The liver is a vital organ in the body. We all are aware of the importance of liver, but rarely do we know, that the liver performs hundreds of tasks constantly. Liver stores energy, eliminates toxins, helps in metabolism and provides support to many other functions that ensure well-being and good health. However, unhealthy lifestyles, alcohol etc disturbs the normal functioning of liver, resulting in down fall of the liver functions.
Because of the lifestyle changes, nowadays even younger people are also affected by liver disease. Not only related to alcohol, but non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is also on a rise because of the increased use of processed and junk foods.
Common symptoms of liver diseases are:
