Liver cirrhosis is a liver disease marked by the development of scar tissue and nodules, which eventually leads to loss of liver function. The liver is responsible for metabolizing various foods and production certain substances needed by the body. Cirrhosis is a serious disease that changes the structure of the liver so that it cannot function properly. One of the biggest problems with cirrhosis is that less blood flows through the liver, and the toxins that are normally eliminated can now poison the body.
