Awareness Month

January is 'Love Your Liver' Awareness Month 

"One in three of us are at risk of getting liver disease.  It is a silent killer and people often don’t realise they have a problem until it is too late."  - Pamela Healy, CEO, British Liver Trust

The British Liver Trust aim to increase awareness and transform lives through their 'Love Your Liver' Campaign. 

Did you know that 9 in 10 cases of liver disease could be prevented?

You only have one liver, so it’s important to know how to look after it. Your liver is the largest organ inside your body and does hundreds of essential jobs. It works hard and can take a lot of abuse, but it is like an elastic band – it can only stretch so far before it breaks.

3 key steps to love your liver: 

  • Cut down on alcohol
  • Keep a healthy weight
  • Protect yourself from viral hepatitis
