Inconsistent: The liver can partially regenerated if a portion of a healthy liver is removed surgically. When you take drugs that cause liver toxicity, they do so over the entire liver and may cause damage severe enough that regeneration is not possible.

Dr. Arthur Heller
Gastroenterology 43 years experience
Liver stops making: The liver makes lots of proteins, including clotting factors. Liver disease (acute or chronic) that knocks out enough active liver cells causes less protein to be made in general, and clotting factors included.. In addition platelets (blood clotting cells) decrease in liver disease.
