Your liver is one of the most important organs in the body. It doesn’t get much attention until it starts to break down. Then we remember why its so important. It regulates the formation of blood, how much glucose, protein, fat and platelets enter the blood stream. It controls the blood’s ability to clot.
It screens and removes harmful toxins that would kill us like bilirubin and ammonia. It processes and stores vital nutrients. The liver breaks down toxins made by the body but also external ones as well. Drugs and alcohol are on that list of chemicals that the liver deals with. If you have a history of drinking or drug abuse you should stay alert for warnings signs of liver failure.
The list of symptoms are vague and hard to pinpoint specifically to the liver. If you are experiencing five or more of these symptoms, play it safe and seek medical advice. The quicker you get treatment the better your chances of recovery. If you experience only a few of these symptoms and not very frequently, still go see a doctor. Once the liver starts to shut down your body goes into a chemical shock and it’s not very comfortable.
