Is it possible to reverse liver damage? Can liver damage reverse?
Hello, Can Liver diseases like Cirrhosis be reversed? Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by continuous, long-term liver damage. Scar tissue replaces healthy tissue in the liver and prevents the liver from working properly. The damage caused by cirrhosis can't be reversed and can eventually become so extensive that your liver stops functioning. In many cases, the liver fails. However, it usually takes years for the condition to reach this stage. Can this condition be reversed early? Is it possible to reverse liver damage?
@orlando The liver, however, is able to replace damaged tissue with new cells. If up to 50 to 60 percent of the liver cells may be killed within three to four days in an extreme case like a Tylenol overdose, the liver will repair completely after 30 days if no complications arise. But it is difficult to reverse conditions like cirrhosis. Once scar tissue has developed it is very difficult to reverse that process. Severe scarring of the liver is a condition known as cirrhosis. The development of cirrhosis indicates late-stage liver disease and is usually followed by the onset of complications.
