Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly helps the liver to work well.
If you’re living with liver disease, your diet is often adjusted to meet your individual needs. You should always talk to your doctor about what’s best for you, but here are some general food tips for a healthier liver:
Some patients, like those with Primary Biliary Cholangitis, are at higher risk of malnutrition, metabolic changes, and the reduction of absorption of important vitamins such as A, D, E and K. Additionally, additional dietary changes are often suggested for patients- like smaller, more frequent meals, higher consumption of protein, and lower sodium intake. For those patients a healthy diet is especially crucial and they are often in search of greater assistance and dietary guidance.
Patients often ask us what a healthy day of eating looks like. That’s why our Great Lakes Division recently put together the first four parts of a new series, “In the Doctor’s Kitchen” featuring two physicians from our Medical Advisory Committee, Dr. Lisa VanWagner and Dr. Donald Jensen. We invite you to watch them and recreate these healthy dishes at home!
Support of Doctors in the Kitchen was provided by Intercept Pharmaceuticals and the production assistance of Outcome Health. The American Liver Foundation was responsible for the creation of all content.
