NASH, Alcohol Now the Top Reasons for Liver Transplants
« on: June 08, 2020, 12:47:30 pm »
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and alcoholic liver disease (ALD) have overtaken hepatitis C as the most common causes of advanced liver disease among people awaiting liver transplants, according to new research.

Over years or decades, hepatitis B or C viruses (HBV and HCV), heavy alcohol use, fatty liver disease and other causes can lead to serious complications, including cirrhosis (advanced scarring), hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, the most common type of liver cancer) and end-stage liver failure that requires a transplant.
