Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis is a life- threatening liver disease in which liver is permanently damaged as the healthy liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue. Scar tissue causes decline in your liver function. It blocks blood flow through the liver and also slows the liver’s ability to process nutrients, hormones, drugs or the natural toxins (poisons). It also reduces the production of proteins and other substances synthesized by the liver. Cirrhosis is a late-stage result of liver disease which   eventually leads to liver failure. Patients are often advised to go through liver transplantation. Hepatitis and chronic alcohol abuse are most common causes. Fatigue, weakness and weight loss occurs as initial symptoms in some patients whereas some patients are asymptomatic in beginning phases and in later stages, patients might have jaundice (yellowing of the skin), gastrointestinal bleeding, abdominal swelling and confusion.
