In the United States, alcohol and virus abuse are the most common culprits of liver failure.
Although the liver usually destroys alcohol, taking excess can lead to inflammation of the liver.
The damaged liver loses the ability to break down dietary fats. When this fat begins to accumulate in liver tissue, the condition is called steatosis (fatty liver).
However, people may experience this problem even if they do not drink too much alcohol.
Because the amount of working liver cells tends to decrease, your body can send one or more of these warning signs:
When red blood cells end their life cycle and die, they break down and form a chemical called bilirubin. This by-product is usually eliminated from the body by bile. If the liver injures itself, it cannot release the bile as needed. As a result, bilirubin begins to accumulate in the body, leading to yellowing of the skin and mucous membranes.
2 Extreme fatigue
The liver is one of the most important detoxifying organs you know. As this body loses its function, harmful substances accumulate in the body, causing inexplicable prolonged fatigue and lack of energy that does not disappear after a restful sleep.
3 abdominal discomfort
Enlarged and inflated, the liver can tighten the capsule (the bag that covers this body) and on the nerves. This can cause pain, severity and discomfort in the upper right abdomen.
4 Light hematoma
Remember that the liver is involved in the production of blood clotting factors? Reducing the number of healthy hepatocytes cannot produce enough of these substances. As a result, you may suffer from frequent epistaxis and bruises (even after a hint of light).
5 Climbing and descending
Severe hepatic impairment usually leads to the accumulation of fluids and inflammations associated with the synthesis of reduced proteins. In this case, swelling develops in the middle of the body, especially in the abdomen.
6 Mental problems
Poor judgment, low concentration and confusion occur at an advanced stage of fatty liver disease or other liver disease when the body is overloaded with toxins.
