Liver disease can affect any one of us

Liver disease is known as the ‘silent killer’ as the symptoms are hard to diagnose and often missed or misdiagnosed. 40 people a day die of liver related conditions.

 

The liver is an incredible organ, carrying out over 500 functions for us, in the background, uncomplaining, and unable to tell us it is in pain – often until it is too late.

 

Liver damage can be caused by poor diet and lack of exercise, viral hepatitis or alcohol. There are genetic and hereditary conditions, and prescription medications can also damage the liver. But if the damage is caught early enough, the liver can regenerate. Sadly families often only find out about the British Liver Trust when they have a loved one who is desperately ill, or when they have lost their loved one to a devastating liver condition.

 

There are over 100 causes of liver damage and the impact is the same, regardless of the cause. All liver damage can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.

 

British Liver Trust works to support patients and families and improve early detection – thus saving lives. We run a helpline, online support and patient groups, and we work with doctors, nurses and policy makers to improve services across the UK.
A gift in your Will could help the charity to reverse the increasing trend of liver damage; legacies could help to support our Love Your Liver campaign or fund research to find causes and treatments for liver conditions long into the future.
