Over the past few years, there has been a tremendous change in our lifestyle. Unhealthy eating habits accompanied by consumption of alcohol have started putting unnecessary strain on the liver. This overworking of our Liver in turn affects other organs of our body, thus it is very important that we take good care of it!
The Liver is one of the most vital organs present in our body and plays a major role in growth & development and metabolism while maintaining proper sugar and cholesterol levels. It also plays an important role in immunity and thus helps the body in fighting a wide range of diseases as well.
Due to our changing lifestyle patterns, alcohol is consumed either as a status symbol or to cope up with stress. Even though we are fully aware of its ill effects, we usually tend to ignore them due to our affluent lifestyles. Alcohol puts a lot of stress on the liver and this continuous state of stress usually results in liver damage!
The liver is in a way the ‘exit gate’ of our body. Junk food, fast food and alcohol affect its functioning capacity. Once the Liver loses, its ability to function the rest of the body faces a lot of difficulty in expelling out the harmful/toxic substances, thus resulting in accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, abnormal blood coagulation, confusion state & drowsiness.
Thus, it is very important to take care of one’s Liver because once liver cirrhosis progresses beyond a certain extent; ‘Liver Transplantation’ might be the only effective solution.
