The liver is an organ that that is essential to life. Everything that is eaten, inhaled, absorbed through the skin and bloodstream is processed through the liver. It helps fight infections, cleans blood, and helps digest food, converting & storing it for energy. It can be damaged over time by an unhealthy, high fat diet, exposure to viruses, chemicals and toxins as well as abuse of alcohol and drugs and unsafe sexual practices.
Liver damage is usually a gradual process and the damage can be extensive before any symptoms appear. It is estimated that more than 30 million people in the US have liver disease - that equates to 1 in 10. Many forms of liver disease are preventable, and many more can be treated effectively if detected early. Liver diseases include Hepatitis B & C, fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.
Personalabs is a general health and wellness online testing service. STD testing is available at JustGetTested.
