3. Nausea and vomiting
The liver is an important organ for the gastrointestinal system, which is why the healthcare professional that specializes in liver diseases is the gastroenterologist. One of many liver functions is to process bile, which is accumulated in the gallbladder and then gets released to the duodenum. The function of the bile in the gastrointestinal tract is to facilitate the absorption of fatty acids.
Thus, if your liver is not working correctly, your fat absorption and metabolism could be altered. That’s why patients with liver disease often complain of nausea and vomiting. These symptoms are common in the early and late stages of the disease.
