Not likely: Ensure is a processed food with a lot of sugar. It can be a help for debilitated older persons but a 29 year old with liver damage would do much better with eating lots of fresh vegetables and colorful fruits in 6 equal healthy meals with small quantities of high quality protein and olive oil. Persons with depression may need vit d 3 supplements. Exercise through the day . Pretend jump roping.
