Knowing cirrhosis and treatment options
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 liver diseases such as viral hepatitis, alcoholic hepatitis, NAFLD (fatty liver), NASH and others.
Regular monitor is key
In most cases, cirrhosis have no symptoms in the early stages of the diseases; therefore patients with chronic liver disease should have regular monitoring to check for any signs of cirrhosis. However, as the disease progresses, a person may experience the following symptoms:
- loss of appetite
- weight loss
- ascites (buildup of fluid in the abdomen)
- edema (swelling in the feet, ankles, or legs)
- jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes)
How to check for cirrhosis?
Cirrhosis is usually diagnosis by a combination of physical examinations, blood test, imaging tests and sometimes a liver biopsy. Imaging tests are generally very accurate and do not require taking any liver samples, and these tests include Ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI.
In a liver function test, the levels of liver enzymes are often used to measure the level of damage in the liver; a high ALT number could often mean chronic liver disease and liver damage. However,
in cirrhosis patients, the level of ALT could appear within the normal range, but this does not imply a the liver is healthy,
as most of the liver cells turned into scan tissues, there is no production of ALT liver enzymes, causing the ALT liver enzymes to be normal but actually, there is a limited liver function.
Is cirrhosis reversible?
Cirrhosis is thought to be irreversible until recent years researchers found otherwise.
There is currently no medications treatment for cirrhosis (directly); usually, treatments recommended by Doctors is aimed at treating the causes. The goals of treatment are to slow the progression of tissue scarring in the liver and prevent complications, especially in the early stages.
If the aim to treat the scar tissues directly, a patient must seek for other types of treatment options, such as YHK Therapy; a scientifically based liver therapy, made by natural ingredients with the US patented formula.
This Japanese liver treatment is proven in multiple research testing and clinical studies, it has been in the Japanese market for more than 25 years and often uses by people with chronic liver problems.
Clinical studies and research data found that YHK contains anti-inflammation and anti-fibrosis properties that can effectively heal damaged liver cells and reverse early stages of liver scarring.
Instead of treating the causes, YHK therapy can provide extra support to the liver, preventing further damages in the liver and enhance the recovery of scar tissues.

How to use YHK to reduce scarring in the liver?
The development of cirrhosis usually takes years or even decades to form, and it is not a quick process to reduce the scarring in the liver. When using YHK to reduce scarring in the liver, using users will require to use it for some time, and effects of YHK can be monitored with liver function test or scanning.
The recommended dosage for reducing liver scarring:
6 Tablets/ day for 4-6 months.
* Take liver function test and imaging test before and after use to check for improvement.
Reviews of YHK therapy:
- * All research and clinical data should be used as reference purposes only, results may vary.
