Title: Sunshine Summit Lodge - Liver diseases caused due to Alcoholism


1
Liver Diseases Caused Due To Alcoholism
2
  • Alcoholic liver disease comes as a result of
    excessive intake of alcohol. Generally, it
    happens after years of alcoholism, though there
    are cases where binge drinking has caused this
    condition.

Over drinking of alcohol severely damages the
liver tissues, resulting in poor absorption of
nutrients leading to malnutrition. This
malnutrition later causes liver disease. Factors
related to genetics can also play a role when it
comes to liver disease.

  • Certain people are more susceptible to develop
    alcohol related liver diseases, while others are
    not. Alcohol related liver diseases are
    progressive and can be categorized into three
    different types. The differentiation of types is
    based on the degree of damage caused to the
    liver. These types are fatty liver, hepatitis and
    cirrhosis. The symptoms of alcohol related liver
    diseases can vary to a great degree, based on the
    stage or specific type of the sickness.

Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Related Liver
Disease
  • At the initial stage, alcohol related liver
    diseases may not show any symptom. But as and
    when the disease starts progressing, a few vague
    symptoms could be seen. These symptoms will
    greatly differ on the basis of the stage of the
    disease. When it comes to fatty liver, symptoms
    other than an enlarged liver may not be seen.
    Slightly enlarged liver is the most commonly
    observed symptom of fatty liver. This condition
    is the result of the accumulation of fat in the
    liver from alcohol. The condition is reversible,
    and it generally does not deteriorate the
    functions of the liver.

  • If you have a family member or friend who is
    addicted to alcohol and wants to get rid of the
    addiction, then you must direct them to a
    rehabilitation centres like Sunshine Summit
    Lodge.

Often times, even though the addict knows the
negative effects of their addiction, they are
unable to break the habit and therefore become
prey to deadly diseases which could even take
their life. As per Sunshine Summit Lodge, most
alcoholics would like to get rid of their
addiction but have failed repeatedly in their
effort.

  • When the liver disease due to alcoholism reaches
    the stage of hepatitis, few symptoms can be
    observed. The most common symptoms are stomach
    pain, vomiting, nausea, lack of appetite which is
    followed by weight loss.
  • Liver cirrhosis is the third stage. In this state
    nodules and scar tissues could develop inside the
    liver. This is a critical stage and liver
    functions will be severely affected. The symptoms
    at this stage include easy bruising and bleeding,
    jaundice and water or fluid retention in the
    abdomen and legs.
