Liver disease, also called hepatic disease, is a broad term that includes conditions caused by viruses (hepatitis A, B, C, D), drugs or alcohol (cirrhosis), and liver cancer. Because the liver performs a multitude of functions for the body—including filtering toxins out of the blood and converting food into energy—any conditions that harm the liver can lead to major complications that affect the entire body.
