Cirrhosis patients report lower QOL due to sleep disturbances

February 8, 2017
Most patients with advanced cirrhosis have disturbed sleep, which leads to a decrease in quality of life, according to study results published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

The study included 193 adult patients with cirrhosis who visited the hepatology outpatient clinics at Indiana University between December 2012 and January 2014. Thirty-six patients had subjectively good sleep and researchers considered 157 to have poor sleep as determined by mild, moderate or severe disturbances.
