    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Liver disease: The liver is an important organ responsible for carrying out many vital functions such as metabolism, detoxification of waste, and energy storage. Liver diseases occur due to disturbances of liver functions. Liver diseases include acute and chronic hepatitis, chronic alcoholic liver damage, fatty liver, jaundice, liver cirrhosis, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). Hepatitis occurs due to viral infection leading to liver damage and inflammation, making it difficult for the liver to function properly. The fatty liver could occur due to excess alcohol consumption (alcoholic fatty liver) or other factors (non-alcoholic fatty liver). Liver cirrhosis is the damage of the liver, which causes scarring and liver failure. Jaundice occurs due to the build-up of bilirubin in the blood, which causes yellowing of skin and eyes. Symptoms include dark urine, yellowing of skin and eyes, loss of appetite, fatigue, bloody or dark stools, nausea, and vomiting.
