Overview


Live Disease - Treatment and Surgery

Liver problems include a wide range of diseases and conditions that can affect your liver. Your liver is an organ about the size of a football that sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. Without your liver, you couldn't digest food and absorb nutrients, get rid of toxic substances from your body or stay alive.

Liver problems can be inherited, or liver problems can occur in response to viruses and chemicals. Some liver problems are temporary and go away on their own, while other liver problems can last for a long time and lead to serious complications. Liver problems

Liver problems that can occur include fatty liver disease and cirrhosis. The liver and its cells - as seen through a microscope - change dramatically when a normal liver becomes fatty or cirrhotic.

  • Discolored skin and eyes that appear yellowish
  • Abdominal pain and swelling
  • Itchy skin that doesn't seem to go away
  • Dark urine color

Your liver is located under your rib cage, which helps protect it from injury. Your liver is dark reddish-brown because at any given moment it holds a pint of blood. Most of the liver's blood supply comes from the portal vein, which carries nutrients and toxins from your digestive system.


Q. When to see a doctor

Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any persistent signs or symptoms that worry you. Seek immediate medical attention if you have abdominal pain that is so severe that you can't stay still.

Tests and procedures used to diagnose liver problems include : -


  • Blood tests. A group of blood tests called liver function tests can be used to diagnose liver problems. Other blood tests can be done to look for specific liver problems or inherited conditions that affect the liver.


  • Imaging tests. Procedures that create pictures of your liver, such as computerized tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, can reveal liver problems.


  • Tests of liver tissue : - A procedure to remove tissue from your liver (liver biopsy) may help in diagnosing liver problems. Liver biopsy is most often done using a long needle inserted through the skin to extract a tissue sample (needle biopsy). The tissue sample is sent to a laboratory where it can be examined under a microscope.


Treatments and drugs

Treatment for liver problems depends on your diagnosis. Some liver problems can be treated with medications. Others may require surgery. Liver transplant may ultimately be required for liver problems that cause liver failure.
