About the disease

Liver fibrosis is a disease whereas matrix proteins accumulate excessively in the liver. As a result, formation of scar tissue in the liver begins. Such scarring is a result of a long-time inflammation, which developed when the dead liver cells were replaced by the regenerative ones and the nodules formed if the regeneration led to the liver becoming hard. Overall, fibrosis means a process of accumulation of scar tissue in the body. If not treated on time, liver fibrosis can lead to such serious conditions as cirrhosis or liver failure.

Normally, new regenerative cells which replace the old ones, do not cause scarring. Nonetheless, if the scar tissue builds up faster than it can be naturally broken down and totally removed from the liver, liver fibrosis develops. There are several factors which can lead to such scar formation. The most common one is hepatitis, which is infection of the liver. Hepatitis C and B are the most dangerous in respect to the possibility of scar formation. Another probable cause of liver fibrosis is an excessive alcohol consumption, which leads to toxins stagnation in the liver. Previous traumas of the liver can lead to scarring as well. Liver fibrosis is more common in men than in women, as their liver forms scar tissue more actively as a way of protection liver by the immune system from adverse factors. Liver fibrosis is more common in people over 50 years. 

Nonetheless, liver fibrosis almost in all cases develops as a result of another disease or infection. It`s almost never a primary condition and can be avoided if other liver diseases are treated on time. It may take several years or decades before liver fibrosis first manifests itself as the process of scar tissue formation is usually very long.

Symptoms

  • Pain in the liver
  • Liver is stone-hard upon poking
  • Jaundice
  • Reduced appetite
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination, a doctor will palpate the liver area to determine if it is hard in consistency and if it is painful.
  • A blood test may be ordered to check the liver function and determine if it works properly. It can also determine if a person has liver infection.
  • A biopsy is used to examine the liver cells under the microscope and determine if there is scarring.

Treatment

  • Currently conservative treatment is mostly used to treat liver fibrosis. If liver fibrosis has been caused by other infections, such as hepatitis, these infections need to be treated first and foremost. A person also needs to lead healthy diet avoiding eating big amounts of salt and fat. A person needs to abstain from alcohol as well. In most cases, it is possible to slow down and even prevent cirrhosis. The cells are able to regenerate properly if a person leads healthy lifestyle in all respects.
