In brief: Liver Failure

A better definition of what you have should be obtained.
Liver failure means precisely that. The liver has failed & the patient may be headed toward a liver transplant depending upon a variety of factors. The full clinical situation should be assessed by a gastroenterologist or hepatologist(liver specialist) recommendations for therapy may then be made based upon a full analysis
