Top 6 ways to take care of your liver health
Give up on alcohol –

Your alcohol consumption is damaging your liver cells to an extent beyond your imagination. With the damage of liver over time, fat starts depositing on your liver walls that causes inflammation and swelling of liver called cirrhosis or fatty liver (as it is called in its benign condition).  

For people who are used to drinking alcohol on a regular basis, it is almost impossible to abstain from alcohol completely. You could decrease your alcohol intake to a moderate amount. A glass of 44 ml of 80 proof liquor (whiskey, gin, vodka, rum) is fine.
If you are suffering from any form of liver disease, even the smallest amount of alcohol has the potential to deteriorate your health condition. 

Eat right –

There is a very valuable quote that says, “Every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it”. Which one are you? Watch what you are filling your plate with.

Avoid high-fructose-content food like sodas and sugary drinks, frozen meat and junk food, salad dressing, baked food, canned fruit that can damage liver beyond repair.
You should also steer clear of refined carbs like white rice, pasta or bread. Eat food that are rich in fibre-content. 

Keep a check on your weight scale –

Fatty liver disease is caused not just by alcohol but another primary reason that leads to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is obesity.

Reducing weight, reducing fatty food consumption and exercising regularly are the keys to manage the condition.
With NAFLD, the risk of cardio-vascular diseases increase with a high cholesterol and diabetes. If diagnosis of NAFLD is at an earlier stage, putting a check on weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help to a great extent. 
Exercise –

A potential solution to prevent any disease/for a disease-free health is regular exercise. A mix of weight training and aerobics is a very effective workout regime to maintain a normal liver function.

Regular exercising boosts your body to burn triglycerides for fuel that reduces liver fat. Weight training prevents fat buildup in the body, which is responsible for fatty liver and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

Hydration –

A liver displays serious health issues when there are toxins filled in you liver. To detoxify the liver and our body in turn, it is very important we keep ourselves hydrated all through the day.

Dehydration directly impacts the liver’s functioning in detoxifying the body properly. Also our blood tends to get thicker when there is a dearth of water in our body. The thickness affects the liver’s ability to filter blood.

Safe sex –

How is sex related to liver? Hepatitis causes serious damage to the liver and Hepatitis B & C are caused by unprotected sex or sex with multiple partners. So it is advisable to always use contraceptives. 

If you are an alcoholic or experience any of these symptoms, its time you to meet a Hepatologist. Book appointment online.
Take responsibility of your liver. Change your way of life. Go healthy!
