Liver problems are not easy to diagnose, and this is because the symptoms are usually similar to other common illnesses. Genetics and other factors, including excessive alcohol use, poor diet, obesity, and viruses, can also cause liver problems. Over time, these factors can lead to scarring (cirrhosis) of the liver, which can cause liver failure, a life-threatening condition. Early detection and treatment are essential to prevent liver failure.
If you notice that your skin and eyes appear yellowish and tire easily, you may have liver problems. Discoloration of urine and stool, nausea or vomiting, abdominal pains, or a loss of appetite may indicate liver problems too. The best thing to do at this point is to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.>
