Pancreas & Liver
Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas. The pancreas is a large, flat gland located in the upper abdomen, between the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine.
Autoimmune hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the liver.
Cirrhosis, also known as hepatic fibrosis, is a condition of the liver that causes irreversible scarring and deterioration.
Left untreated, hepatitis B can become a serious, chronic condition that may permanently damage the liver.
Chronic Hepatitis C is the leading cause of cirrhosis, liver cancer and liver transplants in the United States.
The liver is an essential organ that removes impurities from blood, and converts food to energy. If large portions of the liver become damaged and fail to function properly, liver failure may result.
The liver serves as a filter for the body by removing harmful toxins or impurities from the bloodstream.
