Liver Failure is a condition characterized by loss of liver function such that it's unable to perform its metabolic and synthetic duties. Liver failure may develop slowly over many years, and is, therefore, a chronic condition. On the other hand, rapid loss of liver function, which occurs over the span of a few weeks, implies acute liver failure. The treatment options and efficacy for either type of liver failure depend upon the stage of detection. Early diagnosis can reverse many of the effects. Otherwise, serious medical procedures, sometimes even a transplant may be required, to sustain the body.

1. Nausea

One of the early signs of liver failure is the recurrence of sick feelings, especially in the aftermath of meals. Nausea occurs because the liver plays a significant role in the digestive process. When the liver falters in its metabolic duties due to the onset of liver failure, indigestion produces nausea now and then. Mostly, in the early stages, nausea does not lead to actual vomiting spells.
