Can liver damage and fibrotic liver tissues be reversed after hepatitis C treatment?

Can liver damage and fibrotic liver tissues be reversed after hepatitis C treatment?

Chronic hepatitis C is a slow and progressive disease that causes liver inflammation, fibrosis and cirrhosis. Over a long period of time, hepatitis virus can cause long term damage that is often thought to be irreversible. But recent research is suggesting otherwise, that fibrotic or cirrhotic liver is reversible, allowing patients to regain liver function and improve health.

The danger of cirrhosis

Cirrhosis is end stage liver fibrosis, it is a complication of many liver diseases characterised by abnormal structure and function of the liver (scar tissue). Cirrhosis also means limited liver function, where many critical functions are affected, including the production of substances required by the body, and removal of toxic substances that can be harmful to the body, such as drugs. The liver also has an important role in regulating the supply of sugar and fat that the body uses as fuel.

There are two stages of cirrhosis: compensated cirrhosis in which the liver still functions, and decompensated cirrhosis in which the liver shuts down. Life threatening risks of cirrhosis include ascites, renal failure, hepatic encephalopathy, viatical bleeding and liver cancer.

Reversing liver cirrhosis

For many years cirrhosis was thought to be irreversible, but recent studies have confirmed that if you have fibrosis - or even cirrhosis - and are treated and cured of hep C, the development of fibrosis will stop, and fibrosis will be reversed in the majority of patients. Liver damage reversal is possible even when cirrhosis has developed. A recent review of multiple studies found that 53 percent of patients who were cured of hep C had regression of cirrhosis. [1]

Another study on YHK liver therapy that looks at patients with fibrosis over a short period of time during their use of YHK has similar findings. The fibrosis score of people who were treated with YHK has significantly decreased, some even achieved a score that indicates no fibrosis, meaning normal liver function was regained. [2][3]

Post treatment care, prevent aggressive liver cancer

Hep C can now be cured by oral medications in as little as eight weeks with few side effects. However, after DAA treatment, patients still face an increased risk of aggressive liver cancer. This is why the need for post treatment recovery of liver function is essential, especially for patients with cirrhosis. In addition, many hep C patients who were cured are still feeling unwell as their body is under recovery, therefore post treatment liver protection and reversing cirrhosis is the key to complete recovery. [4]

Reversing cirrhosis not only helps you to regain liver function but also protect your liver by limiting the risks of liver cancer.

Over the years, the goal of hepatitis C antiviral treatments has been straightforward – to bring down viral load to a level as low as possible. And because of this, it is not surprising to see that patients are constantly looking for ways to lower their viral count. We have always had the perception that clear of the virus means clear of liver disease, since the virus is what causes our liver to be sick in the first place. But does low viral load really equals better liver hea
Alcohol has silently become a global pandemic, causing a sharp rise in alcohol-related liver diseases such as alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD). In fact, there is a 65% increase in deaths from liver cirrhosis since 1999 and 44% of all liver-related deaths in the US are attributed to alcohol. According to recent research data by American Liver Foundation, an approximate of 88,000 Americans lost their lives yearly by drinking way too much alcohol. While all these research data give

The liver carries out essential functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making new blood and other vital nutrients. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The loss of liver cells turns into scar tissue which prevents the liver working normally, reducing or in some cases, completely losing liver function. Cirrhosis is a long-term chronic liver damage; it is often caused by chronic live
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.   What does high ALT indicate? ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up. Therefore, by measuring the
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is a type of enzyme found in liver cells. When the liver cells are functioning normally, the ALT enzymes should be contained within the liver cells.    You can imagine each liver cells as a balloon, and the ALT enzymes are the air inside the balloon. When the balloon is damaged, the air will be released. And when the liver cells is damaged, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, therefore we are able to find out the l
Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
