Information for people with liver disease who must follow a high-protein, high-energy, reduced-salt diet.

Classification: DT (Dietitian)

Advice is complex, condition specific and requires a Dietitian with knowledge, skills and experience in the condition.

The pack of leaflets aims to limit the progression of damage to the liver, which leads to cirrhosis and risks decompensation of the liver and liver failure.

To help patients:

  • Improve their nutritional status through increased lean body mass and strength.
  • Meet their nutritional requirements.
  • Understand malnutrition, liver disease and symptom management to enable them to meet their nutritional requirements.
  • Avoid enteral feeding via a food first approach to dietary intervention.
    - Malnourished – meet nutritional requirements.
    - Ascities – reduce salt advice.
    - Diabetes – dietary management.
  • The target group will know that symptoms of liver disease include fatigue, weight loss, extreme lethargy, bloated, nausea, vomiting, itching, further malnutrition.
  • The target group will understand that feeling full may be due to ascites.
  • Note that the Target Group must be given personalised advice related to their own condition and symptoms following feeding assessment that include height, weight, dry weight, skin folds and grip strength.
