Don’t ignore the symptoms that are perceived as being OK to have, such as bloating, nausea, heartburn, and difficulty swallowing. Like all serious conditions, early intervention is the key to long-term survival. Making a return visit is Dr. Sudha Kodali, answering some additional questions about liver cancer from her October appearance on the program. Check out that podcast here. Here again, it's the awareness of our own personal risk factors, and symptoms that we need to be familiar with. Lastly, some exciting new research out of Sweden is indicating that exercise increases the function of the CD8+ white blood cells in fighting different types of cancer. Yet another reason to get up, dust off your sneakers, and get moving.Websites to remember:Medical Practice:Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site:Eating Yourself SickFacebook:Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube:YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion.You can message me here.You can reach Dr. Galati and his practice,LIVER SPECIALISTS OF TEXAS, by calling 713-794-0700.

#LiverCancer Expert Discussion

Season 3, Ep. 9
Each year, approximately 43,000 new cases of #livercancer are diagnosed, and approximately 31,000 people will die. Liver cancer rates have tripled since 1980, most likely due to increased rates of #hepatitisC, #fattyliver, and #hepatitisB. This week on Dr. Galati‘s weekly radio program, Your Health First, he interviewed Dr. Sudha Kodali, a partner of his at Houston Methodist Hospital. They discussed the underlying risk factors for liver cancer, the need to know your liver test results, and not ignore subtle abnormalities of you are liver chemistries. One of the growing public health concerns that we have been speaking about for years is related to the global obesity epidemic which resulted in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a leading cause of liver cancer. Left untreated, liver cancer is universally fatal. Being aware of your risk factors, and getting early intervention, can lead to an excellent outcome.Websites to remember:Medical Practice:Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site:Eating Yourself SickFacebook:Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube:YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion.You can message me here.You can reach Dr. Galati and his practice,LIVER SPECIALISTS OF TEXAS, by calling 713-794-0700.

Why am I Constipated?

Season 3, Ep. 7
This week I have two very special guests joining me.The first is Michael Garfield, who is a permanent fixture on the Houston radio landscape. Michael and his weekly program, the High-Tech Texan, airs every Saturday morning between 11:00 and 1:00 PM on 950 KPRC. Michael is an expert on everything technology related, and he is going to share his insight and thoughts on technology issues that we're facing as the Covid pandemic persists. With everyone working from home, and taking advantage of online exercise classes, online cooking, and substituting the online movie experience for the closed mega theater, I am wondering if this is putting a significant crunch on the internet bandwidth we all need. Listen along and see what the High-Tech Texan has to say!The next topic will be delving into is constipation. For many, this is just an embarrassing conversation to have, or the butt of a joke. The reality is, Constipation is a significant problem that many people face. This is not just a condition of old people, but I see in my own practice an unusually high number of people in their early 20s with constipation causing significant problems for them. While it's true that Constipation becomes more problematic as we age, the global problem of obesity and its low fiber, low nutrition foods that many are eating, is a driving force when we talk about constipation. The human body was not meant to eat processed foods.A worlds expert on constipation, all things digestive, is my good friend and colleague Dr. Eamonn Quigley. He'll be sharing his expert knowledge on Constipation and how we need to think about it.Websites to remember:Medical Practice:Liver Specialists of TexasBook Site:Eating Yourself SickFacebook:Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube:YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion.You can message me here.Make sure you subscribe to all of the podcast episodes, rate them, send us feedback, and share them with your community.Available on:SPOTIFYTUNEINAPPLE PODCASTPOCKET CASTSOVERCASTACASTIHEART RADIO PODCASTGOOGLE PODCASTSTITCHERYOUTUBE

#FattyLiver

Season 3, Ep. 6
Fatty Liver Disease, also known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease or #NASH, is a leading cause of chronic liver disease, #cirrhosis, and liver cancer in the United States. Fatty liver develops in individuals who have a condition called "metabolic syndrome". Metabolic syndrome includes truncal obesity (belly fat), type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and elevated cholesterol or triglycerides. Fatty liver disease is a leading cause of liver failure that requires liver transplantation. The global obesity epidemic that we are facing is the single most important driving force behind the cases of fatty liver disease we see. An astounding 100 million people have fatty liver disease in the US. If left unaddressed, fatty liver disease has the potential to cause significant disability and mortality. It’s been shown that individuals with fatty liver disease have an increased "all cause mortality", which in simple terms meaning you’re going to die earlier. Another tragic part of the fatty liver disease story is that our children are being affected by this, and are developing chronic liver disease, diabetes, and heart disease decades earlier. In my opinion, this is our number one public health threat, and unfortunately many in the medical community and politics have simply ignored it. In this podcast, you’ll hear from Dr. Eric Lawitz, a liver expert and renowned researcher in the area fatty liver disease. Helen Yuan, RD will be joining us discussing the nutritional strategies to begin turning the tide on this devastating disease.Websites to remember:Medical Practice:Liver Specialists of TexasBook Site:Eating Yourself SickFacebook:Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube: YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion.You can message me here.Make sure you subscribe to all of the podcast episodes, rate them, send us feedback, and share them with your community.Available on:SPOTIFYTUNEINAPPLE PODCASTPOCKET CASTSOVERCASTACASTIHEART RADIO PODCASTGOOGLE PODCASTSTITCHERYOUTUBE#fattyliver #nonalcoholicfattyliver #livertransplant #livercancer #type2diabetes #obesity #childhoodobesity #hepatitis #liverspecialist #clinicalresearch
