The liver is the largest solid organ in the body, it is estimated to weigh around 3 pounds in adulthood. The liver helps in the body’s metabolic function and immune system, it filters the blood coming from the digestive tract before passing it to the rest of the body.
The liver’s function is believed to be so important that it is considered impossible for anyone to survive without a liver. The liver is mostly located in the right upper portion of the stomach, just below the diaphragm.
Liver failure is known to occur when large parts of the liver become damaged beyond repair and the liver can no longer function.
The most common causes of chronic liver failure are:
• Hepatitis B
• Hepatitis C
• Long-term alcohol consumption
• Hepatitis A
• Malnutrition etc.
