What is diffuse liver changes?
Diffusive changes in the liver are determined after ultrasound examination of the abdominal cavity, however this term does not indicate the diagnosis of any disease. Thus, attention is focused on the increase in functional tissue, parenchyma. This diffuse change can be sclerotic, hypertrophic, fibrous, dystrophic and swelling. Diffuse liver change means that for some reason, from a variety of possible, some changes in liver tissue have been found that need to be further inspected. And that's all.

The tactics of treatment are determined by the causes of pathology. If the influence on the liver of bad habits, poor diet and lifestyle is determined, these factors should be fundamentally eliminated, and then begin treatment with hypoprotective agents that regenerate liver tissue by accelerating the division of healthy hypotocytes.
In case of a viral infection, the necessary antiviral drugs are prescribed. Proper nutrition in the period of liver problems is given special attention. For the hepatic patients, table No. 5 is prescribed. However, all these treatment courses should be carried out exclusively for the intended purpose and under the supervision of the physician.
