6 Early Signs Your Liver Is Damaged
1. Jaundice – Yellowing of Skin and Eyes
Commonly known as Jaundice, the U.K.’s National Health Service lists the yellowing of one’s skin and the whites of their eyes as a symptom of liver damages.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine states that this occurs as result of a yellowish substance called Bilirubin building up in excess in the blood, because the liver is unable to accurately process it when it is injured.
This is a symptom that commonly presents itself when the liver gets damaged due to a few particular diseases such as hepatitis, cancer or as a result of excessive drinking, consuming of and exposure to toxic elements and drugs like ecstasy which could lead to a plethora of infections.
