Comprehensive Care for Liver Cirrhosis at Medica

The liver is a big organ in the belly that filters blood and conducts many other critical bodily activities. It’s also referred to as a gland because it produces substances that the body needs. The liver can be damaged by certain diseases and lifestyles, but there are several strategies to safeguard this crucial organ. Cirrhosis is a late-stage liver condition in which good liver tissue is replaced by scar tissue, causing permanent damage to the liver. Scar tissue obstructs your liver’s ability to function normally.
