    He has described the classic signs of a serious liver disease. Yellowing of the eyes is called jaundice , which is caused by rising levels of bilirubin in the bloodstream ( a healthy liver processes bilirubin and removes it from your bloodstream ) ) . The fluid in the abdomen ( called ascites) and legs could be due to a blockage of blood flow through the liver . Before the blood from your legs and your abdomen back to the heart , it must be filtered by the liver . If the liver is scarred ( a condition called cirrhosis) , blood flow is impaired , and increasing the " back pressure " leads to an accumulation of excess fluid in the abdominal cavity and in the lower extremities . If this man has not been seen by a doctor in a while , you need immediate medical attention. It must identify the cause of liver failure and should start treatment to treat complications of the early stages of liver disease.
