Liver Disease Prevention, Symposium at King Edward Medical University


Syed Iqbal Shah was my father’s friend. He was a literary man. He was employed in a bank. Heard long stories but one day it was found out that he has a liver disease and also the last stage in which he was diagnosed with cancer, he still had a job, so all his treatment was done in a private hospital. I gave him a smiling and sympathetic human body, but he lost weight within days of being diagnosed with the disease, and finally when I went to see him in the hospital I did not recognize him. I am Iqbal Shah. There is another similar story of my close friend who contracted hepatitis but due to reliance on home remedies and disgust with hospital medicine, the disease became severe and one day he was unable to walk. The blood was taken to the Ultimate Eye Hospital but the liver had ruptured and they left for Malik Adam. Baba Naeem Sheikh, a senior correspondent of Radio Pakistan Lahore also succumbed to hepatitis and died after being under treatment in the neurology department of the Fruit Hospital for several days. The fact is that in the inner city, where there is a lot of life, you will find Hepatitis C patients in every street corner. Other causes of the outbreak are becoming less and less due to public awareness. The only way to prevent this is to get vaccinated in some cases. It was a tragedy but I got this vaccine through a friend and got it to the person concerned so that he can at least avoid Hepatitis B virus. Now he needs 2 more doses of vaccine. Medicines for hepatitis A and C are helpful in treating them. Vaccines have not yet been discovered. If only clean water could be made available, liver diseases could be prevented. They are playing their role and clean water supply filter plants are being set up all over the city. There is still a lot of work to be done but the government is busy playing its role by sending water bill every month.
Recently, on the occasion of the 41st Scientific Symposium of King Edward Medical University, a workshop on various diseases of the liver was of great importance. Vice Chancellor Prof. Khalid Masood Gondal was the special guest of the function and Prof. Muhammad Shoaib Shafi, Prof. Shahid Sarwar participated as the guest of honor.

Complete treatment of the successful combination.
