Liver failure

Liver failure is the final stages of many liver diseases and is life-threatening. Most often liver failure happens gradually and over many years. This is called chronic liver failure. At this point, most of the liver is damaged beyond repair and does not work anymore. Acute liver failure, when the liver stops working within days or weeks, is rare but it can happen to people who have not had any liver problems or disease.
