The liver has a vital and vital role in the body, therefore, it is extremely important to pay attention to the health of this organ.

To have a healthy liver, you should eat healthy food, get some exercise and have enough sleep (minimum 7 hours).

When something goes wrong with the liver, different functions and parts of the body may show symptoms. There are several types of liver problems, among which are cystic disease, hepatitis, fatty liver and gallstones



You should definitely consult a doctor if you have any of the symptoms mentioned here since it could be hepatitis, kidney failure or a chronic liver disease.

Common Symptoms:

Loss of Appetite

Loss of appetite is one of the first symptoms to appear. People who suffer from liver damage may feel that they do not want to eat anything.

It is necessary to know that bile helps to chemically decompose the lipids so they can be digested. The problem arises when the food is not digested properly, which gives as experience the lack of appetite and even a severe loss of volume. People who do not eat will feel weak and tired all the time.

Yellow skin

Not only the skin turns yellow, but also the tongue, eyes, nails, and fingertips.



This phenomenon is called jaundice and is caused when the liver is not working properly, and instead of getting rid of bilirubin (a yellow pigment) along with the old cells of red blood cells, it accumulates in the blood and tissues of the body.

Bilirubin accumulates in the bloodstream and then in the skin, therefore, it adopts a yellowish tone.

Visit the doctor if you notice that the areas mentioned become yellow.

Changes in the color of the urine

If you realize that urine takes on a darker color than normal, as well as orange, amber or coffee, it can be a sign of liver damage.

However, dark urine can be caused by several other factors, including side effects of antibiotics, a urinary tract infection, taking vitamin B supplements, enzyme deficiencies, dehydration, and kidney problems.

When the liver is unable to remove bilirubin through the kidneys, the color of the urine changes.

Consult a doctor immediately if you notice that the appearance of your urine becomes dark.

Changes in the abdominal area

Another sign of liver damage is when you feel changes in the abdomen, for example, swelling. Medically, these symptoms are related to a problem called “ascites”.

Ascites is an accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity, which occurs due to advanced liver disease or cirrhosis. It can also be caused by other disorders that do not correspond to the liver.

If you feel some changes in the abdomen, the best thing to do is to consult the doctor.
