Liver Diseases Treatment in Karol Bagh, Delhi

Introduction to liver care

The liver is a vital organ. It handles various bodily functions including detoxification (removal of waste products from your body), digestion of food, production of protein, iron, glucose, clotting of blood, and protein metabolism (conversion of food to energy). Certain factors like alcohol, viruses, or obesity can affect your liver.

Cirrhosis, hepatitis, fatty liver disease, liver cancer, autoimmune conditions, genetic conditions, and liver failure are some common liver diseases that require liver care. If not treated in time, they can damage your liver leading to scarring (cirrhosis), and later liver failure. Timely treatment is essential for the early identification and treatment of liver diseases.
