Abstract

This chapter will focus on studies within the last 5 years of nutrition in end stage liver disease, but earlier studies illustrating the present state of affairs will also be mentioned. The first part will focus on descriptive epidemiological studies that help to set the scene for the intervention studies, which will be described in the second part. Each part will discuss liver cirrhosis, acute liver failure and liver transplantation separately. The aim is to provide the reader with sufficient background for the decision in clinical practice about when to see nutrition support as an important part of treatment of the patient.
