An A to Z glossary of disabilities

Cirrhosis is when the liver is scarred by long-term damage. The damage can’t be cured and can cause the liver to stop functioning.

If the liver stops working this can be fatal although it can take years for the illness to reach this stage and there is treatment available which can slow down the process.

Around 4,000 people across the UK die from cirrhosis every year and 700 undergo a liver transplant to conquer the condition.
