6 Warning Signs Which Tells that Your Liver is Full of Toxins

Our liver is one of the most vital organs in our body. It has so many functions which helped us attain and maintain good health. One of its essential function is getting rid of body’s toxins, but if our liver couldn’t function well, what would now help in detoxifying our body? That is why it is really important to take care of our liver.

However, now-a-days, liver related illness has become rampant. This may be because an early or warning sign, that our liver is filled with toxins, is just taken for granted or not recognized at all. It is important that we pay attention even to a single or slight change in our body because this might cause to a major problem with our health in the future.   

Symptoms of toxic-filled liver may differ from one person to another, but there are common signs (as listed below) that could be of help for us to be cautious with our liver’s condition.

·         People may have jaundice or a yellow-orange hue to their skin and eyes. This is because the liver cannot metabolize bilirubin – the normal breakdown product of old red blood cells.

·         You may experience abdominal pain and swelling and other stomach related problems. The reason for this is too much consumption of fats that leads to the enlargement of the liver. Too much gas and bloated stomach are also signs of toxic-filled liver. If you liver fails to do its normal functions, you may constantly feel nauseous and even vomit, this is even more common after eating foods rich in fats.

·          You may feel extremely weak and tired all the time. If you likely experience unnatural feelings of fatigue easily and constantly even for just very light activities that require little energy, then, you probably is having an unhealthy liver.

·         Easy bruising and bleeding. It is one of the essential role of the liver to help blood to clot. People with unhealthy liver tend to bruise easily and notice it takes longer to stop bleeding.

·         You may experience change in your urine and stool color. If you have liver problems, you will see that your urine’s color may change to brown that looks like a tea. Stool may become chalky or off-white. However, if there is internal bleeding, the stool may be black and tarry.

·         You may have abnormal blood vessels. Spiderlike blood vessels called spider navi or also called angiomas may likely be visible on the body. They are caused by high levels of oestrogen, which is an indication that the liver is not functioning properly and not metabolising hormones.

Liver diseases can also be inherited (genetic) or can be caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Obesity is also associated with liver damage. And, over time, if you have any of the above-mentioned signs and you take it for granted, damage may result to scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition.

However, this could be prevented. Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any of these sneaky, subtle signs or symptoms that keep on persisting. Remember it is important to make a precautionary measure to avoid any regrets in the end.
