Liver Health

The liver is your largest internal body organ. It has many important functions including generating bile to help digest food, storing glucose vitamins and minerals, filtering toxins and producing enzymes which control blood clotting and other essential bodily functions. Our comprehensive range of Liver Checks helps identify whether your liver is functioning properly and whether it is showing signs of liver disease.

About Liver Health

Your liver can become damaged through alcohol abuse, drug abuse and diet as well as viral infections such as hepatitis. Fortunately, in the early stages of lifestyle-induced liver damage your liver can regenerate and repair itself. However, once damage becomes extensive and fibrosis and cirrhosis occurs, then liver disease can become irreversable. Early detection of liver disease gives you the opportunity to make the necessary changes to your lifestyle before damage becomes permanent.

 

Why have a Liver Check?

Your liver is one of your body's most complex organs involved in many vital functions from digestion to helping your body rid itself of harmful toxins. If you worry that you drink too much, eat too much, or have a dependency on drugs, prescription or otherwise then it is useful to have a Liver Check to check for early signs of disease.

Symptoms of Liver Health

The early stages of liver disease often have no specific symptoms with some signs easily confused with other problems.

Early symptoms can include:

  • fatigue and lethargy
  • loss of appetite
  • unexplained weight loss
  • unusual coloured urine and stools
  • general feeling of being unwell
