Fatty liver disease is a condition common among alcoholics where excess fat has built up in the liver impeding the liver’s ability to function normally. This disease can lead to cirrhosis, jaundice and even liver failure if ignored. Unfortunately, there is no medication or treatment that can cure fatty liver disease. Prevention is your best hope.

We are conducting clinical trials on fatty liver disease to improve our understanding of this condition and work towards the development of an effective treatment. Our research team is looking for people in Birmingham and the surrounding area who have been diagnosed with fatty liver disease. This research will help us develop better options for people with this condition.

If you would like to take part in a clinical trial, it is crucial to understand the inclusion criteria for that study before enrolling. Why is this important? The qualification criteria will vary depending on the type of study being conducted. This means that you may not qualify for a study even if you have been diagnosed with fatty liver disease.

Are You at Risk of Developing Fatty Liver Disease?

Fatty liver disease typically does not present with visible physical symptoms and it may be hard to tell if you have it until it has done serious damage. Your liver is considered to be fatty when it reaches a fat percentage of 5% or higher. The best way to stop fatty liver disease is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

People who are alcoholics should be especially wary of this condition as alcoholism is the leading cause of fatty liver disease.You may also be at a higher risk of developing fatty liver disease if you have a family history of alcoholism or liver disease, are obese, or have diabetes or hepatitis C.

If any of these apply to you, it is important to talk with your doctor about your risk and how you can take steps to prevent liver disease from developing.
