This World Liver Day we are taking a look at Fatty Liver Disease – serious stuff!

Event date
April 19, 2023 - April 19, 2023

This World Liver Day we are raising awareness of fatty liver disease. As you might imagine, fatty liver disease results from the build-up of excess fat in the liver cells, and it is actually quite common, affecting about one in every four people. The problem is that with few obvious symptoms many of us do not even know we have a fatty liver, and if its undiagnosed, it can develop into a more serious liver condition.

The good news is that you can reduce your chances of developing fatty liver disease by taking good care of your liver! Here’s a few things you can do, with the bonus that they’ll also be good for your general health:

  • Join our free My Liver Health Program this April! 
  • Keep active and incorporate exercise into your daily routine, like a brisk half-hour walk and low-impact weight training
  • Eat a balanced diet, high in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, fish and lean poultry.
  • Moderate consumption of alcohol
  • Check out our Living Well pages

You can learn more about ways to lower your chances of developing fatty liver disease by reading our Healthy Living Guide.

If you’re concerned, you can go request a simple blood test (liver function test) from your GP.
