Liver health
Liver disease accounts for 2 million deaths annually and is responsible for 1 out of every 25 deaths worldwide. 
Despite the global burden of liver disease and the
vital functions of the liver, general knowledge about liver health is sub-optimal.
Chronic liver disease is increasing dramatically, but it
can be reversed if diagnosed early and correctly monitored and treated.

About the Liver

The liver is a vital organ. It is the largest internal organ of the body and performs more than 500 functions, including detoxification, energy production, and synthesis of vital proteins


There are many causes of chronic liver disease

Fatty liver (also known as NASH or MASH)

Alcohol-related liver disease

Viral hepatitis (e.g., hepatitis B & C) 

Autoimmune liver diseases (e.g., PBC, PSC, autoimmune hepatitis)

Drugs and toxins


Despite its high prevalence, liver disease is often silent & is under-diagnosed

Most chronic liver diseases are silent and can progress to cirrhosis or liver cancer without causing any symptoms.

Cirrhosis is the end-stage of chronic liver disease and is generally irreversible

once evidence of liver failure has occurred. The only curative treatment option

for decompensated cirrhosis is liver transplantation.

However, damage to the liver caused by chronic liver diseases can often be reversed

with early diagnosis and treatment. 

FibroScan® enables the comprehensive management of liver health and is used for all causes of chronic liver disease
