World Liver Day 2023

World Liver Day 2023

World Liver Day - 19th of April, is celebrated annually to spread awareness about the importance of maintaining liver health. 

Regular screening for liver disease is essential as liver disease is common and mostly preventable. However, most patients report these signs and symptoms late. The most common liver diseases are:

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) 

Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD)

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis C

Liver diseases impose a significant healthcare burden. Most liver diseases remain silent at the early stages, and hence, regular screening is necessary for early detection. When detected at asymptomatic stages, curative treatments can prevent disease progression. 

Measures to prevent chronic liver disease include:

• Maintaining ideal body weight

• Alcohol intake within safe limits

• Low-sugar diet

• Vaccination against hepatitis B
