[2015] Brooke Dooley (Class of 2017): Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis is the late stage of scarring of the liver(hepatic fibrosis), which is caused by all of the following: hemochromatosis(Iron build up) cystic fibrosis, wilsons diease(copper), chronic alcohol abuse, hepatitis B or C, and fat build up in the liver. Signs and symptoms dont normally start occuring until severe damage has already been done to the liver. they include: Fatigue, itchy skin, bleeding and bruising easily, nausea, and loss of appetite. Cirrhosis can not be curred, and damge to the liver can't be undone, but if it is caught early enough further damage can be limited. As Cirrhosis progresses, the liver tissue becomes more scarred and damaged making it difficult for the liver to function properly. This can make Cirrhosis exteremly life threating.
