Such failure shows up suddenly & instantly. Within a few days or weeks, you come to know that failure has succumbed to your liver.

This failure takes time. It starts to show symptoms after months and years. One of the common causes of chronic hepatic failure is the consumption of alcohol. And the alcohol-based liver diseases can manifest themselves into the following mentioned three forms:

  • Alcoholic fatty liver diseases

  • Alcoholic Hepatitis

  • Alcoholic Cirrhosis

  • Intake of certain medications (prescribed or non-prescribed)

  • Viral Infections

  • Hepatitis A, B, C

  • Consumption of herbal supplements

  • Attacked by the harmful toxins

Do not ignore any of the following symptoms, if that is happening recurrently. It is for your good.

  • Bloating

  • Staying tired even after lying on the bed for the whole day

  • Suffering from Diarrhea

  • Sudden and Rapid Weight Loss

Diagnosis – Do Not Hide Anything From Your Doctor

When you visit your doctor, then make sure to share everything and not hide anything. Your doctor should know all of the following:

  • If you are having any kind of the genetic abnormality

  • If you had a history of drug or alcohol abuse

  • If you are down with some other medical condition

  • When the doctor will know all of this, then a biopsy will be done.

Did you know?

A biopsy is one of the diagnostic techniques that take the sample of the liver to figure out the abnormalities.

Treatment – Don’t Worry, It’s Curable!

  1. If A Part Is Damaged

If only a part of the liver is damaged, the doctor will prescribe you certain medications. In case that part is severely damaged then surgery would be recommended to eliminate that part. Surgery is important to prevent the disease from spreading to the whole of the liver.

  1. If The Healthy Liver Is Damaged

Then the doctors will ask you not to worry and wait until it grows back.

  1. Severe Damage

If the liver is damaged severely because of some acute liver disease, then a liver transplant would be the best option.
