The liver is one of the main organs. It is a large digestive gland weighing about 1.5 kg. The liver takes an active part in the metabolism, helps in the production of bile, produces a synthesis of various vitamins and proteins. It also participates in the process of iron exchange, the accumulation of glycogen, which is the source of muscle energy, processes toxins into safe substances.
Therefore, the general condition of the body depends on the state of the liver. Symptoms of liver disease are best revealed in advance and in time to seek medical help.
If you feel an unpleasant heaviness in the right upper quadrant, weakness in the whole body is the very first symptoms of liver disease that can not be ignored.
Now let's briefly consider the main signs of liver disease:
I. In addition to the main symptoms of liver disease, nausea, loose stools, runny nose, jaundice can occur. With chronic hepatitis, there is pain in the liver, the temperature rises, the spleen increases, skin irritation occurs;
II. With fatty hepatosis there is a shiver in the hands and eyelids, muscle atrophy, a feeling of raspiraniya in the right pre-ribs;
III. With cirrhosis and pseudo-cirrhosis, there is also pain in the right side, a swollen abdomen, irritation of the skin. The hair falls on the body, the sleep is broken, weakness and nausea begin.
In some cases, the pain can be very sharp, in the form of colic. This indicates a possible cholelithiasis. Often the symptoms of liver disease are manifested with nervous disorders. This is due to a violation of the normal operation of the liver, which leads to the accumulation of various toxic substances. An increased amount of toxins breaks the metabolism and causes a breakdown in the nervous system.
Why do symptoms of liver and gallbladder? What are the reasons?
The liver cleanses the blood from the remnants of red blood cells, obsolete 120-day period, as well as from excess bilirubin. In the event that the cells and membranes located between the bile ducts are in a normal state, the filtered bilirubin goes along with the bile into the gallbladder or duodenum. Subsequently, it is removed from the intestine, antiseptic and staining the feces in green. If there is a complication of parenchyma and bile duct tissue caused by excessive consumption of dairy products, broths, alcohol or some kind of pathology, bilirubin partially remains in the blood, and partially settles on the walls of the ducts in the form of so-called warts. In such cases, after eating food, the capacity of the liver for processing decreases. Against this background, the amount of bile in the gallbladder sharply increases. Bilirubin, which enters here along the ducts together with bile, begins to transform into crystals. There is an increasing tightening of the ducts with cholesterol, which has a yellow-brown color.
In such cases, the liver is cleaned immediately with a clean intestine in order to ensure free exit of toxins and prevent secondary intestinal intoxication. If there are stones in the liver, even a small one, the result is a metabolic disorder. To improve the performance of all liver functions, it is recommended to consume more fruits that contain vitamins.
The gallbladder is a bile accumulator with a capacity of approximately 40-70 ml. The bile produced by the liver partially leaves with blood, and partially enters the gallbladder. From the gallbladder, bile passes through the ducts into the intestines, where it participates in the breakdown of fats. Causes of obstruction of the ducts may be tumors, gases or drugs that cause spasms. Symptoms of gallbladder disease bitterness in the mouth, complexion earthy, pain in the heart, in the sides and under the liver, joint pains, hips and knees.
