The liver is the largest internal solid organ. It is located on the right side of abdomen, just beneath lower ribs. It carries out diverse body functions including filtering of blood from the digestive tract before it passes to the rest of the body, clearing the body of toxins and drugs, making proteins, including albumin; some of which help the blood to clot. A number of diseases can affect the liver. As the liver fails, its functions become less efficient. Consequently, liver disease can impact all body systems including blood clotting, hormone and sugar regulation, immune system and fluid balance.
