Rare liver injury reduced wbcs. Why?

Rare liver injury reduced wbcs. Why?

Leukopenia: Reduced wbcs are termed "leukopenia" and can occur during any organ injury. For the liver, this can occur during a more chronic phase that results in cirrhosis of the liver. At that point we see the effects of cirrhosis on other organs, specifically the spleen. The spleen enlarges (splenomegaly) and sequesters white blood cells (wbcs) as well as rbcs and platelets. This results in pancytopenia. ...Read more

Read somewhere liver is only organ in the abd area that can repair itself. Then an abdominal injury could dmge other organs 4 life. That's disastrous.

Read somewhere liver is only organ in the abd area that can repair itself. Then an abdominal injury could dmge other organs 4 life. That's disastrous.

Somewhat true: The statement that the liver is the only organ that can repair itself is somewhat misleading. All organs will heal and scar. The gut is replacing it's lining every day. It is rare that one gets an abdominal injury severe enough to take out an entire solitary organ (pancreas, stomach) and survive. Of course it is possible to lose a kidney since that is a paired not a solitary organ. ...Read more

With an extremity injury, which causes less stress on the liver: drink 2 glasses of wine, or take the Vicodin my MD prescribed me? Obviously not both.

With an extremity injury, which causes less stress on the liver: drink 2 glasses of wine, or take the Vicodin my MD prescribed me? Obviously not both.

It depends: That is a difficult question to answer since there are a number of variables which need to be taken into account. Factors which effect the liver's ability to metabolize acetaminophen or wine include your baseline hepatic function, other medications that you are taking, how much wine/alcohol you drink and for how long, and how much Vicodin or other acetaminophen containing drugs you are taking. ...Read more

Liver injury: It's difficult today you have a liver injury. There are many insults that can cause liver enzymes to go high temporarily, like an infection or even some medications. But after a few days, they should fall back down to normal. One isolated value isn't as concerning as a more longstanding trend. It's unlikely your coffee caused increased liver enzymes (unless it was more Bailey's than coffee.) ...Read more
