Understanding the Significance of the Liver

Situated in the upper right abdominal region, the liver holds significant importance within the human body. The liver is located right below the diaphragm and above the stomach. However, in some cases the liver may be located on the left side. This condition is called situs inversus. It is the largest solid organ in the human body which also aids in the production of hormones and proteins essential for the functioning of other organs. This glandular organ is reddish brown in color and has a lobed & spongy texture. The liver is often commonly referred to as the chemical factory of the human body as it assumes a pivotal role in several metabolic processes within our body. The liver weighs approximately 1.3 to 1.4 kg in an adult.
