I have polycystic liver and kidney disease. Im51 an have bruses on my arms, thighs, an abdomen. Why?
Doctor will do tests: Bruises mean blood leaked out of vessels in the skin. The liver makes important blood-clotting factors, so liver disease can increase bleeding & bruising.

Daughter was hit by SUV at 40 mph had serious blunt force LIVER (and kidney lac., crushed orbital floorEtc...) LACERATION how long to completely heal?
Serious trauma: Serious blunt force trauma can take a long time to heal completely. Assuming that she has no complications during her recovery, it may still take her months to recover, perhaps even longer if she has a brain injury, which you did not comment on. I'd ask her trauma surgeon for more details. A positive? She is only 16, and youth certainly makes healing go faster. Stay the course. She's alive! ...Read more
Liver and Kidney: Its a great question and complicated. The syndrome is called hepatorenal syndrome which is often because the amount of blood flow to the kidney is lessened which causes kidney injury- is a simple explanation. It also may be related to the reasons that liver failure ensued: for example hepatitis, drug overdose, toxins etc. Great question! ...Read more

Hard to say: Kidney failure only occurs in the very last stages of very severe liver failure, and most people will have ascites (fluid accumulating in the abdominal cavity) and edema (swollen legs and elsewhere) before that occurs. Improvement of the liver disease, which should happen if you completely stop drinking, should help considerably. There is no pain generally, lab tests are needed to follow it. ...Read more

It depends what dose: An overdose is a relative term. Otc dose is less than half of the prescription dose. However, the dose is guided by other risks also e.g. Causing ulcer or gastritis or blood thinning. The drug could certainly cause renal failure even in mild overdose, but on the other hand some people handle it better than others. Sometimes it is too late when people figure out that they actually don't tolerate it. ...Read more

Don't give up, man!!: The questions I hear you asking is, "can I perhaps survive this after all? " you're read, correctly, that when liver failure becomes so severe that it causes the lungs or kidneys to fail, recovery is unlikely. If you are writing this from your home, and fairly comfortable, your kidneys have not failed. A sober, compliant diabetic's liver can heal and work well for him for decades. Be strong, man. ...Read more

Respiratory failure: Too much Aspirin interferes with the last part of your aerobic metabolism of energy, cytochrome c. It uncouples this area and one has to resort to anaerobic metabolism. Severe metabolic acidosis will ensue, the respiratory system will try to compensate but will fail and combined acidosis ensues and lack of energy just will not sustain life. ...Read more
My brother suffered liver failure (shutdown), kidney failure and is in a coma. He is diabetic too. What can be done to help him?

Do you know the cause of the liver failure? He is obviously very sick. Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. I'm so sorry. Best to him, you, and your family. ...Read more
