Intrahepatic cholestasis during pregnancy predisposes to later liver disease

In a preliminary investigation it has been found that if there is Intrahepatic cholestasis during pregnancy women are more susceptible to liver disease late on.//

This case control study was performed in Finland on 21,008 women and found the above mentioned result. Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is an itchy skin condition when bile gets backed up in the liver.

The study is published in the April 2006 issue of Hepatology, the official journal of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD).

They studied a total of 21,008 women, and collected information on their subsequent hospitalizations.

Statistically significant differences in the incidence of several liver and biliary diseases were noted and women who had ICP were significantly more likely to later be diagnosed with hepatitis C, non-alcoholic cirrhosis, gallstones, cholecystitis and non-alcoholic pancreatitis.
