In brief: Maybe, but...

No system of the body is spared with end-stage liver disease.
Will see general deterioration, endocrine problems, cardiovascular, GI (diarrhea, gastropathy) pancreatic-biliary, neurologic, hematologic (coagulopathy; bone marrow abnormalities), lung (hepatopulmonary), kidney (hepatorenal), lymphatic, dermatologic, musculoskeletal, higher risks of cancer. Other testing & exam will detect these.
