How are you today?
Cirrhosis is scarring (fibrosis) of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The scar tissue prevents the liver working properly. Your liver may keep working even when you have cirrhosis. However, cirrhosis can eventually lead to liver failure, and you can get serious complications, which can be life threatening.
In the UK, the most common causes of cirrhosis are: drinking too much alcohol over many years being infected with hepatitis for a long time, particularly hepatitis B or hepatitis Ca severe form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, where the liver becomes inflamed from a build-up of excess fat.
Do you have cirrhosis? How were you diagnosed? What was the primary cause? Were you treated? What was your treatment?
