You need to be vigilant against liver disease. We recommend that you know the symptoms.

Especially, pay attention to condition changing and development so that you are not at risk of fatal liver damage that may lead to liver cancer.

Here are the signs that are often experienced by patients with fatal liver disorder that can be recognized, as reported by Prevention:

1. Abdominal pain

Pain, swelling or stiffness in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen is a sign of your heart / liver that you may be in danger.

2. Jaundice

When your body is damaged due to old blood cells, one of the byproducts created is a yellowish substance called bilirubin.

While a healthy liver has no problem removing bilirubin, liver disease allows bilirubin to build up in your blood that can change the skin and the eyes become yellow.

3. Joint pain

Arthritis such as joint pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue and loss of appetite are all inter-related symptoms of liver disease, especially autoimmune hepatitis.

Autoimmune hepatitis is a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the cells and tissues of your heart and it is more common in women than men, according to the National Institutes of Health.

4. Skin Spots

Because the heart does not clean your blood properly, then you could have clotting problems near the surface of your skin.

This is a sort of problem that could lead to the spider angioma or large skin blemishes that resembles the shape of a spider or an asterisk. They can generally be found in the chest.

5. Confusion

A damaged liver allows too much copper to build up in the blood and brain. This can cause confusion like people with Alzheimer’s.
