What is liver disease, and how does it affect you?

Liver disease is a serious illness that affects a person's ability to live independently and healthily. The liver performs many functions including assisting your body in digestion and removing the toxins from your blood.

Damage to the liver can be caused by viruses, toxins, scarring, liver cancer or being exposed to other people's bodily fluids that contain additional illnesses. If you work in the health care field, you're at a particularly high risk of developing a type of liver disease.

What are some symptoms of liver disease you should watch out for?

Common symptoms of liver disease include yellowing of the skin and eyes, fatigue, persistent itching and dark urine.

Other symptoms include weight loss, nausea and vomiting, weakness and upper quadrant abdominal pain. There are a variety of causes for liver diseases, so your medical provider needs to determine the cause to advocate for the correct treatment.

How can you find out if you have liver disease?

You may find out by going to a medical provider. He or she can test for liver problems with a number of scans, blood tests and biopsies.

Once diagnosed, your symptoms and results may remain stable for some time or slowly begin to worsen. It's normal for symptoms to be specific to your particular kind of liver disease until late-stage liver disease and failure, when symptoms such as jaundice and pain become more common.

Those who suffer from this disease may have a right to disability benefits. Your attorney can help you file an application, so you can focus on your health.
