End Stage Liver Disease

Liver damage is progressive, which means that over time (without diagnosis or successful treatment), it can lead to cirrhosis or end-stage liver disease (ESLD).  ESLD is also known as chronic liver failure.

ESLD can be caused by many things, including but not limited to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, ongoing fatty liver* that leads to NASH (Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis), now called metabolic dysfunction associated steatohepatitis or MASH, excessive alcohol use, hereditary liver diseases and more.

People with ESLD may develop complications as the liver loses its ability to do its many jobs. 

*Fatty liver disease has been newly renamed to steatotic liver disease
