What are the causes of swollen hands in liver disease?

The liver is the organ that synthesizes albumin, and when it does not synthesize enough albumin to maintain normal body function, then oedema occurs and swelling of the hands may occur. Hepatogenic oedema usually spreads from the ankle upwards and is accompanied by signs and symptoms such as jaundice, spider nevus and varices in the abdominal wall.
