It is important that the person with liver disease gets good rest, eats a well-balanced diet, drinks plenty of fluids, and maintains a healthy lifestyle. Daily medication or vitamin supplements may be required. You need to monitor the person closely for signs of infection. Consult a doctor right away if you suspect infection. People with liver disease may have fragile skin, so be careful when you handle them. You may also need to provide emotional support, especially for people who have had transplants and have a long recovery ahead of them.
