Chandigarh: “Living with a sick liver is practically impossible as it regulates immunity, digestion, and metabolism. We must maintain the liver's health. It is the body's largest solid organ responsible for removing toxins from the blood, regulating blood sugar levels, and maintaining blood flow throughout the body,”
Speaking during an awareness session on the eve of World Liver Day on Thursday Dr. Atul Sachdev, senior director gastroenterology at Max Hospital, Mohali said that a sick liver can cause serious fatal diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.
