Liver Failure: 6 Common Symptoms That Need Urgent Medical Attention

When your liver is unable to perform its tasks properly, it is called liver failure (for example, manufacturing bile and ridding the body of harmful substances).

Hepatitis B and C, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, alcohol abuse, and hemochromatosis are only few of the diseases and conditions that can lead to liver failure.

Chronic liver failure is frequently caused by cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver produced by repeated or long-term damage, such as chronic hepatitis infection or high alcohol usage.

As scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue, the liver’s ability to function deteriorates.

Liver failure might take years to manifest. The symptoms of liver failure are commonly mistaken with those of other medical conditions, making early diagnosis difficult.

Chronic liver failure, also known as long-term liver failure, is a type of liver failure that happens over a long period of time.

According to Mayo Clinic, the following are the common symptoms of liver failure:

1. Fatigue

2. Vomiting blood

3. Blood in stool

4. Jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes)

5. Abdominal swelling

6. Swelling of the feet.
