Love Your Liver - Awareness Month - Jan 2022

Happy New Year and time to for a Happy New You.

GMEC Solutions are supporting the British Liver Trust and the National Awareness Month to have the nation to show their liver some love in January and take their first steps towards better liver health.

Why you should love your liver

The liver is a fascinating organ and its importance is often underrated. It’s an amazing multi-tasker and has over 500 vital jobs to do to keep you alive. It’s just as important as other organs like your heart and lungs, but they tend to steal most of the limelight.

In the UK, liver disease is on the rise. The three major preventable causes are drinking alcohol, obesity and viral hepatitis.

When it’s damaged, the liver can repair itself, but only up to a point. Sadly, people with liver disease often don’t have any symptoms until the disease has progressed and it’s far too late for treatment. That’s why it’s so important to know the risk factors and to keep your liver happy and healthy for life – before long-lasting damage can occur. Take your first steps towards better liver health today.

This January, let’s show our livers some love by doing something healthy.
