Liver Disease Symptoms What to Watch for by anamaulida


									<div class="KonaBody">
        <p>Up to 50 per cent of the people with an underlying liver
dysfunction show no symptoms. The most common signs are quite non-
specific, such as excessive tiredness or fatigue, lack of drive, and
occasional itching. Some symptoms of liver malfunctioning are more
prominent: yellowing of the skin and eyes, known as jaundice, dark
colored urine, light colored or very pale faeces or bowel movements,
bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract, mental confusion, and retention
of fluids in the stomach or belly.</p>
<p>The early signs of chronic liver condition are quite similar to those
occurring in some other medical conditions. Often, the signs show when
the patient's liver is damaged to a great extent. Patients suffering from
a liver disease may have disorders of the gastrointestinal tract that may
result in quick weight loss, accompanied by excessive drinking of water
and frequent urination. Decreased consumption of food may result in
severe weakness and anaemia.</p>
<p>Typically, common signs of liver failure that show at first are as
follows: loss of appetite, nausea, diarrhea, exhaustion, fatigue, and
lethargy. As the condition aggravates, the signs become more visible,
eventually leading to liver failure.</p>
<p>In the last stage, the liver has either lost its capacity to function
in full or has become cancerous. Once the liver is affected to such an
extent, transplantation is in most cases required for survival.</p>
<p>The sufferer may become severely discolored, more notably than in the
other phases of the liver disease.</p>
<p>Swelling of the stomach and extreme conditions that began in these
past stages will also considerably grow in number. Nausea, diarrhea, loss
of appetite and hallucinations may often appear in these individuals. The
overall health condition may have the tendency to decline as well. The
majority of these signs might show themselves in the early phases of the
liver failure, but may not be identified until the condition enters an
advanced stage. This occurs because the presence of some of the above
mentioned symptoms is normal in sufferers with liver diseases. Other
signs are:</p>
<p>Pale excrement: This happens due to the inability of the liver to
excrete bile. The stool gets dark colored because of the bile.</p>
<p>Jaundice: It is one of the main symptoms of liver failure. The
presence of jaundice suggests that the liver is not functioning properly.
With this symptom, the coloration of the skin turns pale yellow. The
white part of the eyes might also turn yellow. If the liver isn't working
well, that oftentimes leads to jaundice.</p>
<p>Severe itching: This symptom is the the result of the deposition of
bile in the skin.</p>
<p>Abdominal pain: This is caused by inflammation and enlargement of the
sufferer's liver.</p>
<p>Increased bleeding or bruising: The sufferer bleeds and bruises
easily. The main reason is the liver's inability to produce vital
coagulant proteins.</p>
<p>Irregular levels of blood sugar: This condition develops because the
liver cannot assist the pancreas in the processing of carbohydrates.</p>
<p>Other symptoms that can occur in the last phase of chronic liver
failure are seizures and muscle tremors.</p>        <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
