 Alcoholics & liver transplantation

One of the most important organ we have in our body is the liver. It helps our body from breaking down and also helps remove bad toxins from our body. It is also acutely helpless to alcohol. Reason for many lethal liver disease is alcohol. Diseases like hepatitis (liver inflammation) and cirrhosis are caused as a result of alcohol. Almost 70% of patients who have alcohol hepatitis develop cirrhosis (scarring of liver). This is one of the most common cause of death.

 People who refrain from drinking alcohol can easily recover from alcohol hepatitis however going for liver surgery can save their life. Because of this, one of every five cases are credited to alcohol drinkers. People who go for early liver transplant survive a lot longer (especially chronic hepatitis and those who are not responding to medical therapy).

 Patients who have Laennec's cirrhosis, which includes patients diagnosed with alcoholic cirrhosis might be contemplated for transplant if they are meeting fundamental conditions for moderation, as well as recovery. The current benchmark is:

- No alcohol for at least 6 months
- Regular blood testing.
- Involvement in ongoing unofficial alcohol behavior programs
- Acceptable psychosocial maintenance based on the benchmark set by the psychiatry experts and social services

 Patients who are not meeting the above mentioned criteria’s can be allowed a chance to abide by the requirements and undertake the evaluation again. Additionally, an official response resulting from the related psychiatry professional is compulsory in order to evaluate the probabilities of resuming to alcohol use.
