What’s in a Diet for Liver Patients?
I have been a liver patient for quite some time, but I was only diagnosed recently since during the past years,
no symptoms like nausea and abdominal pain really showed that I had fatty liver disease. My nurse already suggested
that I should engage more in physical activities and focus on a diet especially for liver patients.

included in the book.
I felt much better after a while and when my lab results came out, they showed positive improvements. I think
that it must have been the special diet for liver patients that I followed.
