What are signs that your liver is not functioning properly?

The liver is a large organ that is around the size of a football. It's located on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your rib cage. The liver is responsible for digesting meals and eliminating toxins from the body.

Liver illness can be passed down the generations (genetic). Viruses, alcohol usage, and obesity are just a few of the things that can harm the liver.

Damage to the liver over time can cause scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, which is a life-threatening condition. However, early treatment may allow the liver to recover.

The Symptoms

Liver illness does not necessarily manifest itself in the form of visible signs and symptoms. If you have liver disease, you may notice the following signs and symptoms:

  1. Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
  2. Swelling and pain in the abdomen
  3. Legs and ankles are swollen.
  4. Skin that is itchy
  5. Urine color is dark.
  6. The color of the stool is light.
  7. Fatigue that lasts a long time
  8. Vomiting or nausea
  9. Appetite loss.
  10. A proclivity  bruising

When should you see a doctor?

If you have any persistent signs or symptoms that concern you, schedule an appointment with your doctor. If your abdomen discomfort is so terrible that you can't sit still, seek medical help right once.
