Cirrhosis represents an advanced stage of liver scarring, denoting severe damage to the liver. This condition can result from various liver diseases and underlying factors, such as hepatitis or chronic alcohol abuse.
Whenever the liver faces injury, be it from excessive alcohol consumption or other sources like infections, it initiates a self-repair process that leads to the formation of scar tissue. With the progression of cirrhosis, this scar tissue accumulates, impairing the liver's ability to function effectively. In its advanced stages, cirrhosis becomes life-threatening.
The liver damage associated with cirrhosis is typically irreversible. However, if cirrhosis is diagnosed in its early stages, and the root cause is effectively treated, further damage can often be minimized, and in rare instances, partial reversal may be achievable.
