The liver, which is located in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen and partially protected by the ribs, is the largest solid organ in the human body. The liver is critical for a number of bodily functions. Ergo, it is important to know the signs of liver damage and to take care of the liver.


There are over 100 different types of liver disease and each has different manifestations. Some of these disease are hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, and cirrhosis of the liver and fatty liver disease.  People usually mistake these symptoms for something else since they are not specific. Here is a list of the most common early signs.
  1. Upset Stomach
Vomiting and nausea are common symptoms, but they can mimic other diseases like food poisoning, migraines, motion sickness, vertigo, vomiting, depression and early pregnancy. Moreover, they can mimic kidney issues as well. People who have liver damage are likely to suffer from persistent nausea, since the liver’s ability to eliminate toxins had reduced.
The nausea can also be due to the constant changes in digestion and metabolism. In case you have these symptoms, consult a doctor.
  1. Overall Weakness and Fatigue
Feeling weak and tired is one of the obvious and early signs of damaged liver. If the liver is damaged, out body works harder, so it needs more rest. This happens because of the toxins in the blood that cannot be eliminated by the liver. In case the symptoms linger, visit your doctor immediately.
  1. Loss of Appetite
Loss of appetite happens as a result of not enough bile, which aids with the fat digestion. If the food is not properly digested, it lead to loss of appetite and serious loss of weight.
  1. Digestion Problems
The liver is vital for this process since it produces bile. If the liver is damaged, there can be an increase in diarrhea and indigestion. Moreover, if there is lack of bile, a person may also experience fatty food intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, gallstones, alcohol intolerance, constipation and abdominal bloating.
  1. Changes in the Color of the Urine
Changes in the color of the urine might indicate damaged liver. The increased levels of bilirubin in the blood cause the urine to look orange, amber or brown. The levels of bilirubin are increased since the liver is unable to eliminate it, and it is eliminated through the kidneys.
  1. Changes in the Color of the Stool
Due to lack of bile, the color of the stool can change. Instead of its normal brown color, it can be clay colored, pale yellow, or gray. If this is not persistent, it is not dangerous. However, if it happens constantly, seeking medical attention is necessary.
  1. Jaundice
Jaundice is a condition in which the color of the eyes, fingertips, tongue and skin becomes yellow. It is formed when the levels of bilirubin in the bloodstream increase. Jaundice can also be an indication of issues with the gallbladder or pancreas, so consulting a doctor is highly recommended.
  1. Abdominal Changes
Cramping or pain in the lower part of your abdomen, or feeling particularly bloated can be an indication of damaged liver. One of the early symptoms of liver damage is ascites, which is fluid accumulation in the abdominal cavity.
Furthermore, portal hypertension, which is high blood pressure in the veins and arteries of the abdomen is a consequence of liver disease.
  1. Fluid Retention
Fluid retention is one of the early warning signs, particularly in the feet and ankles. Fluid retention can be caused by lymphatic disease, heart failure, hormonal imbalance, and kidney problems as well.
  1. Increased Skin Itching
In case of liver deficiency, the skin is more sensitive than usual and often flakes and itches, and it is also hypersensitive to touch. There could also be more bruises and increased veins visibility. Keeping the skin moist is helpful, but the problem will not go away till the liver issue is solved.
  1. Abdominal Pain
This pain is normal for damaged liver.
  1. Constipation, Diarrhea and Intestinal Bleeding
The liver is responsible for making clotting factors and sans them, there is bleeding of the intestines related with constipation and diarrhea.
This is not the full list of early signs of damaged liver. For instance, damaged liver can also lead to hormonal imbalance in men and as a consequence they develop breasts and may suffer from a loss of libido. Nevertheless, consult with your doctor of any changes you are experiencing.

The Cancer Dies When You Eat These Five Foods, It’s Time To Start Eating Them

Cancer is a malevolent disease that has struck terror on millions of people around the globe. However, many physicians and doctors claim it is the cancer drugs that is killing people, not cancer.

Chemotherapy is the most commonly used drug in the combat against cancer. It is extremely poisonous and the side effects are often the worst part of fighting cancer. Many people believe chemotherapy to just be a simple method of business. In fact, cancer is a huge business in America and lots of people are getting rich from it. it’s a $200 billion a year business. Yet 98 percent of conventional cancer treatments not only fail miserably, but are also almost guaranteed to make cancer patients sicker. That is exactly why you should resort to natural cures.
The earth has given us tons of different ingredients to beat even the worst of diseases – cancer included. With over 100 different types of cancer, it can become difficult to treat. However, there are many natural ingredients that have been clinically proven to eliminate cancer cells. For example, THC, the leading chemical in cannabis, can induce apoptosis in a cancer cell, the process in which a cell kills itself. More amazingly, it does this without harming any healthy cells! That’s not the only natural remedy that can cure cancer either. In fact, here are 5 foods that can kill cancer just by eating them!

Blueberries and Raspberries

Blueberries and raspberries contain powerful phytochemicals called anthocyanins which is a powerful disease fighting ability. Blueberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K, manganese and a good source of dietary fiber. Blueberries are among the fruits highest in antioxidant power, largely due to their many phytochemicals. The phytochemicals are known to have a decreasing effect on oxidative stress and angiogenesis.

Coffee and Green Tea

EGCG and other green tea antioxidants have been found to stop cancer cells from growing, kill cancer cells, and prevent the formation and growth of new blood vessels in tumors.


Like blueberries, tomatoes have an abundance of phytochemicals. The tomato’s red hue comes chiefly from a phytochemical called lycopene. Tomatoes have attracted particular attention from prostate cancer researchers because lycopene and its related compounds tend to concentrate in tissues of the prostate.

Dark Chocolate

Yes, even chocolate can cure cancer. In 2005, researchers at Georgetown University found that a compound called pentameric procyanidin was able to deactivate certain proteins in the body, causing them to stop building new tumor cells. Pentameric procyanidin is naturally found in chocolate.


The lead ingredient in turmeric is known as curcumin, and it has powerful anticancer effects too. Studies have shown that curcumin helps prevent several forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach, liver, and colon because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It stops the development of cancer by interfering with the cellular signaling aspects of the chronic disease.

Finger-stick blood test may not help type 2 diabetes treatment: Study

New research has revealed that checking blood sugar with a finger-stick may not help type 2 diabetes patients who do not use insulin.
Type 2 diabetes is an epidemic afflicting one in 11 people in the US and for those treated with insulin, checking blood sugar with a finger-stick at home is an accepted practice for monitoring the effects of insulin therapy.
However, researchers from UNC School of Medicine found that the majority of type 2 diabetes patients are not treated with insulin.
“Our study results have the potential to transform current clinical practice for patients and their providers by placing a spotlight on the perennial question, ‘to test or not to test’,” said Katrina Donahue, Professor at UNC School of Medicine.
Most of the 25 million people with type 2 diabetes in the US today do not take insulin but control their blood sugar with exercise, diet, and sometimes medications such as metformin.
Currently, 75 per cent of these patients also perform regular blood glucose testing at home, generally at the recommendation of a provider, despite an on-going debate about its effectiveness in controlling diabetes or improving how patients feel.
“Of course, patients and providers have to consider each unique situation as they determine whether home blood glucose monitoring is appropriate,” Donahue said.
“But the study’s null results suggest that self-monitoring of blood glucose in non-insulin treated type 2 diabetes has limited utility. For majority, the costs may outweigh the benefits,” she added.
The study that involved 450 patients suggested that patients living with diabetes should discuss the need for blood sugar monitoring with their health care providers.
“If together a patient and their provider decide that blood sugar monitoring is not necessary, patients could be spared hundreds of finger sticks and save hundreds of dollars every year, at least until insulin treatment is required,” the study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine noted.
Though proponents of blood glucose testing argue that daily testing promotes better awareness of glucose levels leading to improvements in diet and lifestyle, the research asserts that daily testing imposes not only a financial cost but can also take a mental toll, increasing the rate of depression or anxiety in some patients.

Simple Things Can Do for Better Health

Vitamin D is incredibly important for your health, and many people are deficient. Without proper vitamin D levels, it can be difficult to lose weight, your immune system may suffer, and even your reproductive system may experience issues. Your doctor can test your vitamin D levels in their office if you have any of the symptoms. These may include things like unexplained tiredness or weakness, a depressed mood, or high blood pressure. Your doctor might recommend a high dose daily vitamin to get your levels up if you’re deficient, but sometimes just a little sunshine each day can do the trick.
Drink up!

You’ve probably heard that you should drink eight glasses of water each and every day, but do you know why? Water is the single most important thing you put in your body. It keeps your digestive system working properly, stabilizes your mood, prevents headaches due to dehydration, and boosts your immune system. To keep yourself on track each day, try setting a reminder on your phone to drink water every hour or so. Some smartphones even have special apps you can download for free.
Smile at strangers
Research shows that smiling actually makes people happier. If you take time to smile at a stranger, experts say you may improve their mood as well as your own. Some people even say that laughing when you’re sad can trigger a better mood. Next time you’re down, try smiling or laughing for a while. You may feel silly at first, but the benefits are well worth it.
It’s so important for everyone to get enough rest each night, but women’s bodies undergo even more stress than men’s. Getting at least seven to nine hours of sleep each night is crucial for your well-being. Without proper rest, your brain may be foggy and your immune system may be compromised. Chronic sleep deprivation may even lead to mental disorders or serious illness. Next time you’re tempted to stay up for the late night talk shows, turn the TV off and opt for more rest instead.
You may think that stress is just an everyday part of life, but it’s actually very bad for your health. Chronic stress can affect your metabolism, your mental health, and your libido. If that’s not enough to convince you, it can actually make you age more quickly, too. If you suffer from chronic anxiety, talk to your doctor about prescription medication. Otherwise, when something stressful occurs, take a moment to collect your thoughts. You can try meditating or focusing on your breaths. Close your eyes, and breathe in for five seconds then out for five seconds until your breath slows and your pulse returns to a normal rate.
Spend time with friends
Loneliness can cause a host of problems, including depression and other mental issues. No matter how much time you’re spending with coworkers and family, make sure you spend some time with your friends, too. A girls’ night out can do wonders for your mood and emotional well-being.
