Encephalopathy (cont.)

Encephalopathy Follow-up

Aside from patients who present with an acute poisoning that requires short-term intervention, most patients with encephalopathy will need life-long care and monitoring. Establishing a relationship with a primary care doctor will allow appropriate monitoring of specific disease states, regulation of medications and diet to help prevent acute flares of encephalopathy, and decrease the potential for gradual decline in mental function.
