Preparing for Treatment

Hepatic Encephalopothy

Once it’s determined that you’re eligible for treatment, you’ll want to know everything you can about the recommended therapy so that you can be prepared and plan accordingly: How long does treatment last, how do you take the medications, what side effects can you expect, can you work while on treatment? We make sure you’re prepared to talk about treatment options with your healthcare professional by providing you with a list of questions to bring to your appointment. This will help ensure you make the best use of your time during your visit and leave feeling like a well-educated consumer.
