Abstract

Burden of CLD is high in our country. Many of these patients are malnourished due to decreased oral intake and protein energy malnutrition in addition to the co morbidities associated with the disease itself. Published data is scarce on malnutrition in these patients. Also it is not known whether malnutrition has a relationship with liver fibrosis. Moreover we also do not know about the frequency of deficient micronutrients in cirrhosis with malnutrition. Hence it is essential to work on relationship of malnutrition and liver fibrosis. This may serve as an indirect tool for assessment of liver fibrosis. Also identifying the burden of micronutrient deficiency and correlation with liver fibrosis may serve as an intervention to improve malnutrition and subsequently liver cirrhosis.

Research question

• What is the frequency of micronutrients deficiency in serum in patients with liver cirrhosis?

• What is the relationship of malnutrition with fibrosis in liver cirrhosis?

• What is the relationship of micronutrients with fibrosis in liver cirrhosis?

Objective:

• To determine the frequency of micronutrients deficiency (Selenium, vitamen D, Iron, Zinc, B12, Folate ) in patients with liver cirrhosis

• To determine relation between malnutrition and liver fibrosis in patients with cirrhosis.

• To determine relation between micronutrient and liver fibrosis in patients with cirrhosis
