Liver Conditions


Your liver is the second largest organ in your body and it plays a critical role in your digestive system, helping you digest food, absorb nutrients and filter toxins from your blood. The term “liver disease” applies to the more than 100 diseases and disorders that impair the liver’s ability to function properly or cause it to stop functioning. Liver disease can occur in people of all ages and ethnicities and affects approximately 1 in 10 people in the United States.
