The liver is divided into two lobes by the middle hepatic vein: the right lobe of liver and the left lobe of the liver. The right lobe of the liver is larger than the left lobe of the liver. The right lobe liver has four sections divided by the portal vein. Each of these sections contains branches of the hepatic veins, portal veins, hepatic arteries, and bile ducts. The distribution of blood in....

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....

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....

Pain in belly usually comes from overextending a movement or overworking muscles. When you dance it creates physical pressures on organs, which causes pain. Visceral pain takes place when pain receptors in the abdomen, pelvis, chest, or int....

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....

Cattle are born and raised on pastures where their diet consists generally of grasses, legumes, and other forages. These foods are rich in fibre and lower in digestibility of nutrients. The stomach of cattle is made of four different compartments which help to digest these fibrous materials. That's how their digestive systems are designed to function. Farmers feed a lot of corn to cows in order....

The liver plays an important role in the digestion. The reason for this is that when digested nutrients from the small intestine drain directly into veins which connect into the portal vein. Therefore these nutrients need to be filtered as a first stop before going to the rest of the organs. Blood from the digestive system is full of nutrients impaired from intestinal digestion. Sugars, fatty acid....

Gluconeogenesis is a metabolic process that results in the generation of glucose from non-carbohydrate carbon substrates like lactate, glycerol, and glycogenic amino acids. Liver cells or hepatocytes have glucagon receptors. Gluconeogenesis occurs in the kidneys and only in the liver. This is due to the fact that the liver has evolved to be the seat of metabolism in our bodies. Its primary functio....

Hormones which stimulate glycogenolysis in the liver are Glucagon, catecholamines, Adrenaline thyroxine and sometimes insulin deficiency also stimulate glycogenolysis. Adrenaline is produced due to the condition of stress which stimulates glycogenolysis in the liver of human beings. Glucagon is a hormone, which is produced by alpha cells of the pancreas in the liver. It results in raising the conc....

There is a misunderstanding that eating fish or meat the increased risk of developing hepatic encephalopathy in the patient with liver cirrhosis. Fish contain essential fatty acids in their natural and unprocessed form. Wild fish should be proffered instead of farmed fishes. Fishes like Sardines, kippers, mackerel, herring, anchovies, and wild salmon can be eaten by the liver patient.

The skin is the largest external organ of the body, with about total area of about 20 square feet. It helps in protects us from microbes and the elements helps regulate body temperature and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. The largest internal organ is the liver. It is also called the heaviest organ, with an average of 1.6 kilograms (3.5 pounds). Functions of the liver are bile ....
