Over the past few years, the number of people in India suffering from liver disease is more than ever. In fact, as per the Indian Council of Medical Research, nearly 33% of Indians have liver disease. If these liver problems are left untreated, it leads to more serious liver conditions such as liver fibrosis and cirrhosis, which render the liver to not function properly. Liver cirrhosis is one of the leading causes of death across the world, which accounts for the death of nearly 200,000 people in India each year.
Do you know which is the most common cause of chronic liver problems? It is NAFLD – Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, a condition that results from unhealthy eating habits, a sedentary lifestyle, and is more common to individuals with the tendency to store fat around their stomach. Also, people with lipid and blood sugar problems are more susceptible to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.
Apart from this, excessive intake of alcohol and infections like Hepatitis B & C also lead to chronic liver disease. The worst thing is that most people with fibrosis and cirrhosis don’t show any symptoms. By the time symptoms become visible, such as encephalopathy, ascites, jaundice, and gastrointestinal bleeding, the liver problem would have already reached the advanced stage. As a result, the surviving chances of the patient reduce remarkably. Thus, early detection is crucial, so that the patient gets timely treatment to prevent further progression of the disease, which increases the patient’s lifespan.
A few years from now, a biopsy was the only best method used to detect liver cirrhosis. This diagnostic procedure is invasive and expensive and is associated with various complications. Thanks to medical science and technology, today, we have an advanced technique “fibroscan” that offers a more accurate and non-invasive diagnosis of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis.
We, at Tricity Healthcare, have been helping people with early detection of liver disease or liver stiffness using state-of-the-art, Fibroscan. As compared to other diagnostic centers, we offer this test at a competitive price, while providing you with non-invasive, immediate and painless detection of liver diseases. Fibroscan is usually recommended to patients, whether male, female and kids, having fatty liver to diagnose liver fibrosis and cirrhosis.
We hope that our unique team’s expertise and spirit of humanity will put you at ease and get you the results you want.
