Russian hepatologist Dr. Andrei Yakushev announced that liver disease can become a possible cause of depression.

The specialist points out liver diseases develop without symptoms. Because the liver is devoid of nerve endings, pain does not appear, except in cases of expansion of the liver capsules, reports Al-Rai daily.

Liver disease can manifest as tremors, itchy skin and mood swings. The most obvious one is persistent skin itching with no blisters and rashes. This usually appears in women over the age of 50.

And he adds: The second sign that may indicate liver injury is depression, which is usually observed in children and young people under twenty years of age.

“Often these are symptoms of a rare disease – Wilson-Konovalov disease, caused by too much copper buildup in the liver and left untreated,” he says.

According to him, the disease may be cerebral, meaning that the brain is the main affected person, and it may also be the liver if cirrhosis develops at an early age.

He says, “In the case of brain injury, the liver also suffers, but not at the same level as the brain, in which specific changes occur that lead to mood swings and tremors.”

He added: One of the unclear symptoms of liver disease is the high level of iron “ferritin” in the body, as it may indicate hemochromatosis, which is caused by the deposition of a large amount of iron in the liver and other organs of the body, which leads to cirrhosis and liver cancer.
