Liver Disease Program
The costs of liver disease are staggering.
- At least one in 10 Americans, or over 30 million people in the U.S. has some form of liver disease.
- Four million Americans have hepatitis C – the so-called “silent killer” as no symptom is displayed – with more than 75% of American adults infected with hepatitis C are baby boomers.
- More than one million Americans are infected with hepatitis B.
- 20% of Americans have fatty livers which is the basis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NAFLD.
- About 21,000 Americans are diagnosed with liver cancer every year.
If you’re having liver symptoms like fatigue, weakness, weight loss, abdominal pain and swelling, or yellowing of the skin or eyes, received abnormal liver test results, or you’re a baby boomer born between the years 1946 and 1964, and would like to be tested for hepatitis C, you may want to have a consultation and testing done with Dr. Raza Hamdani of Advanced Gastroenterology.
