Treatments

  • Oral Medications

    Your GI doctor may prescribe an oral (by mouth) medicine that you take to manage the symptoms of your liver disease.

  • Lifestyle Modifications

    Limit alcohol consumption. Get vaccinated for hepatitis A and B. Maintain a healthy weight, as obesity can cause non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

  • Avoid Risky Behavior

    Avoid practices that put you in contact with other people’s blood and bodily fluids. For example, if you do drugs don’t share needles, use a condom during sex, and be sure needles used for piercings or tattoos are clean.

Tests

  • Blood Test

    A blood test can check for specific liver problems or genetic conditions.

  • Imaging Test

    Imaging tests such as computerized tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or ultrasound can show liver damage.

  • Biopsy

    Your GI doctor removes a small tissue sample (biopsy) for further analysis in the laboratory to aid in diagnosis.
