Jaundice can also be a symptom of cirrhosis. Jaundice is a not-so-rare condition in which your skin and white areas of your eyes become yellowish. The patient will also experience extreme fatigue, weakness, and itching.
The factors which make the cirrhosis more complicated are deteriorating brain function, high blood pressure, the build-up of fluid in the abdomen, progressive kidney failure, vein bleeding or rupturing, and infection.
The patient cannot experience the symptoms if the cirrhosis is at its early stages. If this is the case, the person can be diagnosed with cirrhosis if he has undergone testing for some other condition. Well, the best diagnosing of cirrhosis is done by biopsy.
If the doctor is treating the cirrhosis, fortunately, the progression of the cirrhosis can be slowed down in your body. Timely treatment is essential for curing cirrhosis as it can also help in reducing the risk of liver cancer. The doctor can even manage the complications, which are linked with the disease, by using interventional techniques. The interventional medical imaging techniques involve radiological image guidance procedures like CT and MRI.
If these treatments are not working, the only option which is available for the well-being of the patient is a liver transplant.
