A disease of the liver, cirrhosis is the 12th leading cause of death in the United States, usually caused by hepatitis C infection or chronic alcoholism. It occurs during the most advanced stages of liver disease and is characterized by severe scarring of the liver. Symptoms include abdominal swelling, cognitive impairment, nose bleeds, jaundice, anorexia, weight loss, and itchy skin, just to name a few. If your elderly loved one has reached the stage of decompensated cirrhosis, with symptoms such as internal bleeding and fluid in the belly, he is at risk for life-threatening complications and will need a liver transplant. A-1 Home Care in Century City will help you or your elderly loved one adjust to changes in lifestyle and diet while you stick to the doctor’s treatment plan.
