Liver disease accounts for more than one in 10 deaths of people in their 40s according to shocking new statistics. And for a third of women who died of liver disease, alcohol was to blame.
The number of deaths from liver disease has reached an all-time high in England, rising by 25 per cent over the last decade, according to the report by the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network.
Professor Martin Lombard, national clinical director for liver disease, says the alarming report is a warning to us to make changes.
'The key drivers for increasing numbers of deaths from liver disease are all preventable, such as alcohol, obesity, hepatitis C and hepatitis B,' says Lombard. 'We must focus our efforts and tackle this problem sooner rather than later.’
The report says that while people are increasingly dying from liver disease, the major causes of death, such as heart disease, are simultaneously declining.
