How being overweight damages your liver

Effects of being overweight.

A study of 3,000 overweight people from UK Biobank showed that 12% had inflamed and fatty livers.

The British Liver Trust treats the findings as a "Wake-up call" because being overweight could lead to cirrhosis, liver failure and death.

Unfortunately most symptoms aren't noticeable until it's too late.

Getting your liver back to normal

A healthier lifestyle and weight management can help you get your liver back to normal if it is in danger.

Better diet and physical activity can help change your liver from fatty to healthy.

Obesity and being overweight have shown a vast increase in various health risks.

The conditions have also adversely increased the risk of diabetes, heart disease and other coronary heart problems.
