Cirrhosis: a practical guide to management provides gastroenterologists and hepatologists with an up-to-date clinical guide presenting the very best evidence-based practice in the diagnosis, treatment and management of liver cirrhosis and its many complications. Designed to offer practical guidance at all times, it provides doctors with an extremely useful tool in the clinical setting, with each chapter featuring diagnostic/management algorithms, key points and other pedagogic features. Divided into 2 parts, a diagnosis and pathophysiology section and a management of complications section, key topics include: – Diagnostic laboratory tests – Diagnostic imaging modalities – Acute-on chronic liver failure – Agents and drugs to avoid – End stage liver failure: liver transplant evaluation – Hepatocellular carcinoma Aimed at the specialist, as well as the practicing trainee at the top-end of specialty training, the emphasis throughout is on providing optimum clinical management guidance most relevant to practicing hepatologists and gastroenterologists, and is an invaluable guide to this increasingly common condition.
Inadequate habits in lifestyle, either by an unbalanced diet, associated or not with sedentary lifestyle, culminating in a number of clinical conditions, such as dyslipidemia, obesity, type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and hypertension. The diagnosis of three or more risk factors are called metabolic syndrome, a major cardiovascular risk factor. Lack of time combined with high world demand for labor promotes the search for food like "fast food". The binomial chronic consumption of fat and sugar reflect an important alert in the development of silent diseases, such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD is a reversible condition where large vacuoles fat accumulates in the liver cells. The most common causes are excessive alcohol intake, obesity and T2DM. However, high intake of foods rich in fat and/or sugar, especially sugar, lead to similar changes to intake alcohol in liver. In other words, the fatty liver may progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The study of the magnitude of the effects of liver disorders mediated by nutritional imbalance is fundamental in the attempt to establish preventive and therapeutic strategies.
