Symptoms that report serious liver problems

How are the diseases that crush the liver? Doctor: "A state of tiredness or nausea goes unnoticed, but I can report hepatitis"

A balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle can improve the condition of the liver. When the liver is affected, certain symptoms occur.


One of the first symptoms in liver disorders is the permanent state of fatigue. Although it is normal for us to feel exhausted after a day of work, people who have liver problems feel fatigue and weakness even after a night of sleep or after a week of rest. In addition, the level of energy fluctuates throughout the day, so there are difficulty concentrating and sleepiness in the afternoon.


Because liver problems also affect the nervous system, symptoms such as frequent headaches, dizziness, irritability and depressive states may occur, but also disturbances of concentration, sudden changes from one state of mind to another, and even unreasonable states of anger


In the case of hepatitis, jaundice, ie the yellowish skin of the skin, is not one of the symptoms that occur in the early stages of the disease, but when liver damage is quite advanced. However, in other situations, this sign may also manifest at the beginning before hepatic lesions are severe. So, the skin discolors and gets yellowish tones, because hepatic damage causes an excess of bilirubin to accumulate in the body, as the liver can not properly remove toxins. Faded spots may also appear on the face. And the nail white becomes slightly yellowish, and in some cases also the white of the eyes.


Individuals whose liver does not function normally may notice some changes in intestinal transit, ie constipation or soft stool for long periods of time. Irritable bowel syndrome, ie diarrhea and gas-associated bloating, can also occur with a liver disorder.


Associated with cirrhosis, the increase in the size of the abdomen may also occur in other liver disorders. The cause is the accumulation of fluid in the abdominal wall and inflammation of the liver, a symptom known as ascites. Excess of liquids can also accumulate in the legs in case of liver problems.


Have you noticed that the urine is lighter or darker than usual? It may be a sign of bilirubin accumulation. Bilirubin is a substance resulting from metabolism (destruction) of hem, a component of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Therefore, once the aged red blood cells are destroyed, the resulting bilirubin reaches the liver in the form of indirect bilirubin. This should be removed from the body, which is difficult to do, however, because indirect bilirubin is an insoluble substance. Therefore, the liver converts indirect bilirubin into direct bilirubin, which is soluble and then goes out of the liver through the bile. It thus reaches the intestine, where it is transformed into urobilinogen. Part of it is eliminated by feces in the form of stercobilinogen. The other part returns to the liver, and the rest passes into the blood and is eliminated through the urine. However, if an increase in direct bilirubin is observed, there is suspected either a hepatic injury (destruction) or a blockage in the bile ducts, ie a mechanical jaundice.


An onset of itching as if something was going under the skin is an annoying and worrying feeling.
It is the sign of accumulation of toxins in the body, because the liver does not fulfill its role of detoxification.
