Storyboard Text

  • The condition you're experiencing is known as toxic hepatitis. It's an inflammation of your liver in reaction to certain substances to which you're exposed. As you see, toxic hepatitis can be caused by alcohol, chemicals, drugs or nutritional supplements.
  • Oh nooooo... What do I do? I destroyed my own liver with my unhealthy lifestyle.
  • Don't worry! We'll do something about it.
  • We will have your liver checked. You will be undergoing several liver function tests to assess the functionality of your liver. And I will refer you for an ultrasound so that we can see your liver's condition...
  • ...and if ever we find out that your liver is in a severe, life-threatening condition... we'll have to consider an urgent liver transplantation, dear.
  • For now, listen to me. You need to abstain from drinking alcohol in order to prevent from further damaging your poor liver.
  • Limit medications. Take prescription and nonprescription drugs only when absolutely necessary. And most importantly, don't mix alcohol and drugs. Alcohol and medications are a bad combination... especially acetaminophen.
  • Yes, doctor. I will. I'll abstain from alcohol and medications from now on
  • The liver normally removes and breaks down most drugs and chemicals from your bloodstream. Breaking down toxins creates byproducts that can damage the liver. Although the liver has a great capacity for regeneration, constant exposure to toxic substances can cause serious, sometimes irreversible harm. REMEMBER: WE ONLY HAVE ONE LIVER, SO WE BETTER TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT!
