Liver Health in the Modern World: Essential Advice for Every Client (1 CPEU/CEU)
Liver Health in the Modern World: Essential Advice for Every Client (1 CPEU/CEU)


(On-demand Webinar.) The incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is skyrocketing. Modern-day living is stressful on liver health, and requires an updated understanding of how the liver's detoxification processes can be overwhelmed and what the RD in practice can do to help clients maximize their liver health. Co-morbidities like diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity play a key role in development and worsening of liver disease.

Nutrition and lifestyle considerations are of paramount importance in maintaining liver health, and helping to reverse liver disease! Join us for a webinar with Cleveland Clinic dietitian and liver expert Kristin Kirkpatrick, MS, RD, LD, author of Skinny Liver, to learn more about this fascinating and cutting-edge topic.

Here are the learning objectives:
At the conclusion of this webinar, the learner will be able to:
1. List three reasons why NAFLD is increasing in incidence.
2. Describe the interplay between diabetes, obesity and fatty liver.
3. Describe the phases the liver uses to detoxify harmful substances.
4. List two modern-day environmental reasons the liver's detoxification systems can become overwhelmed.
5. List three specific, practical recommendations you could give a client to help him/her
consume a diet to maximize liver health.
