Cirrhosis symptoms in Children
Posted in 2013

Liver cirrhosis symptoms itself often causes no symptoms early in the disease process. Symptoms start when there is portal hypertension and/or the liver begins to fail, as scar tissue replaces healthy cells. Symptom severity may depend on the extent of liver damage.
A person in the early stages of cirrhosis may feel fatigued and weak. Sometimes he or she will experience abdominal swelling that feels tender or painful. Family may notice the person has a poor appetite or is losing weight.
As the disease progresses, bile flow is blocked or stopped, and jaundice (yellow skin or eyes) appears. The same bile pigment, bilirubin, which is responsible for the yellow skin tones of jaundice can turn urine dark. Bleeding and bruising can occur more easily and take longer to heal. Other later symptoms, some due to complications, include:
  • Reddened palms
  • Loss of body hair
  • Enlarged liver
  • Enlarged spleen
  • Appearance of thin, purplish-red, spidery looking blood vessels on the skin, especially around the navel
  • Water retention and swelling in the legs and abdomen
  • Vomiting blood
  • Itching
  • Abdominal infections
  • Forgetfulness or confusion
  • Tremors
  • Inability to fully process drugs
  • Enlarged, twisted, thin-walled blood vessels called varices in the esophagus and/or stomach that can rupture and lead to life-threatening bleeding
  • Liver cancer

My advise
1...  If mother during pregnancy eat unhealthy food, drinks alcohol......... without limit the liver of the child damages fully, if  the mother is partially tales the above the the child's liver will be damaged partially before birth and remaining will be damaged after birth due to continuous eating of unhealthy food.
2....The mother should follow healthy habits to protect her child from Cirrhosis
3...  Drink sufficient water
