This often has many complications, including accumulation of fluid in the abdomen (ascites), bleeding disorders (coagulopathy), increased pressure in the blood vessels of the liver (portal hypertension), and confusion or a change in the level of consciousness (hepatic encephalopathy). Common causes of chronic liver disease in the U.S. include: Hepatitis C infection and long-term alcohol abuse.
