Description - Coping with Liver Disease by Mark Greener

Liver disease is the leading cause of death after heart, cancer, stroke and respiratory disease, and kills more people than diabetes and road deaths combined. But, there is hope. The liver is a uniquely regenerative organ, and some European countries have dramatically cut liver disease in recent years. This book looks at lifestyle factors and medical interventions that can help.

Topics include:
About the liver and gall bladder
Types of liver disease including hepatitis, cirrhosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFL) and hepatitis
Tests and checks
Treatment including medication
Diet
Alcohol
`Cleansing' the liver
Obesity and other lifestyle considerations
Coping with increased vulnerability to infections
