January is Love Your Liver Awareness Month.
At the British Liver Trust, we support and provide information to thousands of patients with liver conditions each year. We also aim to raise awareness of the steps people can take to reduce their risk of developing a preventable liver condition.
January is often a time that people take stock after the Christmas period but this year it is even more important as the numbers at risk have also increased during the Covid pandemic. Many people have increased their alcohol consumption and gained weight during lockdown – the two biggest risk factors for developing liver disease.
