There are over one hundred liver disorders. Some common types are:

  • hepatitis (inflammation of the liver)
  • cirrhosis (scarring of the liver)
  • gallstones (which gather wherever there is bile, usually in the gall bladder),
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  • Cancer of the liver
  • Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (which destroys medium sized bile ducts within the liver)
  • Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (which the bile ducts progressively decrease in size)
  • Haemochromatosis (iron overload)
  • Wilson’s disease (where the body cannot control copper levels)
  • Biliary Atresia (causing the obstruction of bile flow in babies).
