Home » Liver Problems
There are many different types of liver disease. But no matter what type you have, the damage to your liver is likely to progress in a similar way.
Whether your liver is infected with a virus, injured by chemicals, or under attack from your own immune system, the basic danger is the same - that your liver will become so damaged that it can no longer work to keep you alive.
Anything that keeps your liver from doing its job may put your life in danger.
The Healthy Liver
Your liver helps fight infections and cleans your blood. It also helps digest food and stores energy for when you need it. A healthy liver has the amazing ability to grow back, or regenerate, when it is damaged.
Anything that keeps your liver from doing its job - or from growing back after injury - may put your life in danger.
