Hepatic encephalopathy

It is a complication in cirrhotic patients and is considered to be a deterioration of mental activity showing signs of confusion and disorientation. The main cause of hepatic encephalopathy is failure of the liver, which has difficulty processing the build-up of products from protein breakdown.

Ascites, weight and steatosis

Ascites is the accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity. its main cause is excessive sodium retention, it is one of the complications responsible for cirrhosis, Its treatment requires dietary sodium restriction.

Hepatic steatosis, or fatty liver, is the buildup of fat in liver cells. It remains an obstacle to the success of HCV treatment and is present in most patients with hepatitis C.
