Nutrition can serve as an essential part of the care package for patients with liver dysfunction.
Liver diseases, such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) respond well to dietary interventions and weight loss strategies. This reversible disease often occurs in conjunction with other metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and cardiovascular issues. When a patient with NAFLD has practical instructions on ways to bring more health to their diet and lifestyle, better disease management is experienced. By coming up with meal plans, brands, cooking tips and grocery lists, patients with liver issues can still enjoy the pleasures of dining out with friends or in with family.
Patients are given a full hour visit with a knowledgeable and compassionate dietitian so patients feel supported and educated by the time they leave the nutrition session.
