The havoc of Coronavirus is once again troubling people. A big news has come out which is shocking. Actually, the corona virus first targets our lungs, although it poses no less risk to our liver. In fact, recently new research from the University of Tennessee in the US has shown that 11% of corona affected patients have liver problems. At the same time, doctors believe that even the vaccines developed against corona are not able to save our liver. In fact, in a recent research, researchers have found that the corona virus increases the number of important enzymes present in the liver.
These enzymes are called alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST). According to research, the amount of these liver enzymes was found to be high in 15 to 53 percent of corona patients. It can be said that the liver of these people was temporarily damaged. Not only this, any type of coronavirus, whether delta or omicron, has a negative effect on the main cells of the liver. Yes and this slows down the functioning of the liver and the medicines given during corona infection also threaten our liver. Let us tell you that due to corona, there can be heavy swelling and jaundice in the liver.
At the same time, patients are at risk of developing liver failure. At the same time, according to scientists, if you already have serious liver disease, then the risk of getting corona increases even more. This infection can also prove to be fatal for you. Dr Jatin Aggarwal of Max Hospital says that even if there are no symptoms of corona, body parts can be damaged. There have been many cases where the patient had no symptoms of the virus, yet his liver was damaged.
This means that people can also complain of jaundice and liver failure in asymptomatic cases. Dr Aggarwal further said that vaccines made against corona protect the infection from becoming serious in the body, but according to the information received so far, it cannot save our liver in case of infection. So don’t make the mistake of taking Corona lightly.
