Sick liver symptoms. The liver weighs an average of one and a half kilograms and is the largest gland in the body and one of the internal organs that regenerates quickly if part of it is affected.
Over 25% of the liver can be removed and, in a maximum of five months, it will grow back to its original shape and size. This is possible thanks to a very rich vascularity, which allows it to perform its main tasks, to eliminate toxins from the body. Although it can regenerate quickly, poor nutrition and daily stress damage its functioning, causing serious conditions such as cirrhosis or hepatitis C.
Sick liver symptoms
– Nausea and vomiting
– Bad breath;
– Changing body odor;
– Presence of dark circles;
– Feeling dizzy;
– Pain in the right side of the abdomen;
– Changing skin color;
– Swelling of the eyes;
– The presence of sudden brown spots on the skin.
It should be noted that the anatomical structure of the liver of the “full” organ does not allow the location of nerve fibers of sensitivity inside it, but only in its shell (Glisson liver capsule).
The pain that actually holds the liver, as an organ, has as a mechanism the sudden distension of the capsule in a short period of time, of various causes. Thus, the liver hurts in exceptional situations, when there are abscesses on the liver, large tumors on its surface or when the heart fails to collect blood and lets it accumulate, dilating the liver.
Liver pain – hepatalgia – can occur in the following diseases:
* Heart failure (heart fatigue);
* Liver cancer (hepatoma);
* Liver metastases of cancers located elsewhere;
* Mechanical jaundice;
* Large liver cysts;
* Angiocolitis (bile duct infection);
