Liver / Gallbladder

The liver is a large organ in the upper right part of your abdomen. It does a large number of jobs incuding helping digestion, storing energy, helping blood to clot and breaking down medicines and alcohol. The liver also makes bile, which is stored in the gallbladder. Bile helps your gut to digest fats. In this category you will find information on how conditions that affect the liver and gallbladder are dignosed and treated. If you have questions like "How do I get hepatitis?", "What does cirrhosis of the liver mean?" or "What do liver function tests measure?" you will find answers in our doctor-authored leaflets.
