Liver disease - Definition


Definition


A diseased liver is a liver affected by a pathology and may be asymptomatic for a long time despite the existence of liver damage. Numerous diseases can affect the liver like hepatitis from medications, viruses and toxins, cancers, often alcoholic cirrhosis, the impact of heart failure on the liver, and congenital or genetic disorders... In general, liver damage is suspected when the increase of certain proteins is found on a blood sample, such as transaminases, alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin, or the gamma glutamyltransferases. An ultrasound or CT scan can be used to identify liver damage. Some causes can be treated and eventually cured, others may be slowed, others are incurable. Sometimes the damage is too great and requires a liver transplant.
