Encephalopathy (cont.)

Encephalopathy Prevention

Some encephalopathies are preventable by positive lifestyle choices and others cannot be foreseen. For example, hepatic encephalopathy from liver failure due to alcoholism may be prevented with a patient's commitment to abstinence from alcohol and use of medical care and community support to prevent or minimize the risk of relapse. Liver failure from other illnesses and congenital or accidental trauma that results in encephalopathy may not be preventable.
