The Causes, Symptoms, Risk Factors and Treatment of an Enlarged Liver

Risk Factors. The risk factors for an enlarged liver and the same risk factors for many liver conditions. People who need to take large amounts of medications, or who take far too many vitamins and supplements are at risk. These can damage the liver. There are several “medicinal” herbs that people choose to take and these can also cause damage to a liver. The most common risk factor is alcoholism or excessive alcohol consumption. The liver does what it can, but it can’t be processing alcohol all of the time.
