Liver Disease Crisis

Shockingly, liver disease is the biggest cause of death in those aged between 35-49 years old.

Liver disease is on the rise. Since 1970, deaths due to liver disease have increased by 400%.  Every day, over 40 people die from liver disease in the UK. This is in stark contrast to other major killer diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, in which the number of deaths have either remained stable or decreased.

 

 

  • Liver disease is the third leading cause of premature death in the UK
  • 90% of liver disease is preventable
  • Three quarters of people are currently diagnosed at a late stage when it is too late for lifestyle changes or intervention
