If you’re suspecting some liver problem, make sure to check out the following list of the most common signs of liver failure. If you experience one, two, or more of the symptoms, make sure to consult your physician as soon as possible and treat the problem.

Let’s take a look at the signs now:

Abdominal pain

Pain in the upper right portion of the abdomen where the liver is located may be a sign of an inflamed or damaged liver.

Jaundice

Bilirubin is a yellow pigment which is created during the breakdown of dead red blood cells in the liver. When the liver is healthy, it removes this pigment together with the old red blood cells. However, when there is a problem with the liver, there is an excessive amount of bilirubin in the blood which results in yellowish eyes and skin.

Nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and loss of appetite

These signs are very common signs of autoimmune hepatitis-a condition in which the immune system attacks its cells and liver tissues. This condition is more common in women than in men.

Confusion

If there is some problem with the liver, the brain may create too much copper and if left untreated, it may lead to Alzheimer’s. Confusion is closely related with an advanced liver failure or cirrhosis.
