Often the complication of liver cirrhosis
is hepatic encephalopathy
. It is due to biochemical abnormalities associated with liver failure
Hepatic encephalopathy [HE]is marked by an intractable cycle of relapse and remission, followed almost inevitably by relapse. Episodes of acute encephalopathy
can be reversed; however, people with chronic liver disease
are consistently susceptible to future relapse.
If your grandmother is taking some ayurvedic medicine [I can not comment much as I am allopathic doctor], and if liver functions are returning to normal; may be it is a relapse.
Approximately 80% (8 out of 10 patients) die if they go into a coma. Recovery and the risk of the condition returning vary from patient to patient.
If you are able to control underlying liver disease, then prognosis is good; in terms HE will not return/progress.
