Dr. Kevin Moore, Professor of Hepatology at the University of College London, joins us today to discuss liver health, ailments, and function. In this episode, we learn all about specific conditions that affect the liver, such as fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, and hepatitis. Dr. Moore discusses the causes of fatty liver disease, whether or not there are effective medications to treat it, and what we, as patients, can (and shouldn’t) eat and drink to keep our livers in optimal health. Dr. Moore also discusses how chronic alcohol intake can harm the liver, and whether or not that damage can be mitigated later on in life.
Tune in to hear Dr. Moore provide an overview of liver function tests, what they mean, and specific things you can do to keep your liver healthy.
