The number of liver patients has been steadily increasing over the past few years. Most of the time, we ourselves are responsible for liver diseases with unhealthy habits. Prevention is better than cure. Lifestyle modifications like regular exercise, avoiding unhygienic food and alcohol is the key to a healthy liver. Continuing with these habits leads to worsening of the situation and patients land in life-threatening emergencies. One of the most common reasons that necessitates emergency liver transplant is acute liver deterioration due to treatment by a quack.”
