Liver is the largest and busiest internal organ that does more than 500 vital functions. It is a key player in your body’s digestive system. Everything you eat or drink, including medicine, passes through it. You need to treat it right so it can stay healthy and do its job.
The liver is an organ about the size of a football. It sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. It has several important functions. It helps clean your blood by getting rid of harmful chemicals, drugs and alcohol. It produces a liquid called bile, which helps you break down fat from food and aids digestion. It also stores sugar called glucose, which gives you a quick energy boost when you need it. It also stores iron, vitamins and other essential nutrients. A healthy liver will directly relate to a good immunity system. Especially during COVID pandemic, strengthening your immunity is still the best defence weapon.
Liver disease can be inherited (genetic). Liver problems can also be caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses, alcohol use, obesity and overload with prolonged consumption of drugs.
Over time, conditions that damage the liver can lead to scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition. However, early treatment may give the liver time to heal.

Many people around the world live with conditions that affect the liver, including cirrhosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), alcoholic liver disease, liver cancer, liver failure, and hepatitis (1).
Every year, liver diseases account for nearly 2 million deaths worldwide.
There are two major types of fatty liver disease — alcohol-induced and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease affects nearly one-third of American adults and is one of the leading contributors to liver failure. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is most commonly diagnosed in those who are obese or sedentary and those who eat a highly processed diet and overloading on the liver due to insufficient rest. Non-alcoholic fatty liver is surging in western countries and statistics have shown a rising trend in Asia too. One of the reasons is due to modern digitalisation, world transformation and lifestyle. In 5-8 years, Asia will have 80% of the population having non-alcoholic fatty liver; and the age group is getting younger; which is alarming. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is tied to obesity, insulin resistance and heart diseases, and can lead to cirrhosis.
