A new report commisioned by the Liver Foundation has revealed shocking findings about the social and economic impact on liver disease in Australia
THE LIVER FOUNDATION
The Liver Foundation exists to address the spectrum of Liver disease from very mild liver disease in the community, right through to advanced liver disease ie people requiring liver transplantation and people with severe complications of liver disease, including liver cancer.
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. The liver is essential for digesting food and ridding your body of toxic substances.
