What is Liver Cirrhosis?
Cirrhosis is a late-stage liver disease in which healthy liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue, causing permanent damage to the liver. Scar tissue prevents your liver from functioning properly.
Development of any disease in the liver damages healthy liver cells which can lead to death or inflammation of the cells.
The scar tissue hinders the liver’s capacity to process nutrients, hormones, medicines, and harmful toxins and limits the blood flow through the liver. Moreover, it reduces the liver’s ability to produce proteins and other substances. Over time, cirrhosis prevents the liver from functioning normally. Cirrhosis in its advanced stages can be fatal.
