Your liver can become damaged through alcohol abuse, drug abuse and diet as well as viral infections such as hepatitis. Fortunately, in the early stages of lifestyle-induced liver damage your liver can regenerate and repair itself. However, once damage becomes extensive and fibrosis and cirrhosis occurs, then liver disease can become irreversable.
Early detection of liver disease gives you the opportunity to make the necessary changes to your lifestyle before damage becomes permanent.
Kidney disease is usually caused by conditions which put a strain on the kidneys such as high blood pressure, raised cholesterol, diabetes, infections, urinary blockages and the use of some medications. Kidney disease can range from mild to severe. Early stage kidney disease can be treated through lifestyle changes, but regular monitoring is required to manage a kidney condition.
