The liver is an organ that we cannot live without. It has numerous functions, one of which is to clean the blood of impurities and toxins. If it cannot do this then our blood will become toxic to us, and we will die. Liver transplants are available, although they are not always successful and can lead to various complications.

Liver failure is a serious condition, so it pays to know what to look for. If you catch it early then you may be able to cure it or at least limit the damage. Here are some of the signs that suggest that you might have liver damage.

Symptom #1: Brown Urine

You have probably noticed at times how your urine is not always the same color. This is largely down to what you put in your body, although there are other factors. It could also be down to having certain impurities being present in the blood and this could suggest liver failure.

The liver is responsible, among other things, for processing bilirubin. This is a compound that is a by-product of breaking down red blood cells. Bilirubin is yellow-brown in color, and having this substance in your urine is likely to make your urine turn brown as well. If you do have discolored urine, you should arrange to get it checked out.
