Thousands of people are at risk of liver disease but do not know it because the symptoms are not obvious–over 75% of people with liver disease are first diagnosed in hospital at an advanced stage.

Love Your Liver aims to encourage people to take Three Simple Steps to good liver health:

  • 1. To reduce alcohol consumption
  • 2. Reduce fatty and sugary food and drink
  • 3. And reduce the risk of contracting viral hepatitis

These are the three main risk factors for preventable liver damage, which causes 90% of liver disease. The Roadshow offers free screening and scanning. You can do the screener before the event and bring your results: www.britishlivertrust.org.uk/screener.

If the screeners flags any concerns, you’ll then be offered a free liver scan.

A liver scan is a pain-free and quick non-invasive scan, similar to an ultrasound, called elastography. It measures the stiffness of your liver. The more stiffness it finds, the more fibrosis (scarring) there may be.

These scans are provided by specialist nurses and consultants who will provide confidential consultations on the results.

Outside the unit, British Liver Trust members of staff provide advice and free liver publications.

All events take place between 10am and 4pm and are first come first served.
