Painkiller - the leading cause of acute liver failure

Painkiller - the leading cause of acute liver failure
A:

Recent research by the University of Edinburgh have gained new insight into how common painkiller paracetamol causes liver damage. The research studied the impact of paracetamol on liver cells in human and mouse tissue.

 

Toxicity liver damage is currently the leading cause of acute liver failure in the Western world. Long term or excessive use of paracetamol can damage the liver by harming vital structural connections between cells. One of the common result of toxicity liver damage is: Acute liver failure, others includes: high ALT level, liver inflammation, liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, or even liver cancer. This type of liver damage can be difficult to treat and may prove fatal.

 

Dr Leonard Nelson, of the University of Edinburgh's Hepatology Laboratory and Institute for Bioengineering, who co-lead the study, said: 

 

"Paracetamol is the world's preferred pain remedy - it is cheap, and considered safe and effective at therapeutic dose. However, drug-induced liver damage remains an important clinical problem and a challenge for developing safer drugs. Our findings reinforce the need for vigilance in paracetamol use, and could help discover how harm caused by its adverse use might be prevented.”

 

Prevent Liver Damage by Drugs

All drugs will causes different levels of toxic to the human body, we often judge the toxic by its obvious side effects, but damage to the liver is hard to notice until later stage, making toxicity liver disease hard to treat, and protection means is becoming more and more important.

 

Protection for liver cells is an effective measure to prevent toxicity liver damage, and both YHK Therapy and DTS can offer protection to liver cells. A study on the protective effect of DTS against paracetamol-induced liver damage found that DTS can effectively prevent the decline of liver tissue ATPase and protein thiol assay, thereby preventing the damage on the liver cell. This protective effect is valuable for people who uses long term medication, to prevent liver damages.

 

A Caution Reminder

Although the Paracetamol research has focus only on one single drug, but it is not the only drug the could damage to the liver and we should see the research as a caution reminder. We must look beyond the effects of drugs, and should fully understand the possible side effects before use.

Recently we have received quite a few enquiries about YHK’s effect on managing ALT level. Many are curious about YHK’s mechanism of normalising high ALT level as quickly as in 10 days. Some wonder if such fast result is safe, while some have doubts on how long the effective results can last. Therefore, we think it is a great opportunity to discuss how YHK helps with the problem of high ALT level.   What causes high ALT? In order

Patients with liver diseases often experience different symptoms such as chronic fatigue, loss of appetite, itchy skin, and sleeping disturbances etc. In the western way of treatment, each problem or symptom is tackled individually, leading patients to take multiple medications which cause burden to the body with side effects. However, from the eastern medical point of view, every organ in the body is interconnected. Therefore when tackling various symptoms experienced by liver dise

The liver carries out essential functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making new blood and other vital nutrients. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The loss of liver cells turns into scar tissue which prevents the liver working normally, reducing or in some cases, completely losing liver function. Cirrhosis is a long-term chronic liver damage; it is often caused by chronic live

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is a type of enzyme found in liver cells. When the liver cells are functioning normally, the ALT enzymes should be contained within the liver cells.    You can imagine each liver cells as a balloon, and the ALT enzymes are the air inside the balloon. When the balloon is damaged, the air will be released. And when the liver cells is damaged, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, therefore we are able to find out the l

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.   What does high ALT indicate? ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up. Therefore, by measuring the

Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
