Liver Problems – An Overview

As per the latest reports, liver diseases are emerging out to be the next major lifestyle disorder after hypertension and diabetes.

Some statistical studies show that liver cirrhosis will grab the 12th place for the leading cause of death in the world by 2020. Have you ever thought why there is an increase in demand for liver transplantation in the recent population?
