Cirrhosis - symptoms and how to test
Scarring (fibrosis) of the liver due to chronic liver injury is known as cirrhosis. Because of the scar tissue, the liver is unable to function normally. Adults between the ages of 45 and 54 have the most significant risk of developing cirrhosis. Cirrhosis affects around one in every 200 American adults aged 45–54. Tests aid in the detection of hepatic damage due to cirrhosis. They might be helpful in determining the aetiology of the ailment for your doctor. Lab tests for the liver evaluate the number of enzymes and proteins produced by the organ.
