    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:02 Cirrhosis is a late stage of scarring or fibrosis.

    00:06 It develops after years of chronic liver disease and is an end stage of liver disease.

    00:12 Each time the liver is injured by disease or alcohol, it needs to repair itself and then these scars from.

    00:19 Cirrhosis has no signs or symptoms initially until the damage is extensive.

    00:25 Risk factors for developing cirrhosis include excessive weight, excessive alcohol or chronic viral hepatitis as scarring continues and progresses in the liver.

    00:37 The liver can't perform as well, and there are many signs that the liver is causing complications in other parts of the body.

    00:46 Thank you for watching our video today.
