    Exercise and Liver Disease part 1
    Melissa Palmer, MD posted:
    Regular exercise is an important component in the fight against liver disease. This isn't
    something that can be found in any medical textbook or that is taught in medical school
    classrooms. This may explain why most liver doctors don't realize how important
    exercise can be to maintaining their patients' health. But I've seen the benefits over and
    over again in my practice. People who are in good shape and who exercise on a regular
    basis not only feel better, but often respond more positively to medical treatment. People
    do not have to do a lot of exercise in order to reap its benefits. Nor does it make sense to
    overdo it. The main thing is simply to get going. Regular exercise will increase energy
    levels, decrease stress on the liver, and, in many cases, even delay the onset of certain
    complications associated with liver disease. For people with liver disease, it is crucial to
    consult with a doctor before beginning any type of exercise program.
