What is Hepatic Encephalopathy?
Why it’s Important to Treat HE
HE is a serious but treatable condition if caught early and treated promptly. Symptoms often resolve when triggering factors are treated. It’s important to continue treatment for as long as necessary to keep HE from coming back.
Once symptoms become severe, HE can quickly worsen and become a medical emergency resulting in prolonged hospitalization. But with continuous treatment, HE can usually be controlled. So it’s important to tell your doctor about any warnings signs you have as soon as you, or a family member or friend, notice them.
