What Is Alcohol withdrawal

Alcohol withdrawal is generally known as Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS). It is characterized by some typical symptoms when a heavy and regular drinker suddenly reduces or stops the alcohol consumption.

What Is Acidity

Acidity is a set of symptoms caused due to excess production of acid by gastric glands of the stomach. The stomach usually secretes hydrochloric acid that is required for breakdown and digestion of food eaten by us. Excess production of hydrochloric acid causes acidity.

What Is Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Diabetes mellitus (type 2) is characterized by high blood sugar, relative lack of insulin and insulin resistance. It is a long term metabolic disorder.

Long term complications of diabetes are diabetic retinopathy, resulting in blindness, heart disease, strokes, kidney failure, poor flow of blood in limbs requiring amputation.

What Is High Cholesterol

Dyslipidaemia or high cholesterol indicate the imbalance of fats (or lipids) in one’s blood system.

High cholesterol or dyslipidaemia, means that there is an imbalance of fats (or lipids), circulating in one’s blood stream. The body uses cholesterol (the fatty substance) to metabolize food and also make hormones.

The following three different measurements are used to determine one’s overall lipid health:

1.    Low-Density Lipoprotein (bad cholesterol, LDL): The higher LDL, the more is the risk of cardiovascular disease. LDL obstructs the proper blood flow into the heart and other organs by building up plaque in arteries.

2.     High-Density Lipoprotein (Good cholesterol, HDL): HDL brings back the cholesterol to the liver from other parts of the body, thus removing the harmful cholesterols from your body. The higher the HDL, the better it is for the heart.

3.   Triglycerides – Also referred to as fat in the blood. This type of fat is usually found in eatable animal fats and vegetable oils. High levels of Triglycerides signify the increased risk of cardiovascular disease as it also contributes to building up of a plaque in one’s arteries

What Is Liver cirrhosis

When the healthy liver cells are exposed to the continuous damage over an extended duration of time, it causes healthy tissues to get replaced by unhealthy, scarred tissues. This condition is commonly known as liver cirrhosis.

The liver becomes hard, and lumpy due to the scar tissues. After this condition, the liver starts failing. Because of the scar tissues, it gets difficult for the blood to pass through the large vein, which connects to the liver. This causes blood to back up in the large vein or the portal vein, which may lead to the blood to get in the spleen. Hence, damaging the function of the spleen as well.

Liver transplant is the only solution in the condition of liver cirrhosis. But, it can be controlled by controlling the factors causing liver cirrhosis.

  • Stress
  • Alcoholism
  • Sedentary life style

  • Infections caused due to Hepatitis B and C
  • Diseases caused due to fatty liver.
  • Toxic metals.
  • Diseases caused due to genetics.

Out of the above-mentioned causes hepatitis B and considered the major cause of liver cirrhosis.  These causes are mentioned below in detail.

  • Too much of alcohol intake: Liver breaks down toxins in addition to alcohol.

One who is drinking regularly for over past 10 years is more likely to develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Generally, there are three stages of liver diseases. These liver disease stages are caused by alcohol consumption. These are as follows:
  • Fatty liver: In this stage fat is developed on the liver.
  • Alcoholic hepatitis: About 35% of the regular alcohol consumers establish alcoholic hepatitis. In this condition, liver cells tend to swell.

Hepatitis C is the major factor of liver cirrhosis in North America, Western Europe, and various other areas of the world. Liver Cirrhosis may be caused by hepatitis D and B as well.
  • Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis starts with the deposition of a high amount of fat in the liver, in the early stage. This deposited fat may cause scarring and inflammation of tissues, which results in liver cirrhosis eventually. People with high blood pressure, high blood-lipid, high blood sugar level, obesity are more prone to NASH
  • Autoimmune hepatitis: An immune system of a person may attack the organs like liver that are in healthy conditions.This may lead to eventual development of liver cirrhosis.
  • Certain genetic conditions.
  • Hemochromatosis – Iron may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Wilson's disease - copper may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Blockage in the bile-ducts: Certain diseases and conditions like cancer of the pancreas, cancer of bile duct may block the bile-duct, which increases the risk of liver cirrhosis.
  • Budd-Chiari syndrome: The blood vessels, which carry the blood from liver also known as hepatic veins develop a blood clot or thrombosis. This may lead to the enlargement of the liver and develops the collateral vessels.

A few other conditions and diseases, which may cause liver cirrhosis are as follows:

  • Cystic fibrosis.
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis: In this disease, bile duct tends to harden and scarred.
  • Galactosemia: It is an inability of a body to process the sugar present in the milk.
  • Schistosomiasis:  A parasite prevalently found in certain developing countries.

  • Infections caused due to Hepatitis B and C
  • Diseases caused due to fatty liver.
  • Toxic metals.
  • Diseases caused due to genetics.

Out of the above-mentioned causes hepatitis B and considered the major cause of liver cirrhosis.  These causes are mentioned below in detail.

  • Too much of alcohol intake: Liver breaks down toxins in addition to alcohol. And, when the quantity is too large, the liver has to over work resulting in the gradual damage of the liver cells.Long-term, heavy, and regular drinkers are at a higher risk of developing liver cirrhosis if compared to non-alcohol consumers. One who is drinking regularly for over past 10 years is more likely to develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Generally, there are three stages of liver diseases. These liver disease stages are caused by alcohol consumption. These are as follows:
  • Fatty liver: In this stage fat is developed on the liver.
  • Alcoholic hepatitis: About 35% of the regular alcohol consumers establish alcoholic hepatitis. In this condition, liver cells tend to swell.
  • Liver cirrhosis: Around 10% of regular and heavy drinkers gradually develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Hepatitis:  Hepatitis c is a blood borne disease in which liver can get damaged slowly leading to liver cirrhosis. Hepatitis C is the major factor of liver cirrhosis in North America, Western Europe, and various other areas of the world. Liver Cirrhosis may be caused by hepatitis D and B as well.
  • Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis starts with the deposition of a high amount of fat in the liver, in the early stage. This deposited fat may cause scarring and inflammation of tissues, which results in liver cirrhosis eventually. People with high blood pressure, high blood-lipid, high blood sugar level, obesity are more prone to NASH
  • Autoimmune hepatitis: An immune system of a person may attack the organs like liver that are in healthy conditions.This may lead to eventual development of liver cirrhosis.
  • Certain genetic conditions.
  • Hemochromatosis – Iron may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Wilson's disease - copper may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Blockage in the bile-ducts: Certain diseases and conditions like cancer of the pancreas, cancer of bile duct may block the bile-duct, which increases the risk of liver cirrhosis.
  • Budd-Chiari syndrome: The blood vessels, which carry the blood from liver also known as hepatic veins develop a blood clot or thrombosis. This may lead to the enlargement of the liver and develops the collateral vessels.

A few other conditions and diseases, which may cause liver cirrhosis are as follows:

  • Cystic fibrosis.
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis: In this disease, bile duct tends to harden and scarred.
  • Galactosemia: It is an inability of a body to process the sugar present in the milk.
  • Schistosomiasis:  A parasite prevalently found in certain developing countries.
