Liver is one of the largest glands in our body and its main function is to assist in regulating the process of digestion. It also helps in eliminating toxic substances from the body and in removing dead Red Blood Cells. Cirrhosis is a slowly progressing disease in which healthy liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue, eventually preventing the liver from functioning properly. The scar tissue blocks the flow of blood through the liver and slows the processing of nutrients, hormones, drugs, and naturally produced toxins. Any damage to the liver can lead to various digestive problems and diseases like jaundice etc. Upon consultation, your gastroenterologist will try to understand the signs and symptoms of the problem and might do some diagnostic tests to understand the health of the organ. The details of treatment shall be shared with you after your doctor carefully examines the diagnostic reports.
