In brief: Encephalopathy
It means that due to extensive liver damage, the organ can no longer clear toxins and by products of diet and other substances out of your body.
As these substance accumulate, particularly ammonia, the patient becomes encephalopathic, which means the brain becomes affected by these substances. Other organs also ten to malfunction with time.
