In the absence or loss of function of the liver, its functions can be maintained for a short time with dialysis. But in the long-term absence of liver function, there is no way to compensate.
Dr. Fevzi Özgönül said, 'The liver, which is one of the largest organs, has vital tasks such as absorbing vitamins and minerals taken with food and cleaning harmful substances in the body.
Regular use of alcohol and consumption of excessively fatty foods can lead to liver diseases such as fatty liver, hepatitis and cirrhosis. The first step in liver health should be a balanced diet program in which the foods consumed are carefully selected. The right foods clean and protect the liver with their antioxidant effects.
