Cirrhosis with Liver Failure

Your liver is the only organ in your body that has the ability to regenerate itself. But when your liver is subjected to repeated scarring through factors like hepatitis, overdrinking, abnormal accumulation of fat, it can lead to cirrhosis. This is an irreversible condition but if it is diagnosed early, further damage can be minimized. Chronic liver failure is the last stage of cirrhosis.
