Can someone get Cirrhosis of the Liver from Malnutrition?


Is it possible to get cirrhosis of the liver due to malnutrition? A family member has told us that they have it? Thank you for your help.
----------

why sure! it's called fatty liver or NASH. malnutrition is a hard way of putting it, more than likely they were on the wrong diet, ie, too little fat absorbtion or too much. extreme weight loss or weight gain can cause nash.
other things can cause cirrhosis like iron, viral infections (hep b or c), over the counter meds.  (+ info)

What is the prognosis for Cerebral Atrophy found in my 68y/o husband, from Malnutrition?


He has developed the Malnutrition after being treated by drug therapy for long standing Depression. The Cerebral Atrophy was found in a CT Scan at the same time Bladder Cancer was found.

What is the difference between starvation and malnutrition?


i need to discuss the difference between starvation and malnutrition
----------

With starvation you do not get the minimum number of calories you need to survive. The body begins the process of breaking itself down just to keep basic systems running. Starvation implies that there isn't enough food to eat, or you simply are not eating. Malnutrition occurs when the food you eat provides the calories, but not the necessary vitamins and minerals you need to stay healthy. You can be obese, and malnourished, believe it or not. Malnutrition may happen because healthy foods are not available that would provide what you need, or the food is available but you will not or do not eat it.  (+ info)

You can survive about 24 days without food before you die. Leave out water and its much less.

A fatter person will last a tad longer because body fat is the first to go, the more, the longer you stay around.  (+ info)
