The liver is a key player in our body’s digestive system. Everything we consume, including medicine, passes through it. It acts as our body’s filter to clear out toxins, however, if the liver is worked too hard – with heavy drinking, chronic viral infections or eating an unhealthy diet for too long – it can develop its own health problems.
How can we keep our liver, the gatekeeper to good health, healthy and do its job?
In this conversation with two doctors from Sunway Medical Centre, insights will be shared on how significant the liver is to the digestive system.
Dr. Chung and Dr. Teoh talk about some of the diseases that are related to the liver, how does one detect a liver problem, symptoms that people can watch out for and most importantly how can we take care of our liver.
Guests: Dr Chung Yun Chien, Consultant Hepatologist & Gastroenterologist, Sunway Medical Centre and Dr Teoh Wei Leng, Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist, Sunway Medical Centre
Hosts: Jason Dasey and Brian Fernandez
