How to identify cirrhosis disease

Cirrhosis, frequently the result of a viral disease or chronic alcoholism, occurs when liver cells are damaged and cannot fix themselves.
The American Academy of Family Physicians says common symptoms of cirrhosis contain:
  • Losing weight.
  • Loss of hunger.
  • Sickness or throwing up blood.
  • Feeling tired, weak or confused, or having difficulty paying attention.
  • Swelling of the abdomen.
  • Itchy skin or red palms.
  • Menstrual troubles.
  • Jaundice, a yellowing of the skin.
  • Urine that's dark brown.
