pronounced decrease in its function) and the appearance of scar tissue. Its development is preceded by various factors, such as chronic viral hepatitis, regular and prolonged use of alcoholic beverages, autoimmune disorders, cholangitis, etc. there are Even cases in which liver infections, chronic heart failure, etc. have led to the appearance and progression of cirrhosis.
General description and historical background
People from ancient times believed that the liver is as important an organ in the human body as the heart. The inhabitants of Mesopotamia were sure that the liver is responsible for the production of blood and is the "receptacle of the soul". Even Hippocrates was able to identify the relationship between liver diseases, ascites and jaundice. This was the first mention of cirrhosis of the liver and its inherent clinical manifestations.

Factors of development and symptoms of this disease were covered in detail by Matthew Bailly in 1793 in the contents of a treatise on morbid anatomy. The expert highlighted the link between alcohol consumption and the development of signs of cirrhosis. Bailly observed that this disease is often affected by middle-aged and older males. In England, cirrhosis was given its name - "gin plague".

The word "cirrhosis "is of Greek origin and is derived from the term" kirrhos " (yellow coloring). This is the name of the disease was due to the famous anatomist and doctor of French origin Rene Theophile Hyacinth laennec's.
Causes of occurrence

The following factors most often lead to the development of cirrhosis:
pathologies of the biliary tract
cholelithiasis, extrahepatic obstruction, cholangitis, etc.
viral form of hepatitis
it is proved that hepatitis G, D, C and B lead to the development of cirrhosis
immune pathologies
Budd-Chiari syndrome
venous blood stagnation in the liver structures
portal hypertension
intoxication with toxic substances
mushroom poisons, aflatoxins, metal salts, industrial chemicals
long-term course of anabolic steroids
Methotrexate, Isoniazid, Iprase and a number of other pharmaceutical products
alcoholism
long-term and regular consumption of alcoholic beverages (about 10 years), regardless of the type of alcoholic beverage. The determining factor is the presence of ethyl alcohol in its composition
Randu-Osler disease
the rarest cause of cirrhosis
There is also cryptogenic cirrhosis, the causes of which are still a mystery to doctors. Factors that activate and support the growth of connective tissue can be syphilis, infections, and prolonged starvation. The probability of cirrhosis increases at times by a mixed impact of external factors, for example, a combination of alcohol dependence and any form of hepatitis.

Classification of diseases
Medical specialists classify hepatic cirrhosis by morphological, morphogenetic, clinical and functional and etiological features. Taking into account the cause of development, there are such types of cirrhosis of the liver:
circulatory
developed as a result of venous blood stasis
biliary
cholangitis, cholestasis
viral
infectious lesions of the bile ducts, hepatitis, parasitic liver pathologies
metabolic and nutritional
avitaminosis, lack of proteins in the body, metabolic pathologies
toxic-allergic and toxic
alcoholic beverages, allergen substances, pharmaceutical products, industrial and food poisons
cryptogenic
Symptoms of pathology
The list of the first symptoms of cirrhosis includes the following manifestations:
  • in the oral cavity there is dryness and bitterness in the morning;
  • the patient's body weight decreases slightly;
  • the patient has flatulence and stool disorders , irritability and increased fatigue;
  • from time to time the patient has painful sensations in the area of the right hypochondrium;
  • many types of cirrhosis even in the initial stages of development manifest in the form of jaundice.
This is what a cirrhotic and healthy liver looks like:

Cirrhosis of the liver is accompanied by such General clinical signs as decreased performance, weakness, abdominal discomfort, increased temperature, joint pain, dyspeptic disorders, asthenia, weight loss. During the examination, the doctor revealed an increase in the size of the liver, the presence of deformities and seals on it. In the portal form of the disease, there is an increase in the size of the spleen.
Possible complication
As a rule, liver cirrhosis itself does not lead to a fatal outcome. The risk is associated with complications at the stage of decompensation. Similar complications include the following:
1
Ascites – the concentration of fluid in the peritoneum
In this case, the doctor prescribes a diet with minimal salt and protein, diuretic agents, and albumin injections. If necessary, excess fluid is pumped out of the peritoneum (paracentesis).
2
Spontaneous form of bacterial peritonitis
This pathology is an inflammatory process that is localized in the abdominal cavity, due to infection with ascites. The patient's body temperature increases significantly, and acute abdominal pain occurs. The doctor prescribes a long course of antibiotic therapy. The patient is referred to the intensive care unit.
3
Hepatic encephalopathy
This disorder can be manifested by neurological disorders and is a common cause of severe coma. Protein is completely excluded from the patient's diet, and lactulose is prescribed. For significant neurological disorders, the patient is referred to the intensive care unit.
4
Form of hepatocellular carcinoma
This problem is associated with a malignant liver neoplasm. In this case, a donor organ transplant may be prescribed.
5
Acute renal failure – hepatorenal syndrome
Diagnostic method
Diagnosis of the disease is carried out in stages. The exact diagnosis is determined based on information obtained during instrumental studies, such as:

  • computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging-allows you to achieve the most accurate results;
  • ultrasound examination-allows you to make only a preliminary diagnosis;
  • liver tissue biopsy-allows you to determine the type and cause of the pathology.
If the development factor of cirrhosis has not been established during histological studies, then a blood test is performed. Then the level of damage to the entire body as a result of liver disease is established. For this purpose, the patient is prescribed:

  • biochemistry of blood
  • scintigraphy of liver structures;
  • analysis of urea and creatinine levels to determine the severity of kidney damage.
The presence or absence of concomitant complications is determined by:

  • ultrasound examination (in order to exclude / confirm ascites);
  • analysis of fecal masses for the presence of blood veins;
  • rectoromanoscopy (to exclude / confirm varicose veins in the rectum.
Probing of the liver in cirrhosis is carried out through the anterior abdominal wall.
Treating illness
At the stage of decompensation, the patient is referred to a hospital, because in this case there is a high risk of developing acute, severe and deadly complications.
At the compensation stage, treatment begins with the elimination of the disease development factor.
The patient should follow a special diet. If this is not done, then cirrhosis can progress.
It is forbidden for cirrhosis of the liver to engage in courses of thermotherapy and perform physiotherapy. Also excludes the load of the physical plan.
At the stage of decompensation, the patient is sent to the hospital, because in this case there is a high risk of developing acute, severe and deadly complications.
Often, therapy for hepatic cirrhosis involves taking ursodeoxycholic acid and sodium, beta-blockers and hepatoprotectors.

Due to the fact that cirrhosis of the liver is accompanied by a marked decrease in the production of amino acids (including methionine – an important amino acid for the functioning of the body), the body needs to ensure their sufficient supply. This problem can be solved, for example, with the help of the preparation of the amino acid complex «ERGAMIN», which contains a whole complex of amino acids.

However, with liver damage, more methionine is still required, so Ergamine is recommended to be combined with the drug L-Methionine. This tool stimulates the metabolism and is used to restore and purify the liver. It contains L-methionine – an essential amino acid that is involved in the production of adrenaline. The advantages of the presented supplements can be listed for a long time. Here are just a few of them:

control the amount of liquid consumed;
try to normalize the frequency of stool up to 1-2 times a day.
Preventive recommendations
Liver cirrhosis develops for a long time. Fortunately, this disease can be treated and stopped. You can achieve success if you contact a doctor in a timely manner. But there are a number of tips that will prevent the development of the disease. These include the following prevention measures:

  • stabilization of the diet and nutrition regime;
  • vaccination against hepatitis B at an early age;
  • preventing overeating and starvation;
  • complete abstinence from nicotine and alcohol-containing beverages;
  • regular endoscopic and ultrasound examinations;
  • proper intake of vitamin products;
  • timely consultation with a doctor.
In addition to measures to prevent the development of hepatic cirrhosis, measures aimed at preventing the development of the viral form of hepatitis can also be attributed.

By following medical recommendations, following a healthy lifestyle, as well as taking medications L-Methionin and Ergamin, you can avoid cirrhosis and always feel healthy!
L-Methionin, an aliphatic basic sulfur-containing amino acid
Useful properties of L-Methionine:

- the main property is hepatoprotection of the liver, that is, protection from the harmful effects of toxins and prevention of many diseases.
- L-Methionine stimulates the regeneration of liver tissue;
- contains sulfur and thanks to the amino acid it gets into the body's tissues is well absorbed and promotes growth;
- is important for the synthesis of adrenaline; helps to process fat, reducing the load on the liver;
- prevents premature ejaculation;
- does not develop chronic depression;
- helps in the treatment of diseases of the infected urinary tract.
L-Methionine has been proven to be effective in the treatment of liver cirrhosis!
