Walking and Strength Exercises Cut the Risk of Death from Liver Disease
Recent research, presented at Digestive Disease Week 2019, finds that various types of physical activity including walking and strength exercises are connected to the reduced risk of dying from cirrhosis.
For the study, the researchers prospectively followed 68,449 women from the Nurses' Health Study and 48,748 men from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. None of them had liver disease diagnosis at baseline.
Participants of the study provided data on physical activity, which included type and intensity, every two years from 1986 through 2012. These data allowed researchers to examine the link between physical activity and cirrhosis-associated death.
Lead researcher of the study Tracey Simon, MD and instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, says: “Our findings show that both walking and strength training contribute to substantial reductions in risk of cirrhosis-related death, which is significant because we know very little about modifiable risk factors.”
