30 Jan Dry January – good time for a liver scan?
Dry January has become a popular health trend, with many of us abstaining from alcohol for the entire month to give our livers a bit of a break.
It is also a great time to have a liver ultrasound scan, as doing it during or after Dry January can be a good idea for several reasons:
It’s important to note that the decision to have a liver scan should be based on individual health concerns, symptoms, and recommendations from healthcare professionals- your GP or your specialist Doctor. If you have specific liver-related issues or concerns, it’s advisable to consult with your healthcare specialist. They can provide guidance on whether a liver scan is necessary, the optimal timing for the test, and how lifestyle factors, including alcohol consumption, may influence the results.
We at Private Ultrasound clinic do not need a referral letter from your GP or specialist in order to provide an ultrasound scan and will happily book your appointment for when you need to be seen, even if it is the same-day appointment.
Our ultrasound experts, Doctors and Consultant Radiologists, will take your medical history into consideration, any specific symptoms you might be experiencing and will check your liver thoroughly, providing explanation and discussing the findings with you.
You will receive an instant medical report and ultrasound images, which you can then share with your healthcare provider, if needed.
