Liver diseases and symptoms

The liver is one of the most important parts of the human body and helps in the detoxification of the organism. Fatty liver, Hepatitis C, Liver cirrhosis, Jaundice, Pancreatitis, Inflammation, stones, or gallbladder blockage are some of the most common liver diseases. In early stage of liver disease, the symptoms are nonspecific. Development of fatigue, pain abdomen, recurrent fever, anorexia (decrease appetite), dark colored urine, yellowish sclera of eyes or inability to concentrate can be few early signs of liver disease. Signs of advanced liver disease are-
1. Bleeding (hematemesis)– Through mouth or per rectum.
2. Jaundice- Yellowish discoloration of skin and sclera of eyes.
3. Ascites- Collection of fluid into abdomen leading to tense abdomen. It is a sign of advanced liver failure. Such patients are at risk of further kidney damage due to fluid removing (diuretic) medications.
4. Hepatic encephalopathy- The condition from inability to concentrate or sleep deprivation to end stage coma. It is a sign of advanced liver disease and such patients should be in regular follow up doctors. These patients should avoid constipation and sedative (sleep causing) drugs.

Liver cancer- Most commonly includes hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and liver metastasis from colon or rectal cancers. Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma are now being commonly seen. Most common symptoms are fatigue, loss of appetite and weight loss. Liver cancers are mostly diagnosed with triple contrast CT scan of abdomen. In most patient’s surgery offers long term relief. The most commonly performed surgery is partial excision of liver called right or left hepatectomy . In cases were cancer is limited to left lateral segment of liver a left lateral segmental excision of liver is performed laparoscopically with excellent results. In most cases of liver metastasis we do laparoscopic metastatectomy. Even with removal of 60% of liver the liver regains its normal volume within 2 weeks, so a major liver resection of 60% can be done safely in most patients. In cases were surgery cannot be performed initially the option is to give TACE (trans arterial chemoembolization) initially which shrinks the tumor followed by surgical excision. The acclaimed and Best Liver Cancer doctor in Lucknow – Dr. Waliullah Siddiqui manages influential, effective treatments related to Liver and Liver Cancer. He has treated several liver cancer patients and has given them a new life. Liver Cirrhosis: Liver cirrhosis or chronic liver parenchymal disease (CLD) is fibrotic condition of liver leading to end to end stage liver failure. The common causative factors are hepatitis virus (HBV, HBC), alcohol consumption and obesity (Non alcoholic steatohepatis or NASH). Among rare causes of cirrhosis are Wilson disease, autoimmune etc. Sometimes the cause of liver cirrhosis is not known and is called cryptogenic liver cirrhosis. The liver once damaged can't be undone, but if liver cirrhosis is diagnosed at an early stage further damage can be limited and, rarely, reversed.
