A diet that is too fatty or too sugary can have harmful effects on our liver. Sugar is not always where we expect it to be. Géraldine Mayr and Anne Orenstein discuss liver health with Dr. Gabriel Perlemuter, a gastroenterologist and hepatologist. In France, 200,000 people are affected by non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This is also known as fatty liver disease or soda disease to the general public. In simple terms, it is an accumulation of fat in the liver that causes inflammation and can degenerate. The number of cases of NASH has skyrocketed in the last 30 years and now affects 20% of the population. The best solution to overcome this is a healthy lifestyle.

To help us adopt a healthier diet, Géraldine Mayr and Anne Orenstein interview Dr. Gabriel Perlemuter, a gastroenterologist and hepatologist, on “Hello Doctor.” They also feature the testimony of Guillaume, who underwent a liver transplant after liver fibrosis.
