SBS Khmer Podcast on Fatty Liver Disease with Tepy Hoeung

May 8, 2023

Last week our Health Promotion Officer Tepy Hoeung teamed up with SBS Khmer to record a podcast for the Cambodian community. The focus of the podcast was raising further awareness of liver disease, especially the impact of fatty liver disease, which is highly prevalent within the Cambodian community here in Australia.

Fatty liver disease is a condition caused by a build-up of fat in liver cells. It is normal for the liver to contain some fat but if fat makes up more than 10% of the liver’s weight, it is called fatty liver. It is quite common – about one in four Australians has fatty liver, and that number is thought to be even higher in priority populations such as the Cambodian community. The good news is if fatty liver is diagnosed by your doctor early, it can often be reversed.
