Loss of liver function.
Treatment can help, but this condition can’t be cured
Requires a medical diagnosis
Lab tests or imaging always required
Liver failure occurs either suddenly (acute) or gradually (chronic). Causes include a reaction to medication, high doses of acetaminophen or paracetamol, hepatitis infection, alcohol abuse and advanced fatty liver.
Yellowed skin and eyes (jaundice) along with stomach pain and swelling are symptoms of liver failure.
Treatment options include medication, dietary changes or possibly a liver transplant.
