Love Your Liver Q&A Video With Dr Hilary Jones: Part 1

In January, HealthExpress were delighted to welcome Dr Hilary Jones for a live Q&A about liver health. The Q&A was hosted on our blog and coincided with a month long campaign by the British Liver Trust entitled 'Love Your Liver'.

We received a number of questions on a variety of liver-related topics. In this video, Dr Hilary addresses the following question –

Thanks for all your questions on liver health. We have plenty more videos to come in this series, so keep an eye on our blog and social channels to see if yours is featured.
