Get Treated For Liver Diseases

The liver is responsible for many important functions within the body and so, should be given utmost care. If the liver becomes diseased, the loss of those tasks cause substantial damage to the body. Liver disease is also referred to as hepatic illness.
Liver disease is a comprehensive term that covers all the potential complications that cause the liver to fail to perform its designated functions. Usually, more than 75% or three quarters of liver tissue is affected before the decrease in functioning occurs.

Symptoms of Liver Diseases:
  • Right upper quadrant abdominal pain
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Easy bruising may occur due to decreased production of clotting factors.
  • Bile salts can get deposited in the skin to cause itching
  • Enlarged breasts in men could occur because of an imbalance in sex hormones.
  • Impotency, poor sex drive and shrinking testicles are due to decrease in functioning of sex hormones.
  • Lethargy & confusion may occur if ammonia levels rise in the blood stream 
  • Reduced protein production may result in muscle wasting.

How Is It Treated?
Acute liver failure which is caused by an overdose of acetaminophen can be treated and its effects can be reversed. If a virus results liver failure, supportive care can be given at hospital to treat the signs until the virus runs its course. In these cases, the liver may sometimes recover on its own.
For liver failure that is the result of long-term worsening, the first treatment goal may be to save whatever part of the liver is still operational. If this is impossible, then a liver transplant is essential. Fortunately, liver transplant is a common practice that is often successful.
