What do you need to know about liver disease?

Many types of illnesses and diseases affect people pretty much the same across the board. A temporary illness, like the flu, usually makes a person nauseous, weak and generally unable to do much of anything for a few days.

Liver disease, however, affects people in many different ways and isn't always the easiest of diseases to diagnose.
