Liver disease can be genetic. Viruses, alcohol abuse and obesity are one of the few various factors that can cause liver problems. Over a period of time, damage to the liver can lead to cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), causing liver failure. However, the liver can heal if early treatment is given.

Liver disease can also be genetic and an abnormal gene can be inherited. Diseases like Wilson’s disease, Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and Hemochromatosis are genetic liver diseases. Certain growths and cancer can also affect the liver, like Liver adenoma, liver cancer and bile duct cancer.
