      सफर में लिव्हर पेशंट को किन चीज़ों का खास ध्यान रखना चाहिए ? Travelling Tips By Dr. Bipin Vibhute

      by | Jan 4, 2022 | Liver Transplant Videos, Videos

      Liver patients are susceptible to various infections and diseases, making it paramount for liver patients to take complete care.

      If an individual is planning for a short distance travel by bike or car or train, he must consult his doctor and do as advised.

      Things to keep in mind for short or long distance travel:
      1. Consult your doctor before traveling: Individuals with liver disorders may be more susceptible to travel-related illnesses and should consult a health care professional at least 6-8 weeks before departure.

      2. Things travellers should carry: Traveller’s should bring a basic first-aid kit with them that is specific to their destination. Insect repellents, medications, and oral rehydration solutions to treat traveller’s gastrointestinal symptoms, alcohol gel to clean hands when no hand washing facilities are available, condoms, and basic wound dressings/antiseptics items that may be included.

      3. Carry your supplies of food:
      People with certain liver diseases may be prescribed a restricted diet, such as one that is high in protein, low in salt, low in fat, or sugar-free. These diets might be tough to stick to when traveling; having a stock of appropriate snacks on hand can assist.

      For Long duration National / International Travels:

      2. Travel health insurance: Traveller’s should obtain comprehensive travel health insurance and disclose any pre-existing medical issues; an additional premium payment may be necessary.

      1. Research Advanced medical facilities: Medical facilities in larger hospitals with specialized staff are frequently required to treat liver disorders. Travellers should research the health facilities available at their destination before their trip in case of illness.

      Vaccination: Hepatitis A and B vaccinations are especially important for travellers with chronic (long-term) liver diseases. Infection with these viruses can result in significant consequences.

      Malaria: It can cause serious consequences in traveller’s who have certain liver diseases. Some antimalarial medications are not recommended for poor liver function; professional advice may be required.

      Pre-travel preparation
      Individuals with liver conditions who intend to travel should be encouraged to thoroughly research their destination and discuss the suitability of their proposed trip with a healthcare professional, ideally before booking.

      Ensure to carry all medications

      Fitness Certificate: Traveller’s with liver disease may experience consequences that impact their ability to fly, such as hepatic encephalopathy or a proclivity for bleeding. For a patient with jaundice (yellow skin and eyes), a doctor’s fitness to fly certificate may be required to board a flight, indicating that they are not infectious to other passengers.

      Travel concerns:
      Due to the prolonged immobility associated with travel, some passengers are at a higher risk of venous thromboembolism. Travellers, people with active cancer, and recently undergoing surgery are all at higher risk.

      Avoid the following: Freshwater fishing, kayaking, rafting, and swimming are all activities that can expose you to Leptospira, a bacteria that can cause liver inflammation. Traveller’s with pre-existing liver illnesses are at a higher risk.

      Vaccination:
      Routine vaccines should be up to date for travellers with liver illness. Live vaccinations, such as yellow fever, MMR, BCG, and oral typhoid, are contraindicated (cannot be given) in immunocompromised people (those with a weakened immune system), such as those who have had a liver transplant or who are on steroids for autoimmune hepatitis.

      Hepatitis A
      All patients with severe liver disease should be immunized against hepatitis A, regardless of the reason. Immunization works well for patients with mild liver disease, with response rates equivalent to healthy people.
