Fatty Liver Disease – Is This Silent, Life Threatening Epidemic on Your Radar?
What if you could impact liver health and keep some plan members / employees from progressing to more serious, life altering, expensive liver disease; like liver cirrhosis and ultimately liver cancer, failure or a liver transplant? Most people are not aware of fatty liver disease until they are told that they have this potentially deadly, life-sapping condition. Even once diagnosed, people often don’t know how to address the situation and reduce their risk. APH is taking a proactive stance in broadcasting the prevalence and risks of fatty liver disease, which impacts at least a quarter of our population, and can be prevented or slowed by addressing sedentary lifestyles and poor eating habits, and encouraging those impacted to work with their healthcare provider and nurse health coach / nurse navigator to manage health risks and chronic disease conditions.
