Acute Liver Failure

Acute liver failure is a condition where there is a loss of liver function in a few days or weeks without any preexisting liver disease. It is often caused due to hepatitis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's disease, and Acetaminophen intake. The common symptoms are nausea, fatigue, loss of liver function, loss of appetite, and diarrhea. The early stages of liver failure are managed by taking proper treatment and lifestyle management. Later stages of liver disease are irreversible and require a liver transplant.
