Fast Facts: Hepatic encephalopathy

    • Around 29 million people in Europe suffer from a chronic liver condition[i]
    • Hepatic encephalopathy is a worsening of brain function that occurs when the liver is no longer able to remove toxic substances in the blood.[ii]
    • Liver disease patients with hepatic encephalopathy have almost double the risk of dying and are admitted to hospital three times more often for illness directly related to their liver disease, compared with those patients without hepatic encephalopathy .[iii]
