Liver Failure Signs And Symptoms

Bleeding

Liver failure can significantly increase the risks of bruising and bleeding. This organ is responsible for blood clotting factors, and if it becomes damaged, you may not be able to heal as fast as required. Internal bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract occurs during the final stage of hepatic failure. External bleeding like frequent bruising and nosebleeds are also common. Patients suffer excess bleeding due to the abnormally slow rate of blood clotting and this may lead to further complications.

Some of these symptoms occur early when the condition starts, while others occur at the end-stage. End-stage symptoms require immediate medical attention because it shows that the organ may become damaged if left untreated. Fluid build-up in the legs, nausea, intense itching, bleeding, abdominal pain, confusion, and memory loss are some of the common symptoms that occur at the final stage.
