Second, if its hormonal regulation of carbohydrate digestion is thrown off, then one might be at risk for developing diabetes.

The liver has many diverse functions within your body, most of which can only be performed by the liver. This organ houses energy stores, detoxifies ingested foods, and filters toxins that find their way into your blood stream. Take good care of this important organ by avoiding excessive amounts of alcohol and acetaminophen.
