Liver Care and Detox

LIVER DISEASES AND DAMAGE:The liver has two large sections, called the right and the left lobes. The gallbladder sits under the liver, along with parts of the pancreas and intestines. The liver and these organs work together to digest, absorb and process food. The liver itself performs a broad range of functions, including detoxification, protein synthesis and production of chemicals used in digestion.

8 COMMON SIGNS TO LOOK OUT FOR:

TOO OFTEN THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS: A MOTHER’S TESTIMONY

My son died of Cirrhosis of the liver just this past January 2015 at age 53. His first symptoms of damage to his liver was the swollen belly and legs, hands. Before he passed he was unable to walk on his own, he was crawling to and from the bathroom. He had 15 liters of fluid drained and it always came back. This is what alcohol does to a body, even when it is only beer. I see television ads that glamourize alcohol and I get so angry. For some people giving up drinking may not work, it didn’t for my son. So think about your health and your body when you pop that nice cold beer and understand that in the long run it can kill you. It did my son and my heart is broken. I will always love him and I miss him terribly.

8 Common Signs of Liver Damage

The liver is the largest internal organ, and surprisingly powerful. Not only does it protect all your tissues from damage by filtering out toxins from your bloodstream, but it also can repair its own damaged tissue.

This means that, given the right time and care, liver tissue can be regenerate and your body’s filtration system can continue to function efficiently. However, some liver conditions leave permanent damage, and in these cases, early diagnosis and swift treatment can mean the difference between an uncomfortable (but treatable) illness and a life-threatening emergency.

Like many progressive diseases, you may not notice any signs or symptoms of liver disease in the early stages. As scarring continues and liver function begins to decline, you may begin to notice some physical changes in certain areas of your body, as well as more general discomfort from head to toe.
1. Abdominal Swelling

A swollen abdomen can point to a condition called ascites, where liver malfunction leads to an imbalance of proteins and other compounds, and fluid builds up in the tissues. The main symptom of ascites is a pronounced potbelly, and often signals cirrhosis. Sometimes swelling occurs in the hands, feet, and ankles, as gravity draws the excess fluid down to the extremities.

3. Fatigue and Weakness

It can be easy to dismiss fatigue and lethargy as a normal side effect of a stressful life, but severe exhaustion could point to low blood oxygen levels and waste accumulation.
4. Loss of Appetite

Nausea, a disinterest in food, and weight loss are some early symptoms of liver problems. In fact, the initial stages of hepatitis often bring flu-like symptoms, including digestive discomfort.

As liver damage progresses, more pronounced symptoms may appear. You may start to feel pain in certain areas, and you might see some startling changes in appearance.

5. Jaundice

As liver function declines and waste can no longer be eliminated from the body efficiently, the bile pigment called bilirubin can build up in the bloodstream. In turn, the skin and eyes can take on a yellowish color, urine will appear darker, and stools will appear lighter.

6. Abdominal Pain

When cirrhosis begins to cause pain, it typically comes in the upper right abdomen, or just under the lower right ribs. The pain can be throbbing or stabbing, and it may come and go. If the pain is so intense that you can’t sit still, you should seek immediate medical attention.

7. Personality Changes

Cognitive issues can develop when toxins accumulate in the blood and move to the brain. Confusion and problems with concentration are often the first signs of toxin overload, but they can lead to forgetfulness, changes in sleeping habits, and unresponsiveness.

8. Persistent Vomiting

While nausea and upset stomach are common early symptoms of liver disease, but as your liver’s ability to eliminate toxins decreases, your digestive distress will likely increase. Ongoing nausea is a reaction to excess waste products in the body, and unexplained vomiting is often linked to liver problems.
Spotting the symptoms of liver damage is early is vital for effective treatment, so if you suspect a problem with your liver, take your concerns to your doctor right away. There are several tests that can quickly and painlessly reveal the extent of your liver damage, and that will determine the right course of therapy. The sooner you can halt the progression of your liver disease, the more healthy tissue you can save, and the better your liver’s chances of regeneration.

There are over 100 types of liver conditions. They include:

Hepatitis: Inflammation or swelling of the liver, usually caused by a viral infection like hepatitis A, B or C. Hepatitis can have non-infectious causes too, including heavy drinking, drug use, allergic reactions or obesity.

Cirrhosis: Long-term damage to the liver from any cause can lead to permanent scarring, called cirrhosis. The liver is then unable to function well. It is often caused by years of alcohol misuse.

Non- alcoholic fatty liver disease: A build up of fat in the cells of the liver, usually seen in people who are overweight or obese.

Liver cancer: The most common type of liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, almost always occurs after cirrhosis is present.

Liver failure: Liver failure has many causes including infection, genetic diseases and excessive alcohol consumption.

Ascites: As a result of cirrhosis, the liver leaks fluid (ascites) into the abdomen, which becomes distended and heavy.

Gallstones: If a gallstone gets stuck in the bile duct draining the liver, it can trigger hepatitis and bile duct infection, known as cholangitis.

Haemochromatosis: Haemochromatosis is an inherited disorder that allows iron to collect around the liver, damaging it. The iron also builds up throughout the body, causing many other health problems.

Primary sclerosing cholangitis: A rare disease with unknown causes, which results in inflammation and scarring in the bile ducts of the liver.

Primary biliary cirrhosis: In this rare disorder, an unclear process slowly destroys the bile ducts in the liver. Permanent liver scarring, or cirrhosis, eventually develops.

Liver tests

In order to diagnose liver disease, your doctor may arrange a number of tests, including:

Blood tests

Liver function tests: Liver function tests (LFTs) check how well the liver is working and includes assessment of different blood indices.
