  • Morbid obesity affects the liver: Almost one-third of all adults suffer from chronic fatty liver disease, which can lead to infections and even trigger cancer. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Chronic liver failure, which is also called end-stage liver disease, progresses over months, years, or even decades. (nih.gov)
  • 2 While chronic hepatitis C and alcohol-related liver disease are the most common causes of cirrhosis, the incidence of cirrhosis caused by nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is rising due to increasing rates of obesity. (nih.gov)
  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease associated with head trauma. (jove.com)

disorders


  • Gastroenterology is the study and treatment of digestive disorders and diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which spans from the mouth to the anus along the alimentary canal, the pathway by which food enters the body and solid wastes are expelled. (lifescript.com)

gall


  • Epsom salts are MgSO4 -- magnesium sulfate -- an intestinal purge, and also a muscle relaxant for the bile ducts and the gall bladder, to prevent cramps and retention of gall stones. (curezone.org)
  • Olive oil, taken following the above procedure, causes the liver ducts and the gall bladder to forcefully contract, and expel their collection of gall gravel and gall stones. (curezone.org)

digestive


liver disease


  • Available at: https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/liver-disease/cirrhosis. (westhillshospital.com)
  • With end-stage liver disease, the liver can no longer perform important functions or effectively replace damaged cells. (nih.gov)
  • Alcohol-related liver disease. (nih.gov)
  • However, heavy alcohol use over several years makes a person more likely to develop alcohol-related liver disease. (nih.gov)
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). (nih.gov)

cholesterol


  • The liver plays a crucial role in numerous bodily functions, including the production of blood clotting factors, production of bile, cholesterol metabolism, maintenance of normal blood sugar concentrations, and detoxification of toxins like alcohol and drugs. (westhillshospital.com)
  • Your bile contains too much cholesterol. (mayoclinic.org)
  • Normally, your bile contains enough chemicals to dissolve the cholesterol excreted by your liver. (mayoclinic.org)
  • But if your liver excretes more cholesterol than your bile can dissolve, the excess cholesterol may form into crystals and eventually into stones. (mayoclinic.org)
  • The most common type of gallstone, called a cholesterol gallstone, often appears yellow in color. (mayoclinic.org)

cancer


  • Liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma) used to be among the less common cancer types in Germany. (medicalxpress.com)

hepatocellular carcinoma


  • In vivo experimental models of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that recapitulate the human disease provide a valuable platform for research into disease pathophysiology and for the preclinical evaluation of novel therapies. (jove.com)

flow

body
