According to the CDC, from 2000 to 2018, death rates for chronic liver disease and cirrhosis increased 31%.
A scary thought, to say the least, but don’t throw in the towel just yet. Researchers have found that the vast majority of cases of liver disease could be prevented when treated early.
Here are 13 red flags that could indicate something serious…
A coated tongue is a sign that your body isn’t digesting food properly, allowing bowel bacteria and yeast to overgrow. The liver helps us digest fat by making bile. When there are problems, we aren’t able to produce enough bile for proper digestion. Cleaning up your diet will assist in getting your tongue back to its normal color.
Some professionals recommend using a liver tonic to help you feel better. If you try this treatment and the color of your tongue remains white or even yellow, then contact your doctor immediately. It could be something more serious like liver disease.
