Digestive and liver conditions

The liver performs many complex functions, such as fighting illness, distributing nutrients to your body, and controlling cholesterol. According to the American Liver Foundation there are over 100 types of liver disease including types of Hepatitis, Cirrhosis, and Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Whatever type of liver problem you or your loved one may have there are often changes you can make to help manage things better. Connecting with others can help you understand how to do this. Below you’ll find user experiences grouped by disease as well as communities run by expert nonprofits with a focus on particular kinds of liver disorders.
