How does the Liver work?
Liver Functions- The liver is the largest and one of the most complex organs in the body. It has many functions,some of the most important include:
- As a biochemical factory, it processes nutrients absorbed from the gut, and makes them available for use by other parts of the body
- The production of bile and its excretion into the intestine is important for absorption of fats and certain vitamins
- The production of blood factors including many of those necessary for blood clotting, and for normal body fluid balance
- The removal of toxins from the blood including those produced by bacteria in the gut and for the breakdown of alcohol and many drugs
- The removal of germs in the blood absorbed from the gut
- The processing of some hormones and vitamins
Why liver transplant ?
Liver Transplant is needed when a person develops either acute (sudden) or chronic liver failure. Liver transplant is a life saving procedure in this setting.
Acute liver failure (ALF) happens suddenly. It may be caused by various reasons. In India, acute viral infection from Hepatitis A and E are the commonest cause, though it may also occur from drug induced liver damage (DILI), with acetaminophen being the leading cause
Chronic liver failure, also called end-stage liver disease, is a slower process, which progresses over months, years, or decades. Most often, chronic liver failure is the result of cirrhosis, a condition in which the liver cells progressively get destroyed and are replaced with scar tissue through out the liver.

Baby Rhae Christen
There was a moment then that I thought of giving her up. So I went to the church to talked to GOD and ask HIS grace and blessing for baby RC for we cannot do anything about it. When I went out of the chapel, I felt better and full of hope. God guided us what to do to raise the funds that we need and we learned about Apollo Hospital in India who could do the Liver Transplant with a much cheaper cost. Thanks to Dr. Neerav Goyal and team for the treatment.
