Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The liver functions as a filtering system of the intestines. The blood that leaves the stomach first needs to pass through the liver before it exits from the intestines.
  • The liver also secretes bile, a fluid that is required to break down fats during the digestion process. Fatty liver is an abnormal condition of the liver where there is excess fatty infiltration in the liver or in simpler words, excess accumulation of fats in the liver cells. This causes the liver to expand and adds more weight to the organ.
