Future Market Insights
Cirrhosis causes the liver to shrink and harden which makes it difficult for the blood to flow into the portal vein in the liver .The liver becomes lumpy and hard, and will start to fail. Basically the liver is a hardy organ and has the ability to regenerate damaged cells. Cirrhosis develops in the liver when factors like chronic viral infections and alcohol are present for a long period of time. When this condition happens, the liver becomes scarred and injured. Scared liver cannot function properly which ultimately results in cirrhosis. The main causes of cirrhosis are excess alcohol consumption, hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases.
There are mainly two stages of cirrhosis: compensated and decompensated. In compensated cirrhosis, there are no signs of symptoms which means there is a still presence of healthy liver cells that can meet the body needs. Whereas, decompensated cirrhosis causes symptoms such as fluid will build up in the belly (ascites), toxins will build up in the blood causing confusion, occurrence of gallstones, etc. Chances of these problems can be reduced by keeping a healthy weight, eating a low fat diet, not smoking, sticking to the treatments, not drinking. Treatments like medications, regular doctor visits and lifestyle changes can sometimes prevent or delay the further damaging of the liver. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), cirrhosis is the 12th leading cause of death due to the diseases in the United States. Also it is estimated that cirrhosis occurs in 2 individuals per 100,000 individuals. Cirrhosis is more common in men than women.
