Liver Health Check Package in Vizag
The liver is the vital organ present in your body. The liver filters the blood which comes from the digestive tract and transports the filtered blood to the remaining parts of the body. The liver also makes proteins which are used for blood clotting and also albumin, an important protein in blood serum which transports fatty acids and steroids. It also absorbs and metabolizes bilirubin. Liver stores carbohydrates which can be broken down into glucose and later used as energy when needed. It also filters blood from waste products, including alcohol and other drugs. The liver also stores vitamin A, D, E, K, and B12.
