The liver is responsible for preventing toxin accumulation because it aids in cleansing the body. Since the liver is so important, you want to make sure that you know when something is not right. There are certain symptoms that can indicate an issue with your liver; if you experience these, you should make an appointment with your doctor to ensure that all is well.
Stool or Urine Changes
There is a yellow pigment called bilirubin and it can build up in the body as well as the stool and urine resulting in color changes. When there is too much bilirubin, the kidneys go to work to remove it from the body. When the liver is functioning normally, most of the excess bilirubin in the body is excreted in your stool. When more of it is going out via your urine, your urine becomes darker. Of course, less bilirubin in your stool results in your stool being more pale than it usually is. Many people experience jaundice along with this.
