Liver Cirrhosis

Read in Hindi

Liver cirrhosis is a pathological condition in which normal healthy cells of the liver are killed, thus leading to the formation of scar tissue. In the early stage, cirrhosis remains undiagnosed since it does not reveal any symptoms. As the condition gets progressively worse, the situation turns grave. The major causes for the development of cirrhosis include excessive intake of alcohol, over eating of fatty foods, infections like hepatitis B and C, medicinal side-effects, blockage in bile duct passage, accumulation of toxic metals and autoimmune liver disease. When affected with such a disorder, one can develop symptoms like fatigue, edema, reduced appetite, jaundice and weight loss. In early stage liver cirrhosis, medical treatment has been proved to be effective, but in the late stage, transplant of the liver is simply the only option available for treatment.
