Hepatologist Treatments

Hepatology refers to the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas disorders. The prevalence of liver-related diseases such as cirrhosis, fatty liver disease and hepatitis remains high, and millions of individuals globally experience the impact of these conditions annually.

Hence, hepatologists remain vital players in the delivery of healthcare services to patients with significant liver, bile duct, or pancreas disorders. By leveraging their expertise, the medical professionals evaluate patients’ symptoms, perform diagnostic tests, and recommend appropriate treatment options to alleviate or manage the symptoms associated with the conditions mentioned above.

Overall, hepatology remains an essential aspect of medical practice in the contemporary era, given the heightened global prevalence of liver-related complications.

Reasons to See a Hepatologist

Hepatitis affects millions of individuals globally and is associated with several poor outcomes including liver transplant and liver cancer. In particular, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are major causes of liver cancer, while alcohol abuse has been linked to conditions such as cirrhosis and other serious complications.

Over two billion individuals have been infected with hepatitis B at some point and around 350 million people are persistent carriers. With widespread vaccination and blood screening, the incidence of hepatitis B has significantly decreased. However, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are accountable for up to 80% of liver cancer cases.

Do I have a liver condition?

Liver problems can manifest in various forms and could be caused by different factors including alcohol consumption, viral infections, or blockage of bile ducts. Examples of fatty liver disease include nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFL) or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), both of which result from the storage of excess fat in liver cells.

Besides these forms of liver disease, other conditions like primary biliary cholangitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis may also affect the liver. It is essential to understand that these conditions can be severe and action should be taken promptly by seeing a healthcare professional if you experience any symptoms such as abdominal pain, jaundice, or unexplained fatigue.

Diagnosis and Treatment options

Diagnosis and treatment begin with an appointment with a specialist hepatologist. You may require multiple visits and numerous tests to enable our doctors to make a specific diagnosis, and each test will be properly explained to you.

If the tests are invasive, such as a liver biopsy or endoscopic procedure, you will be given enough time to discuss the process and provide your consent before it takes place. You will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have with our healthcare professionals and loved ones, and you will also have sufficient time to ask any questions that come up.

In the event that you do receive a diagnosis of liver disease, you will be given guidance on how to slow down its progression and receive the appropriate treatment.

Key Factors

Taking care of your overall health is essential, especially as you get older. While the liver is only one organ, it keeps your body running smoothly on a regular basis. In taking care of your liver, it’s important to keep these notes in mind:

It starts with you. Your current diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices will define your current health condition and the health of your liver. With proper diet, exercise, and moderate drinking, you’ll be able to keep your liver functioning well.

It can be genetic, too. Liver problems can also be caused by genetic conditions. If your family has a history of different liver diseases and even liver cancer, you should schedule regular consultations with our hepatologist to help you understand your current health condition to help prevent any disease from occurring.

When in doubt, visit a doctor. Symptoms can present differently depending on your current condition, so it’s really not a good practice to assume your diagnosis. If the symptoms persist, visit your doctor for a liver consultation.

At 365 Diagnostics, we are ready to provide the quality medical care you need to take care of your liver and yourself. Whether it’s an endoscopy, a fibroscan, or a regular doctor consultation, you can book an appointment with us to take care of your healthcare needs.
