Outpatient management of alcohol-related liver disease

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Alcohol-related liver disease has become the leading indication for liver transplantation in the USA, partly due to an increase in the prevalence of high-risk drinking behaviour and alcohol use disorder, particularly among young women. Achieving sustained alcohol abstinence might not only prevent the development and progression of alcohol-related liver disease, but could also lead to clinically significant improvements, even in the advanced stages of disease. In this Series paper, we discuss the diagnosis and outpatient management of alcohol-related liver disease, with an emphasis on treatment options for alcohol use disorder and the assessment of nutritional status.
