Treatment of Liver Failure
People with acute liver failure and its complications require hospital admission and treatment in the intensive care setting.
Chronic liver failure is monitored and treated in accordance with the underlying cause in specialist liver clinics. Episodes of worsening failure may be treated in hospital to alleviate symptoms and slow disease progression. Eventually a time will be reached when, for some people, liver transplantation is considered to be the only option; for others further treatment will be purely symptomatic or palliative.
