Liver disease treatment
Your liver is one of the biggest organs in your body. It acts to remove toxins that may damage your body. Your liver makes blood clotting factors, proteins, and enzymes, helps hold hormone balances, and stores nutritional vitamins and minerals. Bile is transported through ducts via the gall bladder to the small intestine to assist you digest fats.
Your liver can be subject to a range of diseases and infections inflicting acute (short term) or continual (long term) damage, inflammation, scarring, bile duct obstructions, clotting abnormalities, and liver dysfunction. Liver damage may take place before signs and symptoms such as jaundice, darkish urine, light-coloured stools, nausea, fatigue, diarrhoea, and unexplained weight loss are noticed. Early analysis is crucial in order to minimise injury and preserve liver function.
At your initial consultation, your consultant may request a blood check referred to as a liver investigation to see how your liver is functioning. You may be referred for an ultrasound, CT scan, MRI or liver biopsy.
