1 in 4 Canadians May Be Affected By Liver Disease
1 in 4 is much more common than most people think. The truth is, most people don’t think about their liver health at all…until it’s too late. Please continue reading to learn how you can help change that.
‘Liver disease’ is a term that refers to a variety of diagnoses including Hepatitis B and C, Liver Cancer, Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Autoimmune Liver Diseases, Cirrhosis, liver diseases affecting children and more.
Why is this important?
It’s a myth that all liver diseases are alcohol related. One is, but there are also many other kinds of liver disease, and many other ways that you might develop one of them. And because liver disease often shows no symptoms, most people have no idea something is wrong until it is much too late.
