Summary

Liver and gallbladder diseases - for example gallstones, jaundice, hepatitis, and alcohol-related conditions - are extremely common throughout the world. This book presents the facts as they are currently known, in a clear and non-technical manner for patients and their families. The second edition of this popular book has been expanded and re-written to cover the considerable advances in knowledge over the last five years, particularly in relation to gallstones, viral hepatitis, and liver transplantation. This accessible work covers the normal function of the liver and gallbladder, describes the tests used to detect abnormality, and outlines the major diseases. It discusses available treatment, and answers the questions most frequently asked by patients and relatives. Also, a section on self-help groups and charitable organizations has been added. Sufferers of liver disease and their families, as well as the physicians who treat them, will find this easy to read guide a practical resource for understanding liver disease.
