The Love your Liver campaign is a national awareness initiative by a national charity, the British Liver Trust. We each have responsibility for our own health, follow the steps below to achieve a healthier liver.
Give your liver a break, replace alcohol with a non-alcoholic alternative 3 days a week - and your liver will love you for everKeep off alcohol for
2 to 3 days in a row.
Replace that drive or bus ride with a short walk or cycle ride. Get off the bus a stop early. Walk to the station. Take the stairs not the lift. Swim or take up a sport. You'll feel better and the exercise will shift accumulated fat from your liver in a way that dieting can't! It'll give your liver a new lease of life.Take more exercise and stay fit.
Carrying too much weight or eating a diet with too much sugar and fat will affect the way your liver works. Cut down on sweets, snacks and fizzy drinks and foods that are high in fat. Replace them with more fresh fruit and vegetables, 5-7 a day if you can! Your liver will be over the moon!Cut down on sugar
Just staying off alcohol for two to three days at a time, avoiding fatty foods and taking regular exercise are great ways to Love Your Liver.

The British Liver Trust is a UK charity for adults with liver conditions. The charity provides information, support and advice to help people.
Every year, the LYL campaign takes to the road to offer the public the opportunity to attend a pop-up clinic to get their liver health assessed and tested if necessary, also to learn about ways they can improve the health of their liver.
We have now completed the Love Your Liver Roadshow 2013 which has been a great success. Thank you to all of the voluntary medical teams that supported us, we visited 8 locations in January and spoke to hundreds of people across the country.
We would love to visit more places but as we are reliant on voluntary donations and do not receive any government funding we have to stay within our limited resources. Voluntary donations are needed to fund our liver awareness work, patient support services and vital research.
Over the next few months, as part of the planning process for the LYL Roadshow 2014, we will be looking at ways that we can improve the tour, participant experience and how we reach out to new communities. If you are a medical health professional or a British Liver Trust supporter and would like to help us on the LYL Roadshow 2014 please email or call us on 01425 481320 to register your interest.
