Live Life Free from Chronic Liver Disease

Businessman Rohit Ganguly loves his single malt. At 39 years of age, Mr. Ganguly is the life of every social gathering. However, his weakness for alcohol often sees him going overboard with drinking.

A month ago, during a night of revelry with friends, Mr. Ganguly began to feel extremely ill and started vomiting. He had been experiencing abdominal pain and frequent nausea over the last few weeks and passing dark-coloured urine. Luckily, a friend of Mr. Ganguly at the party had the 24-hours Emergency number of Desun Kolkata, 90 5171 5171, and called the hospital immediately. Even though it was past 2 ‘o’ clock at night, Desun’s 24-hours Ambulance Pick-up service sent an ambulance straight away to bring Mr. Ganguly to Desun Kolkata.

At the hospital, a 24-hour Specialist Doctor diagnosed Mr. Ganguly’s ailment as Cirrhosis, a chronic liver disease.


Liver disease can be inherited (genetic) or caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Obesity is also associated with liver damage. Over time, damage to the liver results in scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition.
