Reviews

Educating patients and their families regarding basic concepts about the physiology and function of the liver, Dr. Thuluvath provides in a layperson's language the framework by which physicians diagnose, stage, and manage liver diseases.

A comprehensive overview of the function of the liver and common forms of liver disease by the leading authority in the field.

Liver disease deaths continue to increase year on year. Dr Thuluvath's book is very timely and hugely important as he distils the complexity of the disease into easy-to-understand, lucid language and illustrations. Liver disease occurrence and progression is preventable with greater understanding and lifestyle modification. A must read.

This book provides a wealth of information for patients with liver diseases and their caregivers. It reflects the extensive clinical experience of the author and his passion as a doctor who focuses on the patient and not the disease, and as a teacher who understands the power of knowledge.

In easy-to-understand language and with simple illustrations, Dr. Thuluvath helps the reader understand the causes of liver disease, the interpretation of tests, and why specific treatments are recommended. A must-read for all patients and families of patients with liver disease or at risk for liver disease.
