The liver is the largest solid organ in the human body, which plays an important role in many processes.
First, the liver helps to eliminate toxins and body waste. He is also involved in the metabolism of drugs
and the formation of amino acids (protein building substances).
The liver usually produces bile-a liquid that supports digestion (especially fats).
This large body stores additional glucose in the form of glycogen and uses it when your body needs fuel.
In fact, blood clotting factors are also produced by the liver.
By the way, it is the only internal organ that has the ability to repair damaged cells and compensate
for long dysfunction. For this reason, liver disease usually causes no symptoms until 75% of
hepatocytes are destroyed
There are many factors that can impair liver function.
In the United States, alcohol and virus abuse are the most common culprits of liver failure.
Although the liver usually destroys alcohol, taking excess can lead to inflammation of the liver.
The damaged liver loses the ability to break down dietary fats. When this fat begins to accumulate in liver tissue,
the condition is called steatosis (fatty liver).
However, people may experience this problem even if they do not drink too much alcohol.
