Fatty liver: Spider veins in five areas could signal sluggish blood flow and 'scarring'


In fact, the report states that the prevalence of spider angiomas in cirrhosis patients is around 33 percent.

This high number can be put down to the inability of the liver to metabolise circulating oestrogen during cirrhosis.

At this stage of the disease, known as end-stage liver disease, normal liver cells are replaced by scar tissue, which interferes with all of the organs’ important functions.

In some cases, damage can completely compromise the function of the liver and may warrant a liver transplant.
