The liver is a large organ in the upper right-hand side of the abdomen. It is involved in many important functions, including storing energy, producing fluids that the body needs, and removing harmful substances from the bloodstream.
Liver failure is a condition in which the liver loses its ability to function due to injury or disease. Liver failure can develop quickly, over days or weeks (acute liver failure). It can also develop gradually, over months or years (chronic liver failure).
Treatment for this condition depends on the cause and the severity of symptoms.
