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 bleedin....

The liver plays a major role in metabolism and maintenance of body temperature. It is the important organ that regulates how our body adjusts to the surrounding temperature and how we feel it. In severe liver failure, body temperature is lower than surroundings, which results in shivering.Patients with liver failure have poor immunity and prone to infection.Due to decreased appetite, fever, prolon....

The liver itself has no sensory nerve endings in its interior. It does have sensory nerve endings in its surface.The organ itself can’t feel pain. Even so, the sensation of liver pain can occur because the layer of tissue that surrounds the organ called Glisson’s Capsule does contain nerves.This is most likely to happen when the liver swells, any diseases affecting the liver that increase its size....

Our liver has a tremendous regenerating capacity. So in order for the virus to be successful, it has to elude this destructive power of inflammation and immunity. When the body is attacked by hepatitis virus, liver cells get damage but in the end, the virus is ousted, repairs commence and things are back to normal. Hepatitis viruses cause the body to mount a strong initial response like hepatitis ....

Deficiency of essential fatty acids results in a fatty liver because essential fatty acids are important for a number of biochemical processes, including prostaglandin, thromboxane, lipoxin, & leukotriene pathways. These pathways are critical to the normal functioning of multiple organ systems, including the brain, retina, liver, kidney, adrenal gland, and gonad & also serve a central role....

The enlargement of Liver happens due to continuous transfusions without adequate chelation. If there is no chelation at all it will enlarge quickly and vice versa. So, Hepatomegaly does happen in Thalassemia because Liver stores the excess iron which remains in the body due to inadequate chelation. Is the case of thalassemia, organs are expanding due to the dual effects of low hemoglobin in the....

Portal vein carries things away from the intestines and stomach & headed it to the liver because of which the liver receives regular blood from the artery & the intestines, which is headed from the gut to the liver for processing. These sources of blood drain from the liver in the hepatic vein. Because of this dual blood supply from artery and intestines, losing the portal vein doesn't cau....

Liver sinusoidal endothelial cells are constituted of a sinusoidal wall which is also called as endothelium or endothelial lining. The liver sinusoids are unique capillaries because of the presence of open pores or fenestrae lacking a diaphragm and a basal lamina underneath the endothelium, which differ from other capillaries in the body. The capillary endothelium plays a very important role in re....

The liver itself doesn’t react with hydrogen peroxide, an enzyme known as catalase react with hydrogen peroxide to detoxify this compound into oxygen gas & water. Our liver is important for cleaning up any potentially dangerous substances we consume causing many chemical reactions in the body.

The liver is the only organ in the living being which has the capability to regenerate after injury and surgeries. In mammals only mass of liver is replaced but not shape therefore the process of regeneration is compensatory growth. But in lower size species both shape and size can be replaced. The liver regeneration is due to replication of liver cell which follows the removal of tissue (partial ....
