    Can you live without your liver?

    The absence of a liver is incompatible with life. This would be impossible since the liver handles such diverse processes as glucose metabolism, protein synthesis, bile circulation, and excretion of a variety of waste products. There would be a massive accumulation of ammonia from ingested protein, eventually leading to coma, a loss of clotting proteins, which ultimately lead to life-threatening bleeding, and possible vascular collapse due to the absence of albumin. Besides, liver produces clotting factors which take up to 2 days. The patient without the organ will start to have uncontrollable bleeding.

    It’s possible to remove from 25 to 65 percent of your liver and it will regenerate itself.
