Fatty liver disease: Have you noticed thinning hair? Signs of an advanced liver problem

Liver disease is an umbrella term that relates to any condition that affects your liver and according to the British Liver Trust, the disease is the biggest cause of death in 35- to 49-year-olds. Suffering with thinning hair or hair loss could indicate advanced liver disease.

The liver is responsible for the uptake of fat-soluble vitamins, the detoxification of oestrogen and the regulation of blood sugar.

All of which are important for normal follicle hair cycling.

By improving your health, this will impact your liver and in turn could impact your hair.

Cirrhosis is the result of long-term, continuous damage to the liver and may be due to many different causes, said the British Liver Trust.

The health site continued: “The damage leads to scarring, known as fibrosis.

“Irregular bumps (nodules) replace the smooth liver tissue and the liver becomes harder.

“Together, the scarring and the nodules are called cirrhosis.

“If you have or are worried about any of these symptoms discuss them with your doctor.”
