Bad Lifestyle-The Reason For Your Liver Dysfunction Leading to Liver Cirrhosis

The medical term “liver cirrhosis” is a problem associated with our liver. The largest and one of the most significant organs in the human body is the liver. The liver is a roughly football-sized organ. It is positioned on the right side of the abdomen, directly below the right rib cage. The liver is essential for metabolizing meals and removing poisons from the body.

Liver disease is mostly heritable (genetic). Liver disorders can be caused by many things that hurt the liver, such as infections, drinking too much alcohol, and being overweight.

Diseases that hurt the liver can cause scarring (cirrhosis) over time, which can lead to liver failure, which can be fatal. On the other hand, receiving treatment as soon as possible could allow the liver to heal. There, the body breaks down poisons, hormones, medications, alcohol, preservatives, chemicals, and other toxins.

What is Liver Cirrhosis

The liver tries to repair itself each time it is harmed or destroyed by toxic substances. However, during this procedure, liver cells develop scar tissue. As cirrhosis of the liver gets worse, more and more tissues and cells become worried, which makes it harder for the liver to work.

“Fibrosis” is the name for when a scar made of collagen grows around or replaces damaged tissue. Fibrosis moves at different speeds depending on the cause of liver disease, environmental factors, and the person who has it. An advanced form of liver fibrosis is cirrhosis. It is a sickness that worsens over time and progresses slowly. If scar tissue builds up and isn’t treated, it could stop the liver from working.

Cirrhosis is the eleventh most common disease-related cause of death, taking the lives of 27,000 people every year. Men are slightly more prone to developing the illness than women are.

Causes of Liver Cirrhosis

Even though alcoholism, hepatitis B and C, and fatty liver disease are the most common causes of cirrhosis, there are many other possible causes, such as:

  • Obesity is becoming a common cause of cirrhosis*
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  • Excessive iron
  • Biliary duct scarring

You might not have any symptoms in the early stages of liver cirrhosis, but as the disease progresses over time, you might start to notice some signs such as,

  • Fever
  • Reduced appetite
  • Not enough energy
  • Weight gain or decrease suddenly
  • Nauseousness and vomiting tendency
  • Bruises
  • Edema with itchy skin on the legs, abdomen, and ankles (often an early sign)
  • Jaundice
  • Urine with a brownish or orange hue
  • Bloating and pain in the abdomen
  • Stool with a light color and foul odor
  • Disorientation, confusion, and personality changes
  • Stool with blood in it

liver cirrhosis diagnosis includes

  • Tests for hepatitis B and C,
  • The liver’s function, imaging studies such as an MRI,
  • CT scan, and ultrasound images
  • Liver biopsies

Even though the liver is our main organ for getting rid of toxins and seems like it would be vulnerable to a buildup of toxins over time, it has an amazing ability to heal itself.

In fact, the liver is the only organ in the body that can repair itself on its own. A liver can grow back to its original size, health, and function with as little as 25% of its original size, health, and function.

The best ways to keep the liver healthy are to give it a break from things that stress it out and give it time to rest and heal. This plan is similar to the idea behind a more thorough cleanse, which can be a great way to improve the way your liver works.

The good news is that the liver has the ability to heal itself; all we need to do is provide it with the right assistance.

So, the following tips are meant to help the liver work normally, whether you are being proactive, trying to fix an existing liver problem, or trying to undo decisions you may have made in the past that overworked your liver.
