Your Complete Guide to Liver Health

Coping with Fatty Liver, Hepatitis, Cancer, and More

For those with any form of liver disease, this concise, practical guide from a trusted expert will help you take care of your liver and your health.

Liver disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality all over the world—and it's on the rise. Approximately 3.3 million US adults are currently living with hepatitis B or C, 25% of whom will go on to develop cirrhosis, cancer, or liver failure. More than 3 million new cases of fatty liver disease are reported each year in the United States alone, and the prevalence of this condition is increasing rapidly. Alcohol-related liver disease has become a leading cause of preventable death in young people.

In Your Complete Guide to Liver Health, world-renowned gastroenterologist and liver specialist Dr. Paul J. Thuluvath reveals how everything from infections to the medications you take to what you eat and drink can affect not only your liver but also your overall health. Dr. Thuluvath teaches you all you need to know about this vital organ, including

• how your liver works
• how to prevent liver infections and disease
• how diseases that affect the liver, including cancer, liver failure, fatty liver, hepatitis, and more, are diagnosed and treated
• which foods, drinks, and supplements to avoid
• how you can take care of your liver and your health for the rest of your life

In each chapter of this comprehensive yet concise book, Dr. Thuluvath explains in easy-to-follow language how the liver is affected by the various conditions covered, along with how each particular disease is diagnosed and treated. Those with a liver disease need to take special care not to cause additional damage to their liver—this book shows you how.
