Reduces the risk of cirrhosis
Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver and increases the risk of liver cancer. To reduce your risk of cirrhosis, you can follow these tips:
- If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. If you decide to drink alcohol, limit the amount. For women, this means no more than one drink a day. For men, the limit is no more than two drinks a day.
- Maintain a healthy weight. If your current weight is healthy, eat a balanced diet and exercise most days of the week to maintain it. If you need to lose weight, reduce the number of calories you consume per day and increase the amount of physical activity. Aim to lose weight slowly, 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilogram) per week.
