Cirrhosis Overview
Cirrhosis is a chronic (ongoing, long-term) disease of the liver. It means damage to the normal liver tissue that keeps this important organ from working, as it should. If the damage is not stopped, the liver gradually loses its ability to carry out its normal functions. This is called liver failure, sometimes referred to as end-stage liver disease.

What is Cirrhosis?
Cirrhosis is a complication of many liver diseases that is characterized by abnormal structure and function of the liver. The diseases that lead to cirrhosis do so because they injure and kill liver cells, and the inflammation and repair that is associated with the dying liver cells causes scar tissue to form. The liver cells that do not die multiply in an attempt to replace the cells that have died.

This results in clusters of newly formed liver cells (regenerative nodules) within the scar tissue. There are many causes of cirrhosis; they include chemicals (such as alcohol, fat, and certain medications), viruses, toxic metals (such as iron and copper that accumulate in the liver as a result of genetic diseases), and autoimmune liver disease in which the body's immune system attacks the liver.

What are the Causes of Cirrhosis?
Cirrhosis can be caused by a number of conditions, including long-standing inflammation, poisons, infections, and heart disease, as well as chronic alcoholism and chronic hepatitis, the most common causes.

Chronic Alcoholism :
Alcohol can poison living cells, causing liver cells to become inflamed and die.
  • The death of liver cells leads your body to form scar tissue around veins of your liver. Healing liver cells form nodules, which also press on the liver veins.
  • This scarring process occurs in 10-20 percent of alcoholics and is the most common form of cirrhosis in the United States.
  • The severity of the process depends on how much you drink and how long you have been abusing alcohol. The amount of alcohol needed to injure the liver varies widely from individual to individual.
  • Some families are more susceptible to cirrhosis than others.
Hepatitis :
Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver from any cause, but it usually refers to a viral infection of the liver.
  • Over many years the inflammation damages liver cells and leads to scarring.
  • Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and hepatitis D all can cause cirrhosis.
  • Worldwide, hepatitis B is the most common cause of cirrhosis, but in the United States hepatitis C is a more common cause.
  • Biliary cirrhosis: Bile is a substance produced by the liver to help the body digest fats. If the ducts carrying bile out of liver get blocked it can cause inflammation of liver cells leading to cirrhosis.
Autoimmune Cirrhosis :
Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system instead begins to fight healthy body tissues and organs.In autoimmune hepatitis, the body's immune system attacks the liver, causing cell damage that leads to cirrhosis.

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver :
This is a condition in which fat builds up in the liver, eventually causing scar tissue to form It is associated with diabetes, obesity, coronary artery disease, protein malnutrition.It is sometimes called "Steatohepatitis."

Inherited Diseases :
A variety of genetic diseases can damage the liver.They include Wilson's disease, cystic fibrosis, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, hemochromatosis, galactosemia, and glycogen storage disease.

Drugs, Toxins, and Infections :
Various substances and germs can cause damage to the liver (for example, acetaminophen), poisons, and environmental toxins can lead to cirrhosis.

Cardiac Cirrhosis :
Your heart is a pump that pushes blood throughout your body. When your heart doesn't pump well, blood "backs up" into the liver. This congestion causes damage to your liver.

What are the Symptoms and Signs of Cirrhosis?
Patients with cirrhosis may have few or no symptoms and signs of liver disease. Some of the symptoms may be nonspecific, that is, they don't suggest that the liver is their cause. Some of the more common symptoms and signs of cirrhosis include:
  • Yellowing of the skin (jaundice) due to the accumulation of bilirubin in the blood
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Itching
  • Easy bruising from decreased production of blood clotting factors by the diseased liver.
Patients with cirrhosis also develop symptoms and signs from the complications of cirrhosis that are discussed next.

What are Complications of Cirrhosis?
  • Edema and ascites
  • Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP)
  • Bleeding from esophageal varices
  • Hepatic encephalopathy
  • Hepatorenal syndrome
  • Hepatopulmonary syndrome
  • Hypersplenism
  • Liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma)

How is Cirrhosis Diagnosed?
The steps in making the diagnosis of cirrhosis may include the following:
  • Blood tests - To check whether the liver is functioning normally. Lab findings can be normal in cirrhosis, however.
  • Ultrasound, CT scan, or radioisotope scan - To look for signs of cirrhosis within or on the surface of the liver
  • Laparoscope - A very tiny camera inserted through a small slit in the abdomen to view the liver directly
Liver biopsy - It is required so as too remove tissue from the liver and studying it under a microscope to identify fibrosis and scarring. Biopsy is the only way diagnosis can be 100% certain

What is the Role of Homoeopathy in Cirrhosis of liver?
As described in the article above causes Cirrhosis can form a complex disease state Homoeopathy follows an individualistic approach towards patients suffering from Cirrhosis we believe that every individual is different and thus a full in-depth case study is the first step. Then referring to the stage of disease and individual response a particular line of treatment is adopted. A broad criterion of how the homoeopathic medicines act in cases of Cirrhosis is mentioned below.

The response to treatment can differ from one individual to another depending upon the disease state. Patients are advised to consult so that the mode of treatment can be discussed pertaining to their particular case.

Homoeopathy medicines act by;
Relieves Symptoms like :
  • Myalgia (muscle pain)
  • Arthralgia (joint pain)
  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • Anorexia (having no appetite)
  • Changes in your normal sense of smell and taste accompany anorexia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever (usually low-grade and most common in hepatitis A and E)
  • Pain in the upper belly on the right side, usually mild and constant
  • Jaundice
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Light-colored stools
  • Liver/spleen enlargement
  • Ascites
Controlling and reversing the underlying Disease process :
Homoeopathic medicines have proven their efficacy in all sought of liver conditions and help by reviving the liver cells and helping in restoring their functions back to normal. It helps by increasing patients immune response thus reducing the virus load and improving the overall health of liver.
  • If homoeopathic treatment is sought early it helps in preventing the progress of disease and preventing any complications (Liver failure, cancer) from occurring, which are usually associated with the disease.
  • We at DRSS provide our patients with diet charts, exercise schedules and guide them how to modify their lifestyle so that better results can be achieved.
  • Our medicines can be started with conventional treatment depending upon the disease state and case.
  • Homoeopathic medicines if taken under proper guidance from a well-qualified professional are extremely safe and have no side effects
