Welcome to Tawazun Health
Assessing your liver for equilibrium
“Those who do not find time every day for health must sacrifice a lot of time one day for illness”
Welcome to the first steps of taking control of your liver’s health!
Tawazun Health have now made it possible for you to take control of your lifestyle, by offering you direct access to a liver scan without the referral from your doctor.
Your liver plays a central role in keeping your body in equilibrium, a state of balance and harmony. Taking care of this organ is very important and a regular liver scan will help you make the right lifestyle choice.
We all associate alcohol damaging our liver, but the food we eat and the exercise we take is playing a significant part in causing Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, High cholesterol, Heart Disease, Liver Cancer and many other liver related health problems.
You will already know that most of the above conditions have been strongly associated with people developing severe COVID-19 and knowing the condition of your liver will offer you the opportunity to see if you have increased risks of these. NAFLD is treatable and curable which means many of the rest are too but only if you know.
We use the latest in liver scan technology called FibroScan®. Your liver scan is non-invasive and only takes 5 -15 mins of your time. Unfortunately, not everyone or even all active, healthy eating adults and children have a healthy liver and they may not know their condition without the referral from a doctor. That is why Tawazun Health is providing a service for everyone, so you can check the health of your liver at any time.
Regular screening of your liver can keep your lifestyle in balance and allow you to choose the way you wish to live.
We provide a service currently for those aged 16 years and above and you will find on our Lifestyle Booking page the affordable costs for both junior and adults.
We understand to change your lifestyle and health can be a challenge particularly in these most challenging of times, so you will find a platinum liver scan package that incorporates a dietitian to help you focus and achieve your goals.
A Liver Scan Resolution post COVID-19 for 2020
If you feel you have during the COVID-19 lockdown exercised, eaten less healthy options and indulged in alcohol more regularly – your liver may now be showing the strain. This can increase the risks of developing a level of damage which may be a risk to you if you become infected.
If you have Type 2 diabetes , hypertension, cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol and are concerned about your liver health.
As lockdown eases and we look to reopen our clinics the real resolution should be to have your liver scanned to check your liver is in tip top condition and make a healthier lifestyle choice for the future.

Echosens, manufacturer of FibroScan® , is the world’s #1 provider of non-invasive medical devices dedicated to assessment of chronic liver disease.
Echosens significantly changed the practice of liver diagnosis with FibroScan®, the unique device using patented and validated VCTE™ for liver stiffness assessment, and CAP™ for steatosis quantification.
FibroScan® device is recognized worldwide as the reference for non-invasive liver diagnosis with more than 2,000 medical publications and 40 guidelines recommendations.
FibroScan® is a device being used increasingly throughout both the National Health Service and Private settings.
It is a time-efficient, non-invasive, painless and patient-friendly assessment where mechanical shear waves are sent through the liver; an ultrasound transducer calculates the velocity of the wave and converts this to a liver stiffness measurement (LSM) in KPa. The addition of the controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) correlates a fat calculation via the ultrasound waves.
When performed by a suitably qualified and experienced individual, immediate results are available to the physician and patient.
Tawazun health is the market leader in providing and delivering FibroScan® services wherever needed*, giving physicians the advantage of this enhanced real-time liver assessment with immediate information available to advise the patients.
With multiple options from small bespoke individual FibroScan® clinics to regular scheduled clinics all at your location*.
*Subject to minimum room requirements to perform FibroScan®
We are aware of the rise in high liver fat and cardio-metabolic symptoms in obese children and teenagers and therefore we are addressing this by offering education sessions. Under our Tawazun Health Charities we are working closely with the British Liver Trust and will be offering our support to many other adult and children charities in 2020.
For the future we will actively be supporting work into finding cures for liver, metabolic and cardiac diseases under our Research programme.
