Your hepatologist will begin by asking about your symptoms and how they affect you. They will ask about how your illness has developed and will ask about specific risk factors. These may include travel, dietary history, alcohol and drug use, family history, and coexisting medical problems. They will also ask about past medical problems and treatments to date and current medications. Allergies and social history are also important.
Liver disease can be caused by many different disease processes and can also result in many different widespread complications. The examination conducted by your hepatologist will be general. They usually begin by examining the finger nails, hands, arms, eyes and face, chest and then abdomen and liver specifically. Findings will guide the further investigations they order.
HealthEngine is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect. We believe that when we do this well, everyone benefits.
