According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), liver diseases are the tenth most common cause of death in India. Since the liver is a multi-functionary organ, it is susceptible to viruses, toxic substances and contaminants present in food and water.
Role of Liver:
"Liver abnormalities are increasing in India, because of rising obesity, alcohol abuse and liver infections. Also, liver disease is no longer restricted to age, as people below the age of 40 are also witnessing incidence of liver diseases," B.R. Das, Advisor and Mentor - R&D, SRL Diagnostics said in a statement.
- An unhealthy lifestyle and
- Faulty eating patterns and
- Viruses such as hepatitis A, B and C can disrupt the liver functions
- Increased consumption of alcoholic drinks
- High cholesterol-inducing junk foods, obesity and Type 2 diabetes can also trigger the disease.
- It can also be inherited or be genetic.
"Followed by the brain, the liver is the second largest solid organ in the human body and performs a long list of complex functions to keep the body hale and hearty," said Anupam Sibal, Group Medical Director, Apollo Hospitals.
Inflamed or injured liver cells leak higher than normal amounts of certain chemicals, including liver enzymes, into the bloodstream, which can result in elevated liver enzymes on blood tests.
However, "the liver is an uncomplaining worker and often does not show any significant signs of damage. But at the same time, more than a 100 disorders can affect the liver”. Because "the symptoms of liver disease usually do not appear till the disease is well advanced, early diagnosis is the key," Das said.
