Many times the symptoms very mild and it’s hard for someone to recognize, but it is important for you to be aware of what to look out for. While NONE of the items we list are DEFINITIVE proof of liver problems, if you notice one or more of these symptoms becoming a regular occurrence, it’s important to see your doctor. Identifying and treating liver problems can help keep your condition under control and stave off further damage to the body. If you ignore the symptoms and allow liver problems to progress, your condition will continue to worsen and the potential for damage to the rest of the body increases.

Here are some tell-tale signs that should alert you to issues with your liver:

Skin or eyes are turning yellow (Hyperbilirubinemia)
This is actually a buildup of bilirubin (bile) in the skin and eyes.
Your urine is dark
This is actually a buildup of bilirubin (bile) in the urine and can be a symptom of cholestasis (a stoppage of bile flow causing a backup)
The palms of your hands are turning red for no reason
This is a symptom of Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
It is more difficult to stop the bleeding
This is due to low platelets in your blood. Platelets are one of the main components in the chemistry of the blood that causes blood to clot.

Below are some not-so obvious symptoms that could be the result of a under-performing or failing liver.

You have gained or lost a significant amount of weight.
Your skin is itchy, you bruise easily or you have more body pains (for no good reason)
You’re tired often and your sleep pattern has changed
