Love ur "liver"
This isnt a porno blog , it's still me - the wannabe doctor! The lady in the photo above isnt pregnant or having any kind of cyst and she's definitely not carrying any alien child inside the big stomach! In medical term - we called this as "ascites" ( dalam bahasa melayu.... ermmm.. perut berair kot? or maybe "busung"? not sure about the malay term... :P ) This is the most common complication of LIVER cirrhosis.
What is liver cirrhosis ->it is characterized by replacement of liver tissue by fibrous scar tissue as well as regenerative nodules (lumps that occur as a result of a process in which damaged tissue is regenerated)
dalam bahasa melayu , sel2 hati anda akan mati dan diganti oleh sel2 baru ( yg dipanggil firbous sel) yg bukan sel hati yg menyebabkan hati anda tidak dpt berfungsi spt biasa sbb sel2 hati anda sudah tiada.... something like that ( i really need to work on my malay medical term!)
What's the main cause of liver cirrhosis? ALCOHOL! Yup, that include beer, vodka, champange, rum , margarita , sex on the beach and what ever they called it. Maybe this kind of disease is pretty rare in malaysia , but here in moscow - liver cirrhosis is quite common. Not very suprising since the russian considered drinking alcohol is a part of their culture and vodka is like tea for them
So, what we could learn here is - dont drink alcohol! Nothing good come from drinking alcohol. No kidding. The best part of the liver cirrhosis is - there's no cure! Serve the "alcoholic" well.
