1. Yellow eyes

This is a sign that the liver is not working well and is probably one of the most characteristic symptoms of liver disease. Bilirubin is a yellow compound in the blood that the liver normally breaks down so that it can be excreted from the body, but if the liver does not work well, bilirubin can build up in the blood, which is manifested by the yellow color of the sclera.

2. Flatulence

If the abdomen swells and stays that way, it can be a bigger problem than the usual bloating due to indigestion. Elevated pressure inside the blood vessels around the liver can lead to an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. It would be a good idea to go to a doctor who will determine if the bloating is due to food, gas, or fluid in your abdomen.


3. Itching

Liver disease can also cause itching all over the body. It is not yet known exactly whether this is related to bile salt or bile acid. Bile is a digestive substance produced by the liver, but in people with primary biliary cirrhosis (an autoimmune liver disease that leads to bile duct dysfunction), bile can build up in the body and cause symptoms such as itching.

4. Fatigue

Constant fatigue is almost always a sign that something is wrong, and it is possible that it is due to liver disease.

5. Distraction

If you feel like you’ve suddenly started to lose things or feel lost and confused, don’t attribute it to fatigue or stress. Hepatic encephalopathy is a condition that occurs when the liver cannot properly remove toxins from the body and usually occurs in people with chronic liver disease, cirrhosis, and hepatitis. If you notice these symptoms, see a doctor right away.
