If you have liver disease, there are some things you can do to protect your liver and prevent any further damage.
If you have liver disease, it’s very important to talk to your doctor about vaccinations you need to protect your health.
All drugs, even over-the-counter ones, have potentially harmful side effects. Since many medicines are processed by the liver, people with liver disease need to be especially careful about what and how much medicine they take.
In some people with liver disease, liver tonics can be very dangerous. They can damage the liver even more or lead to liver failure.
It’s a good idea to avoid toxins (poisons) that will put further strain on your liver.
One of the best things you can do for your liver – and your overall health – is to stop smoking. Smoking not only damages the lungs and heart, it threatens the liver’s health too.
Looking after your mental health will be good for your liver and your general health. Reducing stress helps your body by improving your immune system, digestion, blood pressure and sleep.
