Understanding Hepatic Cirrhosis
Hepatic cirrhosis, a condition characterized by severe liver scarring, can be caused by various liver diseases and conditions, such as hepatitis or chronic alcoholism, as stated by the Mayo Clinic. In the event of liver injury, scar tissue forms to repair itself.
As cirrhosis worsens, scar tissue accumulates, making it difficult for the liver to function correctly. It is impossible to undo the damage caused by cirrhosis, but an early diagnosis can make it easier to control the condition.
According to MEDizzy, the common symptoms of cirrhosis include fatigue, bleeding, bruising, nausea, swelling, weight loss, itchy skin, yellow discoloration of the skin and eyes, fluid buildup in the abdomen, spider-like blood vessels on the skin, redness in the palms of the hands, pale fingernails, clubbing of the fingers, confusion, drowsiness, and slurred speech.
Individuals who consume large amounts of alcohol, are overweight, or have viral hepatitis are more likely to develop cirrhosis. The condition can be prevented by reducing alcohol consumption, maintaining a healthy diet, controlling weight, and reducing the risk of hepatitis.
