Liver disease: The warning sign when you go to the loo that may be a clue – ‘Tell your GP’


How does alcohol-related liver disease occur

Liver is one of the most complex organs in your body able to filter toxins, regulate cholesterol and blood sugar, aid digestion and help fight infections.

Each time your liver has to filter alcohol, some of its cells die. However, it can develop new ones.

Although the “resilient” organ is able to regenerate itself, excess drinking can lower this ability.

“This can result in serious and permanent damage to your liver,” the NHS notes.

Alcohol-related liver disease is very common in the UK, with the number of sufferers increasing over the last few decades.
