In brief: You might not

Chronic liver or kidney disease is often asymptomatic until it approaches end stage (near death).
You could have swelling of feet, turn yellow, have itching, tiredness, low energy level, short of breath. Risk factors include family history, viral hepatitis infection, diabetes, hypertension, ; liver and kidney function is easily and cheaply tested.
