Liver health needs special attention during the early stages or the initial phase of liver disease. The liver is the less complaining organ in the body and refuses to show up any symptoms until it is damaged by 60%.

Let’s not forget some important facts that we are regularly eating throughout the day with three important meals - breakfast, lunch, and dinner which are very important for our body. The foods like carbs, proteins, and fats are regularly metabolized by the liver. Also, people who are taking long-term medications for diabetes and high blood pressure need special attention for liver functioning as all the medications get metabolized by the liver. Continuously working round the clock without any break, the liver needs regular screening and health checkups. The liver is the organ that helps in not only the processing of nutrients but also the storage of glucose or nutrients. During the time of fasting at night when we are sleeping, the glycogen stores in the liver get used up for the healthy functioning of the body.
