Liver

The liver is one of the largest and most vital organs in the human body, located on the right side of the abdomen. It performs numerous essential functions, including detoxification, metabolism of nutrients, storage of glycogen, production of bile for digestion, and synthesis of proteins, clotting factors, and cholesterol. The liver plays a central role in processing and filtering blood, removing toxins, drugs, and waste products. It is also responsible for metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, contributing to overall energy balance and maintaining blood glucose levels. Proper liver function is crucial for overall health, and conditions that affect the liver, such as fatty liver disease, viral hepatitis, and cirrhosis, can have significant health implications. Adopting a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, moderate alcohol consumption, and regular exercise, can promote liver health and prevent liver-related complications.
