The liver is the largest internal organ in the body and performs a wide range of important functions to maintain human health.
The liver filters toxins from the blood, and produces bile, which helps with digestion, protein production, amino acid metabolism, and storage of some vitamins and minerals for the body.
In the following report, we review what liver patients feel, according to what the “eatthis” website reported.
What are the causes of liver disease?
1. Toxins: Medications, toxins, or excessive alcohol use can cause fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, and many other conditions.
2. Viral infections, including eating or drinking contaminated foods, hepatitis A, drug use, hepatitis B, or exposure to contaminated blood through shared needles and blood transfusions.
3. An autoimmune disease, in which case your body attacks your liver. Autoimmune hepatitis leads to other disorders and even liver failure.
4. First cholangitis.
5. Genetic liver problems.
8. Cancer. It comes from a different area such as the lung, colon or breast and spreads to the liver. Cancer that begins in the liver is due to hepatitis or excessive drinking.
What are the main signs of liver disease?
Abdominal pain on the right side.
Significant change in the color of urine or stool.
Nausea or vomiting.
Swelling in the arms or legs.
Jaundice (yellowing of the eyes).
What do you do if you notice these signs?
In general, if you experience any changes in your body, such as swelling in the abdomen or difficulty urinating and bruising easily, blood and urine tests as well as imaging studies can help diagnose liver disease. It is also best to consult a doctor immediately if you notice these symptoms.
