Do you know that uncontrolled consumptions of medicines and alcohol play an adverse role in damaging your liver? Our liver is the largest and one of the most important organs in the body. Whatever food we eat, liver helps to digest that and also wipes out all toxins from that. There are various factors that adversely affect and cause damage such as your lifestyle, eating patterns, drinking habits, medication etc. When your liver is not healthy, it sends many signals so that you can understand the warning signs of its damage.Ignoring these signs leads to deadly and chronic diseases such as fatty liver, hepatitis C, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, cirrhosis and many more. So it is important to know and understand the signs of the unhealthy liver.

Here we are enlisting 9 early signs of the unhealthy liver that you should not ignore.

1. Jaundice- Jaundice is one of the most common signs of the unhealthy liver resulting in yellowish discolorations of the skin. Jaundice can be caused by other diseases such as malaria, gallstone, hepatitis but mainly attacks on the liver. Jaundice occurs when the level of bilirubin increases in the blood.
