Diseases of Liver & Gall Bladder
HEPATITIS & BILIOUS LIVER
Liver is the largest gland in the body. The liver is enlarged in case of inflammation and easily may be felt on right hypochondriac region. Patient feels pain incase of inflammation and feels difficultly in breathing. Tongue becomes yellow patient complains of nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever
CHOLECYSTITIS & GALL BLADDER STONE
Due to inflammation in gall bladder, common bile duct, which arises from it, also becomes inflamed and narrow which leads incomplete secretion of bile towards duodenum. Instead of reaching to duodenum bile begins to reabsorb in liver and later on in blood circulation. Due to mixing of bile pigment in the blood, skin and sclera of the eyes become yellow and urine also becomes dark yellow and stool becomes of light colour. In case of Gall bladder stone, fragment of stone reaches to bile duct and obstructs it. Patient feels severe pain at the site of Gall Bladder (right hypochondriac region), which reflectly reaches to back and abdomen.
