Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis

When any tissue in the body is extensively destroyed, the affected area is filled with fibres which 'knit' the adjoining areas together. This fibrous area is then called ‘scar tissue’. When it happens in the liver it is called cirrhosis. Most people who drink too much alcohol will have cirrhosis. Infections, certain medicines, obesity, heart diseases, etc. can also result in the same condition. Sufferers lose weight, vomit, bleed and bruise easily, their skin becomes yellow or they can become confused, forgetful, lose consciousness and may even die.
