Although the corona virus first targets our lungs, but it also poses no less threat to our liver. According to a new research by the University of Tennessee, America, 11% of the patients suffering from corona have liver problems. Doctors believe that even the vaccines developed against corona are not able to save our liver.
This is how corona virus attacks the liver
In research, researchers have found that the corona virus increases the amount of important enzymes present in the liver. These enzymes are named alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST). According to research, these liver enzymes were found in excess in 15 to 53 percent of corona patients. It can be said that the liver of these people was temporarily damaged.
Our liver is also at risk from the medicines given during corona infection.
Any variant of the corona virus, whether it is delta or omicron, has a negative effect on the main cells of the liver. This slows down the functioning of the liver. Our liver is also at risk from the medicines given during corona infection.
risk of liver failure in corona patients
Due to corona, there can be heavy swelling and jaundice in the liver. Apart from this, there is also a risk of liver failure in patients. According to scientists, if you already have a serious liver disease, then the risk of getting corona increases further. This infection can also prove to be fatal for you.
There is also a risk of liver failure in patients due to corona.
No symptoms of corona? your liver is still at risk
Dr. Jatin Agarwal of Max Hospital says that even if there are no symptoms of corona, the organs of the body can get damaged. There have been many cases in which the patient did not have any symptoms of the virus, yet his liver was injured. That is, even in asymptomatic cases, people may complain of jaundice and liver failure.
Even vaccine cannot save liver from corona
According to Dr. Aggarwal, the vaccines made against corona prevent the infection from becoming serious in the body. But according to the information received so far, they cannot save our liver in case of infection. So don’t make the mistake of taking Corona lightly. We can save our body from this disease only by following the covid protocol.
Doctors believe that even corona vaccines are not capable of saving our liver.
How to keep liver healthy during third wave?
According to doctors, high protein diet can keep the liver healthy. Include more and more things like eggs, milk, pulses, green vegetables, fruits, cheese, nuts, seeds, beans, fish and chicken in the food. By consuming caffeine, the enzymes present in the liver remain under control. This will keep both your liver and immune system strong.
