Liver Super Speciality Clinic

WHY DO YOU NEED A LIVER CLINIC?

Liver is the body’s second largest organ situated in the upper right part of the abdomen just below the diaphragm and protected by the rib cage. Liver performs many essential functions related to digestion, metabolism, immunity, and the storage of nutrients within the body. Damage to the liver, means all these vital physiological functions are impeded.

 

Out of 1.2 billion people in India, at least one in 5 Indians is living with some kind of liver problem. As per WHO, a group of infectious diseases known as hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E affects millions of people worldwide, causing acute and chronic liver disease and killing close to 1.4 million people every year. Liver Disease Deaths in India have reached 2, 08,185, which means liver disorders are responsible for 2.31 % of the total deaths in the country.

 

Therefore, it is important to educate the general public about the important role the liver plays and how to maintain a healthy liver. Our Liver Super Speciality Clinic aims to provide holistic approach in the management of patients with complex liver diseases.

LIVER DISEASE : A SILENT KILLER

Most of the diseases including viral hepatitis B, C, fatty liver disease due to alcohol or non-alcohol fatty liver disease are silent and do not produce any symptoms. It is advisable to diagnose them early because if left untreated this can result in permanent scarring (cirrhosis) of liver. Liver Cirrhosis can cause life threatening complications like jaundice, bleeding, water accumulation and abdomen and liver cancer. Therefore, Routine Liver Health Check is also a significant part of our Liver Super Speciality Clinic.

 

WHY SHOULD I GO FOR LIVER HEALTH CHECK?

  • 42 million people suffer from Hepatitis B, i.e., 5% of population
  • 12 million people suffer from Hepatitis C
  • Burden of Hepatitis C is twice of HIV population. Both Hepatitis B and C, spread in the same way as HIV
  • 8 million Indians are reported to have Alcohol Related Liver Disease
  • 144 million people suffer from fatty liver disease, i.e., 12% of population
  • 1.5 million people suffer from cirrhosis of liver
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma of liver is the 4th most common cause of cancer in the world

 

There is a huge burden of silent liver diseases in India. Many of us opt for routine health check-up. However, it is difficult to identify a silent liver disease in a general body health check. Also, silent liver disorder, though advance may not produce any symptom, which makes it again difficult to detect it at an early stage. This is where a routine liver health check plays a significant role. Our Routine Liver Health Check package aims to diagnose all types of liver problems to prevent the advancement of the disease and holistic management of the existing pathological condition.
