Cirrhosis is a serious condition where normal liver tissue is replaced by scar tissue (fibrosis). Any scarring of the liver not caused by drinking is referred to by the broad term nonalcoholic cirrhosis.
Symptoms of nonalcoholic cirrhosis
Nonalcohol cirrhosis often has no significant symptoms. The common symptoms include fatigue, weakness, weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, spider-like blood vessels, yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), itching, fluid build up and swelling of the legs (edema) and abdomen (ascites), and mental confusion.
It is often diagnosed after liver function tests
