A new tool has been developed to determine the risk of liver disease

Researchers at the Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS led an international study, published in the journal The Lancet, in which they designed an index to determine the risk in the general population of developing cirrhosis or other serious liver diseases. Thanks to the use of eight variables, it will be possible to make lifestyle changes in people at risk, to diagnose these diseases early and start treatment to slow down their progression.
