40 per cent of patients who approached the gastroenterology department had liver-related disorders. The increase in the liver-related disorders is mostly due to the changes in lifestyle and increased alcohol consumption - Dr. Barnaba said.

GH Kalavathy Ponniraivan, V.K. Rajamani, medical superintendent (in-charge) of the Institute of Internal Medicine and Dean of Madras Medical College were among the speakers in the press meeting that was held on that day.
