Scar tissue cannot do what healthy liver tissue does make protein, help fight infections, clean the blood, help digest food, and store energy for when you need it and supply blood to the heart at its regulated rate. Scar tissue also blocks the normal flow of blood through the liver. Too much scar tissue means that your liver cannot work properly. To live, you need a liver that works. Cirrhosis can be life threatening, but if the Liver Cirrhosis patient comes on time then there can be regenerated by Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.
What are the symptoms of liver cirrhosis?
You may have no symptoms at all in the early stages. As cirrhosis progresses you may
feel tired or weak
lose your appetite
feel sick to your stomach
Cirrhosis can also lead to other problems.
Liver Cirrhosis you may bruise or bleed easily, or have nosebleeds.
Liver Cirrhosis bloating or swelling may occur as fluid builds up in the abdomen or legs at late stage.
Fluid build up in the abdomen is called ascites (ah-SI-teez) and in the legs is called edema.
Medications may have a stronger effect on you because your liver does not break them down as quickly.
Waste materials from food and chemicals may build up in the blood or brain and may cause confusion or difficulty thinking. For example, protein that you eat breaks down into chemicals like ammonia. When red blood cells get old, they break down and leave a substance called bilirubin (bil-ih-ROO-bun).
A healthy liver removes these by-products, but a patient with liver cirrhosis leaves them in the body.
Blood pressure may increase in the vein entering the liver, a condition called portal hypertension.
Enlarged veins, called varices (VARE-ah-seez), may develop in the esophagus and stomach. Varices can bleed suddenly, causing vomiting of blood or passing of blood in a bowel movement.
Kidneys may not work properly or may fail.
As cirrhosis progresses, your skin and the whites of your eyes may turn yellow, a condition called jaundice (JON-diss). You may also develop severe itching or gallstones.
In the early stages, cirrhosis causes your liver to swell. Then, as more scar tissue replaces normal tissue, the liver shrinks.
About 5 percent of patients with cirrhosis also get cancer of the liver.All these conditions can be reverse in early stage with Acupuncture and herbal medicine intensive medications, as for late stage Liver Cirrhosis recovery may depends on individual's others internal organ's conditions. When the others organ's condition is strong then the patient may stand a better change for recovery.
