Watch: Drug-Induced Liver Injury

Drug-Induced Liver Injury

As summer heats up, so do I. Now, where did I put that trashy romance novel? You too?

Clinical Liver Disease Special Summer Issue: Drug-Induced Liver Injury

Clinical Liver Disease (CLD) is a great starting point for anyone interested in learning more about hepatitis C and liver disease. The journal is a product of the AASLD and published every two months. Topics in the July issue include; liver injury caused by dietary supplements, acetaminophen overdose, and drug-induced liver injury in Chinese herbal medicine, to name a few.

The reader will find articles with full-text audio, and other interactive content for a pleasant viewing and listening experience.

Although, unlike my novel "Valley Of Love Under The Bridge To Nowhere" the journal is void of any real romance, no heart-pounding sizzle or fantasy, only facts, not even a swoon.

I did however have a romantic moment with Dr. Maddukuri, after viewing his video with Dr. Bonkovsky. The good doctors summarize their May 2014 publication; Herbal and dietary supplement hepatotoxicity.

After finishing the video, I was rather surprised at myself. In the end, a very distinguished Dr. Bonkovsky won my heart, I was moved when he inquired about liver injury, and green tea extracts. Its the little things that matter.

Tonight, while drinking iced coffee, and reading Fifty Shades of Grey, I will let myself fondly remember Dr. Bonkovsky.

Herbal and dietary supplements (HDS) include vitamins, minerals, herbs or other plant materials, and some can cause hepatotoxicity. HDS hepatotoxicity has risen almost threefold over the past decade, read more to learn what to look for....
