January is our Love Your Liver month, and the Love Your Liver campaign is a national awareness initiative about liver health by the British Liver Trust – the UK charity for adults with liver conditions.
The Love Your Liver Roadshow embarks on a tour of the UK each January, offering pop-up liver health clinics to get your liver health assessed and tested if necessary.
The British Liver Trust assessed the liver health of nearly 500 people in 8 locations in January 2013 (despite the snow!). Over 20% of people assessed were advised to visit their GP and request a Liver Function Test (a simple blood test).
The Love Your Liver roadshow is supported by FibroScan which is a non-invasive scan that evaluates the degree of liver stiffness, or scarring, known as fibrosis.
The Love Your Liver campaign brings together all aspects of maintaining a healthy liver and is delighted to have teamed up with Eisberg alcohol free wine and Morrisons supermarkets to deliver the next Love Your Liver Roadshow in January 2014.
The British Liver Trust is a national charity that funds medical research, provides vital support for those living with a liver condition and raises public awareness to prevent liver disease. Visit www.britishlivertrust.org.uk
