One marked symptom of liver failure is jaundice, it discolors the skin and the whites of your eyes to a yellow or orange tint. People with liver failure may also bleed easily or bruise excessively. Ascites, the accumulation of large amounts of fluid in the abdominal cavity, are quite frequently the result of liver failure. People with liver failure may also have a reduction in their ability to think and remember. If liver failure is unarrested, symptoms progress resulting in possible seizures, disorientation, inability to speak, and impaired judgment. Failure of other major organs may occur since the body works cooperatively with each organ. Ultimately death will occur if medical intervention is either not feasible or is not sought. Many who have liver failure can partially arrest symptoms through treatment with medications. However, some with liver failure require a liver transplant in order to recover.
My brother has end stage liver disease. Ember is absolutely correct. If you even suspect get it checked ASAP. If caught early you may be able to greatly reduce further damage and if found to late transplant is the only alternative. Please get checked. Our family is going through hell. My brother is only 35, never drank, never did drugs and now is suffering awfully. He's overweight and other conditions keep him ineligible to be put on a transplant list.
