Steroids Therapy Is Beneficial To Alcoholic Hepatitis PatientsAccording to a study presented here at the 44th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), corticosteroids given to patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis can improve their survival by almost one month.

On April 23, Dr. Philippe Mathurin of the Department of Hepatology and Gastroenterology, Hôpital Claude Huriez, Lille, France, presented the results of a meta-analysis that shows that steroid therapy can be helpful people who are found to have a poor prognosis for survival.

Corticosteroids compound can be obtained from the cholesterol inside the adrenal cortex. This compound is responsible for the immunity of the body. It controls blood electrolyte levels of the body and serves as an anti-inflammatory. Corticosteroids are also in-charge of the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates in the body.

Because of its anti-inflammatory property, it is not impossible that steroids therapy can indeed help people suffering from alcoholic hepatitis by increasing their survival rate.
