It has many important roles in our health including the metabolism of nutrients, storage and activation of vitamins and minerals, filtering the blood, removal of drugs and hormones, synthesis and excretion of bile. Liver Disease can be an Acute or Chronic disease. Acute disease may result from viral infections, alcohol, drugs or poison. Chronic disease may occur when there is significant damage to the liver from alcohol, drugs, infections, autoimmune diseases (eg Primary Biliary Cirrosis), metabolic disorders (eg Haemachromatosis), biliary obstructions, vascular disorders, or a fatty liver.
Our Dietitians can help guide you with the latest scientific evidence on an appropriate diet. This may include helping you to lose weight in a safe manner if you have a Fatty Liver Disease. If you have advanced liver disease, our Dietitians can assist with preventing or correcting malnutrition and the symptoms of your condition.
