Every year on April 19, the world observes World Liver Day, a day dedicated to promoting awareness and understanding of liver diseases and the importance of maintaining liver health. And on this day, let us understand one of the important organs.
The liver controls every gramme of protein, glucose, and fat we eat. It also has control over a lot of extra lipids and proteins that are important for bodily functions. The condition of the liver is crucial for overall health. An unhealthy liver can lead to metabolic issues and liver disease. Type 2 diabetes is the most frequent cause of liver damage.
Even though it may not be possible to completely eliminate all risk factors, certain meals may help to support liver function. In this post, we’ll provide you with a list of foods to include in your diet that will help your liver mend and function better and tips to maintain it in a healthy condition.
Tips for Healthy Liver
Consistent exercise can lower liver fat and aid in the burning of triglycerides as fuel.
Toxins can harm the cells of this organ. Avoid coming into direct touch with additives, chemicals, cleaning products, aerosols, and insecticides. When using aerosols, be sure the space is well-ventilated and put on a mask. Avoid smoking.
Consume a healthy diet.
Eliminate high-calorie meals, saturated fats, refined carbohydrates (such as white bread, white rice, and ordinary pasta), and sugars from your diet. Eat cooked shellfish, never raw or undercooked. Eat fibre for a well-balanced diet; it is found in fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain bread, rice, and cereals. Eat dairy (low-fat milk and little cheese), meat (limit red meat), and fats (the “healthy” fats, which are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, such as vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, and fish). Drink a lot of water since staying hydrated is important.
keep a healthy weight.
Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), one of the liver diseases with the quickest rate of growth. Losing weight can make a significant contribution to lowering fat of this main organ.
Use alcohol sensibly.
Alcohol consumption can lead to a variety of health issues. They can harm your biggest organ and harm or kill liver cells. Find out from your doctor how much alcohol is appropriate for you. You might be told to limit your alcohol consumption or give it up altogether.
Personal hygiene products shouldn’t be shared.
For instance, razors, toothbrushes, and nail clippers may contain minute amounts of infected blood or other bodily fluids.
Get your shots.
Both hepatitis A and hepatitis B have vaccinations. Sadly, there is no vaccination available to protect against the hepatitis C virus.
sanitize your hands.
After using the restroom, after changing a diaper, and before preparing or eating food, wash your hands with soap and warm water right away.
Every drug should be taken as prescribed.
Your hepar may be affected if medications are administered improperly, such as by taking too much, the wrong kind, or by mixing medications. Even if they are not taken at the same time, never combine alcohol with other drugs or medications. Any over-the-counter medications, dietary supplements, and herbal or natural therapies you use should be disclosed to your doctor.
Ensure that your sexual activity is safe.
Your risk of contracting hepatitis B and hepatitis C increases with unprotected intercourse and sex with several partners.
