Get Smart About Your Liver Animation
Liver disease is on the rise in Queensland with up to 1 in 5 people living with fatty liver disease and 1 in 100 living with viral hepatitis.
This July, in support of World Hepatitis Day (28 July), Hepatitis Queensland is encouraging all Queenslanders to ‘Get Smart’ about their liver health.
Anyone can get liver disease and most people do not know they have it. Left untreated, liver disease can lead to permanent liver damage such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.
The good news is simple lifestyle behaviours can reduce the risk of serious liver disease. As well as eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and drinking alcohol responsibly, Queenslanders can see their GP for a liver check and hepatitis test.
