Know your Liver by Dr Vineet Gautam, Liver specialist at Indore
Your liver is your body’s “factory”, carrying out hundreds of jobs that are vital for life, including:
– storing glycogen (carbohydrate that produces short-term energy)
– making bile, which helps to digest fats
– making substances that clot the blood
– processing and removing any alcohol, toxins and drugs
You only have one liver, but it is very tough. It keeps going when badly damaged and can continue repairing itself until it is severely damaged.
