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.

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

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

You probably have already heard about the new antiviral hep C drug, which is effective but insanely expensive. It claims to have around 90% success rate, that’s why so many hepatitis C patients are dying for it even though it’s extremely costly. But apart from its expensive price tag, there is a bigger issue behind this new drug that not many people know about. Scientists and researchers have found an increased risk of extreme liver cancer related to this new drug after successful

Hepatitis C is a wide spread and deadly disease affecting an estimated of 3.5 million Americans.   Treatment for hepatitis C has evolved over the years, going from highly toxic drugs involving injections with horrible side effects, to medications with minimal side effects. Success rate of treatment options has also improved greatly Although the high price tag of the new DAA treatment is controversial, it has undoubtedly helped to cure many hepatitis C patients.
