Liver Health Screening:

Hepatitis C Testing

Did you know – there is no vaccine for Hepatitis C?  Hep-C is a highly contagious virus transmitted by blood that causes liver disease.  Because liver disease is a progressive disease that doesn’t usually show symptoms until advanced stages, most infected people do not know they have Hep-C.  Left untreated, Hep-C can lead to cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer.  Luckily, there is now a cure for Hepatitis C, so no person should go untreated!

Have YOU been tested?

 Simple finger prick, no blood draw required

Fatty Liver Screening

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is predicted to replace Hepatitis C as the #1 reason for liver transplant!  Yet NAFLD is, for the most part, preventable!  It can also be reversed through proper nutrition and physical activity.

 

Are YOU at risk for NAFLD?

Type 2 Diabetes
Obesity
High cholesterol
High triglycerides

 

If you have the risk factors above, this event is for you!  Liver experts from Reddy GI will provide free fatty liver disease screening with the Fibroscan® machine.  The machine is noninvasive and uses transient elastography to measure liver stiffness.
