Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
why do you need a liver detox.
your liver detoxes your body and detoxes itself as well.
do you have a history of heavy alcohol use?
why do you think your liver is sick?
avoid drinking alcohol now
drink more water and eat healthy foods and vegetables.
get more sleep and exercise during the day.
these are the best methods for your liver and body to recover
take a multivitamin a day as well.
let me know if you have other questions.
they are probably fine and safe
but are unproven and most likely don't do anything to help your liver.
they may contain herbals such as milk thistle and other herbs or supplements.
but these are unproven supplements.
you don't know the status of your liver
you haven't seen your doctor for blood tests or liver evaluation.
you have some guilt about how much you consumed over holiday.
the liver is a strong organ and can handle a lot
if you are worried about your liver, you should see your doctor and get blood test and ultrasound scans of your liver to see how your liver is doing.
taking over the counter detox products is not the answer.
