Liver-related health problems are unique in that they do not cause discomfort, unless they are acute, which does not happen very often. Liver conditions are usually chronic. They start off silently and continue their destructive action for years, without the person knowing they are sick. When the symptoms appear (pain, jaundice, fever, ascites, etc.), they point to cirrhosis or liver cancer and are associated with reduced life expectancy. It is estimated that 320,000 people in Greece have been infected by the hepatitis B virus and 120,000 by the hepatitis C virus, while 1 in 50 people in Europe have contracted hepatitis B or C, according to the World Health Organization. However, chronic viral hepatitis infections are not the leading hepatic problem in the country.
In Greece, as is the case with other Western countries, sedentary lifestyle and binge eating are linked to increasing rates of obesity, diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome. These conditions are closely associated with the presence of fatty liver and steatohepatitis, even in patients with no history of alcohol abuse. Steatohepatitis is on the rise in Greece and is comparable in frequency to cirrhosis, liver cancer and chronic viral liver diseases. All these strongly suggest the need for prevention, regular check-ups and treatment of any liver condition as early as possible. The Euroclinic Hepatology Department aims at prevention, diagnosis and treatment of liver conditions.
