Liver disease and liver failure are usually treated by specialists called hepatologists.
Treatment of liver failure depends on whether it is acute or chronic.
For chronic liver failure, treatment includes changes to the diet and lifestyle, including:
Avoiding alcohol or medications that can harm the liver
Eating less of certain foods, including red meat, cheese and eggs
Weight loss and control of metabolic risk factors, including high blood pressure and diabetes
Cutting down on salt in the diet.
