What is Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis? It is a disease of the bile ducts that causes inflammation and obliterative fibrosis of bile ducts inside and/or outside of the liver. This pathological process impedes the flow of bile to the intestines and can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, liver failure, and other complications, including bile duct and liver cancer. The underlying cause of the inflammation remains unknown. Some of the side effects are as followed. Adam does have all of these at this point.
Hepatic encephalopathy is a condition that causes temporary worsening of brain function in people with advanced liver disease. The toxins build up and can travel through your body until they reach your brain, causing mental and physical symptoms
Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers (sores) in your digestive tract.
Portal hypertension leads to the development of new veins that bypass the liver. These veins directly connect the portal blood vessels to veins that take blood away from the liver into the general circulation. Because of this bypass, substances that are normally removed from the blood by the liver can pass into the general circulation. Collateral vessels develop at specific places. the vessels enlarge and become full of twists and turns—that is, they become varicose veins in the esophagus) or stomach These enlarged vessels are fragile and prone to bleeding, sometimes seriously and occasionally with fatal results
Cirrhosis is a condition that results from permanent damage or scarring of the liver.
Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, which can lead to increased risk of fracture. Known as the “silent thief”, bone deterioration can occur over a number of years without any symptoms. Help find Adam a live donor.

Recovery Post-transplantion. Here is the frustration he has for his frail and failing body, the mental anguish he experiences with his slowed mental capacity from HE (hepatic encephalopathy), and the worry he has for our family's financial future. He still is the strongest man I know...physically, emotionally, and mentally. .

فقرة #معلومة_دوائية
. ***********
إذا جَاءَت (وصفة طبية ) من طبيب اخصائي موصوف فيها علاج Lactulose شراب لمريض لديه غيبوبة كبديه.
.
( hepatic encephalopathy) .

والمعروف عن الشراب هو يستخدم للإمساك!! .
إذاً ايش الفائدة من صرف شراب Lactulose
لمريض hepatic encephalopathy ؟
______________
الفائدة : هو أن مريض الكبد يصبح في حالة غيبوبة بسبب وصول #الأمونيا الى الدماغ لأن الكبد غير قادر ع التخلص منها
هنا يأتي دور شراب اللاكتلوز يقوم بتحويل #الأمونيا اللي لها القدرة على عبور حاجز الدماغ BBB الى مادة #الأمونيوم التي ليس لها القدرة على عبور BBB وبالتالي يتم التخلص منها 👍🏻 .

Those eyes scream save me! He fell down some stairs, thankfully he didn't tear or break anything. His liver disease and ascites are worse and making him very weak and unsteady. #heneedsprayers #unconditionallove #remythemaltese #animals #sick #liverdisease #hessuchagoodboy #hepaticencephalopathy #ourfirstbaby #family #firstborn #welovehim

Hepatic Encephalopathy. Up until 5 years ago, I had never even heard the term. But, we’re living it. It’s so hard to explain to people what it is. But once you’ve been with Dave during an episode, you understand. In the movie “The Notebook”, there’s the scene where the older Noah and Allie are dancing when she has a moment of lucidity then she snaps and everything changes. It’s heartbreaking and scary. This is what I can compare Hepatic Encephalopathy to. My beautiful, intelligent, articulate husband becomes lost to this monster of a disease. Sometimes it last 12 hrs, sometimes 72 hrs. But I always get him back. And there’s lots of tears and “I’m sorry” but, I know it’s not him. Not my David. It’s truly the monster that is HE. He’s been at Stage 3 since yesterday. Leaving him tonight just about broke me. Because he kept asking if he was going home with me. Everyone thinks I’m strong. I’m not. Tonight, tonight I think I am broken. #hepaticencephalopathy #liverdisease #liverdiseasesucks #liverdiseaseawareness

As some of you know, Luna was diagnosed with "Hepatic encephalopathy" earlier this year. Hepatic encephalopathy is when you digest proteins and instead of them being processed in your liver to Remove the ammonia, it attacks the brain....essentially shutting her down. Resulting in a loss of bladder, vomiting, and ultimately leading to a seizure. Hepatic encephalopathy comes without warning...There's NO way to stop it...the best we can do is limit her protein intake to an extent...but we never know when. Today, she had next to no protein. She should of been fine. She was not. As she always does, she busts into my room onto my bed and started shaking. Like last time, it only resulted in puking (this time ON me) and shaking. This mainly effects small dogs and the stereotypical "runt" of the litter (which she is). Luna is fine. No she does not need to go to the vet according to my veterinarian. If she ends up having more frequent seizure, she will have to get a liver shunt. I just want to bring awareness that this is a thing. We were told that it's nothing by our first vet. We were told her liver numbers were higher - that's it! Thank you to Dr.Luffler in streetsboro for helping us. I'll update on Luna later.
She's sleeping now.

I woke up to a ravenous Benny on the table, trying to eat the girls' food! ☺️ I served him his food, and he scarfed some of it down like old times! We are determined to beat this! Go, Benny! 😸 #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #catsarelife #catsarecool #cutecat #specialneedscat #specialneedskitty #livershunt #hepaticencephalopathy #kidneydisease #kitty #kittycat #kittyboy #meow #purr #hungrycat #benny #greyandwhitecat #ilovemycat #winning #catgram #catwoman #catsrule #catsofworld #myboy #mycat🐱 #mycat #kittypower #kittylove

To all the people my age who spend most nights a week in the pub, spend more time pissed than not and think they're able to "stop whenever I want", that's how my dad started, normal stuff, drinks with mates, a couple of cans when the football was on, then all of a sudden he wasn't as young as he used to be, and he couldn't stop, couldn't handle real life without it because he's cut himself off from reality for so long. Now he's in a hospital bed with stage 4 liver failure. He has ascites in his stomach and oedema in his legs which means they're about 3 times the size they are supposed to be, his blood sugar is at 23.9 (it should be 5), the toxins his liver are producing have reached his brain so he also has hepatic encephalopathy, he doesn't know who or where he is sometimes, he needs constant supervision and isn't the man I grew up knowing. On top of that, the hypertension caused by the liver not working properly have caused Varices, that burst and bleed profusely. They said that the final stage is a coma, and without a liver transplant, he will die. I just pray he will get to come home.
Please don't make the ones who love you watch you kill yourself, sort yourselves out, please ❤️
