The levels of lipids in the blood of people suffering from acute Cirrhosis is lower than that of the population generally, because the diseased condition of cirrhosis does not let liver absorb required quantities of fat from the foods and let it into the blood stream .Hypothetically, higher levels of blood fat is required at these junctures; However Doctors believe that keeping away from increasing blood fat levels is essential to effective treatment of cirrhosis

Which one of the following, if true, does most to justify this apparently paradoxical belief?

(A) The blood fat level for patients cured of acute Cirrhosis is on average the same as that for other normal people.
(B) Several symptoms of Cirrhosis have been have been detected in laboratory animals which have been fed with large doses of artificial fats, though the results were erratic and inconclusive.
(C) Mild affectation of Cirrhosis can lead to acute cirrhosis only when liver absorbs large quantities of fat from the patient’s blood stream .
(D) People who have acute cirrhosis respond very slowly to dietary changes of food fats.
(E) Acute Cirrhosis is a pre-cursor of many such dreaded diseases such as heart-attack and Kidney failure etc

C it is. Below is my reasoning:

(A) The blood fat level for patients cured of acute Cirrhosis is on average the same as that for other normal people.
Cured people : Irrelevant, since the we need to figure out why blood fat is to be kept away from , for effective treatment of cirrhosis.

(B) Several symptoms of Cirrhosis have been have been detected in laboratory animals which have been fed with large doses of artificial fats, though the results were erratic and inconclusive.
No result of symptoms mentioned. Not relevant.

(D) People who have acute cirrhosis respond very slowly to dietary changes of food fats.
hence people should keep away from blood fat level? no. cant be "essential" for an efficient treatment.

(E) Acute Cirrhosis is a pre-cursor of many such dreaded diseases such as heart-attack and Kidney failure etc[/quote]
Clearly irrelevant!


(C) Mild affectation of Cirrhosis can lead to acute cirrhosis only when liver absorbs large quantities of fat from the patient’s blood stream .
Makes it ABSOLUTELY essential to keep away from blood fat. Correct choice.
