Importance Of Preventive Health Checkup For Your Liver

Liver Diseases

Prevention is the key to fight against liver diseases. Prevention of liver diseases works in 2 ways:

  • Keep liver disease risks low or at bay for those who don’t have liver disease
  • Appropriate tests and treatment for those who have been diagnosed with liver disease so that liver function can be optimized and damage is controlled

Liver has the ability to regenerate itself when it is healing from a disease. However, if it suffers major damage, it loses its ability to regenerate, and can also result in liver failure. Preventive health checkups help in catching such complications at an early stage, when there is a possibility for treatment and save life.

Knowing the progression of liver disease can help you in understanding why preventive care is so important:

  1. Inflammation - There are no signs that indicate it is because of liver disease that is why preventive screening tests are quite essential
  2. Fibrosis - Long term inflammation results in fibrosis. Proper treatment can cure this condition
  3. Chronic liver disease/Cirrhosis - Severe form of fibrosis that can further cause liver cancer
  4. Liver Cancer - Early detection can aid in forming a treatment plan that helps to recover from liver cancer
  5. Liver failure - Advanced stage of liver disease where the liver loses its functions. Liver transplant is the only survival option

Screening tests for liver disease:

  • Liver function panel (liver panel)
  • Liver enzyme tests
  • Antibody tests
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Ultrasound
  • Elastography

Who needs preventive screening for liver disease?

  • Those who have health conditions like diabetes, high triglycerides, hypertension, gallbladder disease, or anemia
  • If experiencing the signs of a liver dysfunction
  • Heavy alcohol drinkers
  • Those who have a family history of liver disease
  • Those who are already diagnosed with liver disease

Liver diseases can not only make you very sick but also can be traumatizing and threatening for your life. Identifying these risks at an early stage can help in providing appropriate treatment and save the liver functions.
