What is it if you get spots on your legs that look like liver spots but they're black?

What is it if you get spots on your legs that look like liver spots but they're black?

See Dermatologist: Liver spots are flat, brown-black spots that appear on the skin in sun-exposed areas of the body. They have nothing to do with the liver. The spots are changes in skin color that occur in older skin. The increased color may be due to aging, exposure to the sun or other ultraviolet light, or other unknown causes. A dermatologist can check to see if "dark" spots are still just liver spots. Read more

Been in remission from hepc lately tho a lot of back. Leg pain and tiredness could it be the liver?

Been in remission from hepc lately tho a lot of back. Leg pain and tiredness could it be the liver?

Depends...: If you achieved svr (sustained viral remission) from hepatitis c, then congratulations! You're off treatment, so we can't blame the anti-viral rx. The underlying degree of liver disease may however determine what systemic manifestations you experience (was cirrhosis present before hepatitis c therapy?). More likely, your distress has little to do with prior hepatitis c, & deserves evaluation. Read more

Decompensated liver. ..what is my life span ive already had 6 varacies I suffer from a lot of water infections my legs have now started to swell?

Life expectancy: It is impossible to predict how long you are going to survive with this significant condition. Many people with varices secondary to portal hypertension from cirrhosis do not do very well and may not make it for another year, and yet some do. You can discuss this with your treating physician who will know more about your status. Good luck and best wishes. Read more

I have cellitus in the leg and my liver enzymes were elevated when they dis the blood test. Is this normal with an infection?

I have cellitus in the leg and my liver enzymes were elevated when they dis the blood test. Is this normal with an infection?

No: Your liver enzymes should not generally be elevated from an infection, unless the infection is because of a hepatitis virus. Also, if you've been receiving antibiotics, some of them can cause liver enzymes abnormalities. Once you are completely treated you should have them retested. If they are still elevated, then further investigation is indicated to find out why. Read more

I'm waitin to see doc for scan on my liver and my legs r itching that bad that they r bruising is this anything to do with my liver?

May be liver problem: The liver has been functions such as producing proteins, blood clotting factors, modulating your blood glucose and excreting bilirubin. If you have liver dysfunction, there can be a variety of symptoms. Itching can result if you have liver dysfunction and a high bilirubin level. Bile salts can deposit in the skin resulting in itching, though the mechanism is unclear. Bruising is also related. Read more
