Hepatic impairment is the inability of the liver to perform normal functions, which leads to decomposition. Often, drugs are the main source of the liver's failure to function properly. It is important for medical service providers to monitor the status of the liver to person taking medication, especially if the drug has links to liver damage.

Factors that can lead to liver injury from medication are the following:

  • Race
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Preexisting liver disease & other health conditions
  • Family history
  • Formulation of the drug

Monitoring the intake of the drug by qualified medical care, along with early recognition of negative liver reactions to the drug can help prevent hepatic impairment. Liver impairment can develop quickly and is often life-threatening. The sure for is often a liver transplant, or medication and other medical treatment. Further research needs to be done to better develop drugs that do not produce negative side effects when used for treatment of other conditions.

The Atlanta Center for Medical Research was founded in 1982 by Dr. Robert A. Riesenberg and is now one of the largest and most respected medical research institutions in the country. ACMR’s 150,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, open-source research facility is a game changer for the medical research world. ACMR’s practices set the standard for medical research, facilitating the availability of safe and effective medicine to people everywhere.
