Save the date! Dr. Galati's first Town Hall Meeting, which is being called the "Wake-Up Call, will take place at Houston's Health Museum, on Thursday, November 5, 2015, starting at 6:00 p.m.

Sponsored by Your Health First Education, the mission of this event is to provide the lay public with the tools necessary to engage themselves, and those closest to them, in a discussion of health and wellness. So many complications of various diseases could be prevented, or diagnosed earlier, reducing complications, and far better outcomes.

Obesity and Fatty Liver Disease

Obesity, and all of its related complications, is more serious than most adults in America believe. More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and certain types of cancer, are some of the leading causes of preventable death. We are seeing an increase in the number of young children and adolescents developing obesity, and all of the related complications.

The cost of obesity is staggering, with annual medical cost of obesity exceeding $147 billion in 2008 U.S. dollars. The medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.

Dr. Galati and the Liver Specialists of Texas team are dedicated to evaluate, treat, and manage all aspects of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD and NASH), including the complication of cirrhosis and liver failure. Developing a customized plan of care for each patient they see is their objective.
