Studies have shown that 60%-80% of liver cirrhosis is caused by viral hepatitis, the most common of which are hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, the continuous attack of these diseases can cause the patient’s liver cells to continue to be damaged, and then develop the problem of liver cirrhosis.
In addition, if the patient has the habit of drinking for a long time, then suffering from There is also an increased risk of cirrhosis. Because alcohol can cause stimulation to liver cells, resulting in lesion or even necrosis of liver cells, resulting in liver cirrhosis in patients.

In addition, the level of tyrosinase in the patient’s skin also increases, making tyrosine It gradually converts to melanin and causes melanosis problems, eventually manifesting on the face.
As the disease progresses, the patient’s adrenal glands will also be affected, resulting in a continuous decline in adrenal cortex function and increased melanocytes. strong>Different degrees of pigmentation also occur in the lips and oral mucosa.
< p>Due to the decline of liver function, the normal production and excretion of bile will be affected, so that the body’s digestion of fatty substances will be obstructed, so patients will have obvious symptoms Loss of appetite;

At the same time, some patients may also have problems such as gastric varicose veins, portal hypertension, which can lead to Gastrointestinal bleeding problem.
If the patient eats hard food or suffers from external stimuli, then it is likely to suddenly appear hematemesis, hemorrhagic shock, In severe cases it can even be life-threatening.
The above are several main manifestations of this disease. It can be seen that liver cirrhosis is very< strong>Dangerous disease, the occurrence of this disease often indicates that the patient’s liver disease has developed to a relatively severe stage.
Therefore, once the above problems occur, it is necessary to go to the hospital immediately for examination and treatment, and regular physical examination, so as to better Take a observation of the recovery.
In addition, since the occurrence of liver cirrhosis is related to long-term drinking, patients should quit alcohol immediately after the onset of the disease, and try to eat as much as possible easy-to-digest foods. food, thereby promoting recovery from disease.
