The morning look in the mirror can sometimes be quite sad. Once again, you haven't slept well because the stress of everyday life has made your thoughts spin. The result: Dark circles under the eyes! Or a somewhat nicer occasion: you've partied all night! Then, too, you have to reckon with deeply discoloured shadows the next morning. Only then do you at least know where they come from. And in such a case, they often disappear again soon. But what if the dark circles are not only due to a lack of sleep and become a constant companion? Could there be a serious illness? In some cases, unfortunately, yes! The trigger could be, for example, a relatively harmless Iron deficiency be. But it could also be a serious Liver disease are present. In this case, you should not take dark circles lightly. Here you can find out everything about this important topic!
Liver disease as a cause of dark circles under the eyes
Circles under the eyes are usually a harmless cosmetic problem. But sometimes they are also a signal that there is something seriously wrong with your body. For example, it could be a liver disease. This is one of the symptoms of dark circles under the eyes. What happens? Waste products that the body can no longer remove due to the disease are deposited in the vessels under the eyes.
Or the yellow pigment bilirubin, which occurs more frequently in the blood in liver diseases (such as hepatitis), shines through the blood vessels conspicuously through the thin skin under the eyes. Hepatitis is therefore also called jaundice. In general, hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Chronic hepatitis is present when it has already lasted longer than six months. Anyone who suffers permanently from dark circles under the eyes should definitely see a doctor to have the cause reliably diagnosed.
What other symptoms can indicate liver disease?
But before you run to the doctor in a panic, you should listen to yourself and check whether there are other symptoms that could indicate a liver disease. In addition to heavily discoloured dark circles under the eyes, it can also cause the following other symptoms:
- Constant tiredness and fatigue
- Permanent concentration disorders
- Annoying itching
- Persistent loss of appetite
- Strong weight fluctuations
- Feeling of pressure in the right upper abdomen
- Clay coloured chair
- Beer brown urine
What makes the liver sick?
The good news is: our liver is an extremely robust organ. But even the powerful detoxification centre of our body unfortunately has its limits. The liver can be damaged by the following causes:
- Hepatitis viruses
- Toxins such as medicines and alcohol
- Metabolic diseases
- Autoimmune diseases
If you suspect that your liver is diseased, a detailed blood test by a doctor is essential. Depending on the disease, medical therapy may be necessary.
What are the liver diseases?
Liver disease is the world's biggest health problem. In Germany alone, more than 5 million people suffer from acute or chronic liver disease. It is advisable to act quickly here, because if liver damage is detected too late, it cannot be reversed with any treatment. The following diseases of the liver exist:
- Hepatitis (jaundice): There are different forms of hepatitis viruses that can lead to inflammation of the liver.
- Cholangitis: This is an inflammation of the bile ducts. It can be caused by obstruction of the bile ducts by gallstones, stenosis, tumours or parasite infestation.
- Acute liver failure: A rare but life-threatening condition characterised by acute liver failure and hepatic encephalopathy.
- Tumours: The most common malignant tumours of the liver are metastases of bowel, stomach, pancreas, breast or lung cancer. The most common benign liver tumour is haemangioma, a new formation of blood vessels in the liver.
- Echinococcosis: It is caused by a tapeworm infestation, which can trigger severe liver disease.
- Fatty liver: This is when fat is increasingly stored in the liver cells. Experts say that about 20 to 30 percent of the population in western industrialised countries suffer from non-alcohol-related fatty liver due to poor diet and too little exercise. But alcohol can also be a trigger! A fatty liver can in turn cause diabetes.
- Alcohol damage to the liver: They are caused by the toxic effect of alcohol and its degradation products. They first manifest themselves as a fatty liver. Later they can lead to alcoholic hepatitis or even cirrhosis of the liver.
- Cirrhosis of the liver: It is the final stage of liver damage. At the beginning, it becomes noticeable through a progressive increase in connective tissue (fibrosis), from which so-called cirrhosis nodules can later form.
What diet prevents liver disease?
To strengthen your liver innately and protect it from disease, you can do a lot with the right diet. The following foods are like a wellness holiday for your liver:
- Grapefruit: Strengthens the general health of the liver.
- Garlic: Promotes detoxification of the liver.
- Green tea: Eliminates the fat in the liver.
- Lenses: Promote ammonia decomposition.
- Cabbage: Neutralises the toxins in the body.
- Tomatoes: Purify the organ.
- Avocado: Promotes the regeneration of your liver.
- Lemon juice: Boosts intestinal and bile function.
