Liver Disease: Types & Causes

Liver disease encompasses various types, and each has distinct causes and implications. Hepatitis, for instance, refers to inflammation of the liver and can be caused by viral infections like hepatitis A, B, or C. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) develops when excess fat accumulates in the liver due to factors like obesity, insulin resistance, or high cholesterol levels.

Alcoholic liver disease results from excessive alcohol consumption, leading to liver damage and scarring. Cirrhosis, a severe form of liver disease, occurs when scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue, often from chronic hepatitis or alcohol abuse.

Autoimmune hepatitis arises when the immune system mistakenly attacks the liver. Understanding these different types and causes is crucial for accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and effective management of liver disease.
