    The signs and symptoms of liver disease may include weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal swelling, pain in the abdomen, yellowing of eyes or skin (jaundice), dark urine, light-colored stool, itching, and diarrhea.
    The factors which can cause an increased risk for liver disease include taking medications that can damage the liver, heavy intake of alcohol, viral hepatitis, or possible chances for exposure to hepatitis viruses, having a family history of liver disease, obesity, especially if a person has diabetes or high blood pressure.
    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The functions of the liver include filtering and breaking down harmful substances from the blood which are then removed from the body in urine and stools, production of bile that helps to digest foods like fat; storing glycogen which can be used for energy, converting nutrients from the food into essential blood components, regulating clotting of blood, maintaining hormone balances, producing factors that help the immune system to fight infection, and removing bacteria from the blood.
    Certain liver conditions such as hemochromatosis (deposition of iron salts in the tissues), alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, and Wilson disease might be inherited from the family and can cause damage to the liver. Early detection of these diseases can help to start the treatment at the earliest.
