The liver is essential for detoxifying the body, metabolizing drugs, absorbing nutrients and much, much more. If we leave this vital organ unchecked, it could eventually lead to total failure. Here are eleven signs that could spell trouble for your liver, especially if left unchecked.

1. Jaundice


A condition known as jaundice occurs when waste builds up in our bodies and bile pigment flows into our bloodstream. This is more of a problem with infants, but it can also occur in adults. This should be taken as a serious warning that something is up with your liver.

2. Bloated ankles

When there’s a problem with the liver, heart or kidney, gravity causes fluid to build up in the lower extremities of the body, like the feet.

3. Appetite changes

Although appetite changes can stem from a number of underlying reasons, it can also be from your liver. If your liver is struggling, you’ll lose your appetite. Or, if you’re eating a normal amount but your weight is noticeably decreasing, you should still consult with a physician.

4. Diarrhea

This is a very common issue related to liver problems. Realistically, whenever you have loose bowel movements, they should not be ignored.

5. Strange bruises

Proteins needed for blood clots are produced in the liver. So, when the liver is in trouble, protein levels decrease, making bruising and bleeding more frequent.

6. Intense exhaustion

If you feel drained every day at an abnormal rate, you could be dealing with liver problems. As waste builds in the liver, it leads to lower oxygen levels, leaving us feeling tired all the time.

7. Dark urine

One great way to check liver health is by looking at your urine before flushing. If your urine is dark and stools are lighter than normal, you should seek medical attention. Dark urine may exist for a variety of reasons, but liver damage could potentially be one.

8. Right shoulder pain

As you might not be expecting, pain in your right shoulder can be from liver problems. This is usually the case when cancer is in the liver and a tumor is growing. When the tumor increases in mass, it creates immense pressure on surrounding nerves. If the pain is related to your liver, you might also get hiccups easily by putting pressure on your stomach.

9. Belly pain

If the pain stems from only your right ribs, you should consider a consultation with your doctor. This pain could be coming from your liver.

10. Throwing up regularly

It becomes far more difficult for our bodies to process foods and liquids when our livers fail. This will create unbelievable stress for our digestive systems. Along with the pain, it will make your stomach feel sick and swollen. Eventually, you will be throwing up on a daily basis.

11. Changing personality

When our livers fail, more toxins build up in our bloodstream, thus flowing to our brain. This makes it very difficult to concentrate and we have issues remembering things. There could also be rapid changes in sleeping habits.

About Alan Pendlebury


  1. This has been a very interesting and informative article!


  3. Last year I was told that I have two hemangiomas on my liver. One large one on the right and a smaller one on the left. Apparently they’ve been there for a while and the doctor I had never told me about them! anyway, is there something that can be done (other than surgery) to reduce the size. I was also told that my liver is a bit large for my body (as are my heart and one kidney). I am turning 60 soon and I am starting to be concerned with all of the issues going on with my inside.

  4. I have had elevated liver enzymes on and off for years , I take natural supplements to help support and detox my liver. What foods help detox the liver? Is it bad for the liver to take Tylenol 1000 mg daily. It is the only thing I can take for arthritis.

  5. This was good. I did not know that the liver could cause so many problems in your body. I am going to check out mine. Thank you.

  6. I have many of these signs and the Dr does suspect the liver but they have been running tests since September and they still haven’t come to a conclusion.

  7. Dear Sir
    Good day
    Found good with example
