Disease prevention and treatment

Take this 4 tips serious if you really want to live long

Cirrhosis is the severe scarring of the liver and poor liver function seen at the terminal stages of chronic liver disease. The scarring is most often caused by long-term exposure to toxins such as alcohol or viral infections. The liver is located in the upper right side of the abdomen below the ribs. It has many essential body functions. These include:

  • producing bile, which helps your body absorb dietary fats, cholesterol, and vitamins A, D, E, and K
  • storing sugar and vitamins for later use by the body
  • purifying blood by removing toxins such as alcohol and bacteria from your system
  • creating blood clotting proteins

Here are the 4 major causes of liver cirrhosis

1. Alcohol

Each time your liver filters alcohol, some of the liver cells die. The liver can develop new cells, but prolonged alcohol misuse (drinking too much) over many years can reduce its ability to regenerate. This can result in serious and permanent damage to your liver.

2. Fat

Too much fat in your liver can cause liver inflammation, which can damage your liver and create scarring. In severe cases, this scarring can lead to liver failure. When fatty liver develops in someone who drinks a lot of alcohol, it's known as alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD).

3. Viral hepatitis b c and d

End-stage hepatitis C means the liver has been severely damaged by the hepatitis C virus. The hepatitis C virus slowly damages the liver over many years, often progressing from inflammation to permanent, irreversible scarring (cirrhosis).

4. Cystic Fibrosis

can lead to liver disease by causing mucus to build up and block bile ducts in the liver. This prevents bile from leaving the liver, which causes inflammation and produces scarring (fibrosis). As a result, the  cannot function properly.
