The liver is involved in metabolizing many toxins, including drugs and medications, chemicals, and natural substances. Liver disease causes the liver to function abnormally, as a result enhancing formation of toxins which results in inflammation. This further erodes stomach lining forming sores in the stomach known as peptic ulcers. Patients with peptic ulcer may be at an increased risk of bleeding due to coagulation disorders (body's inability to control blood clotting) and thrombocytopenia.
