Main description:

Written by leading experts in liver pathology, this book explores the critical role of nutrition and diet therapy in liver conditions as defined by current research. It covers general nutrition support for the functional liver and presents findings on several chronic liver conditions including alcoholism, immune system disorders, metabolic and viral diseases, non-alcoholic steatosis, cancer, and other non-specific conditions. It offers recommendations for the delivery of macronutrients and micronutrients in maintaining a healthy liver, includes information on nutrition and the aging liver, and discusses nutrition for adult and pediatric transplant patients.
