How can I reverse fatty liver?

How can I reverse fatty liver?
A:

Being one of the most common and also the earliest type of non-alcoholic liver disease (NAFLD), fatty liver disease refers to the condition where more than 5 to 10 per cent of the liver is fat. According to the American Liver Foundation, between 30 and 40 per cent of adults in the U.S. suffer from NAFLD.

While currently there is no treatment for fatty liver disease, it is actually a condition that is reversible. Depending on the severity and how much is done to fix the situation, fatty liver can normally be reversed within the period from 3-6 months to 2 years.

 

Ways to reverse fatty liver

Since too much fat in the liver contributes to inflammation, the key to managing fatty liver disease is to reduce body weight (particularly the excess abdominal fat) as well as the liver inflammation level.

  • Old-but-gold tip - eat a balanced diet and engage in regular exercise:

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, losing 5% of body weight can reduce the liver fat content by up to 30%. As for reducing the risk of liver inflammation and fibrosis, losing 10% of weight is needed. Research also indicates that combining aerobic exercise and strength training together can deliver a better weight loss outcome.

Eating a balanced diet that includes fewer carbs and more unsaturated fats also helps reverse fatty liver. In recent research, it is shown that daily consumption of vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, can reduce oxidative stress in the liver, preventing serious liver problems from developing.

  • Limit alcohol intake if you don’t want more fat in your liver:

Alcohol is one of the major factors that contribute to the deposit of fat in the liver. Consuming more than 60g of alcohol daily can already cause fatty liver to develop. Limiting, or even eliminating, the consumption of alcohol plays a huge part in reversing fatty liver disease.

  • Manage blood glucose level, even if you don’t have diabetes:

People who are diabetic often have a higher risk of developing fatty liver disease because of their high blood glucose level. The key to managing the level is to improve insulin sensitivity since insulin resistance is one of the major causes of NAFLD. Being sensitive to insulin is critically important in terms of preventing fat build-up in the liver and keeping blood sugar at a normal level.

  • Get enough rest, at the right time:

Our liver works around the circadian cycle, meaning that it does specific jobs to maintain our overall health at different time of the day. Sleep deprivation and sleeping irregular hours over a course of time will have negative impacts on the liver’s functions, disrupting its normal routine of work. So do try to go to bed earlier and make sure you stick to the same schedule every day.

 

As fatty liver disease is an early stage of NAFLD, it is one of the easiest to manage. If it is not monitored well, it will progress to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a serious form of NAFLD. Based on the data from American Liver Foundation, NASH will become the most frequent cause for liver transplant in the U.S. by 2030. It is necessary to protect your liver from developing more serious disease and damage. Talk to us for more liver protection tips at support@yhktherapy.com

Obesity is a major health issue around the world, and it is one of the risk factors that is mostly associated with liver problems. People with obesity (BMI over 25) are often encouraged to pay attention to their ALT level, since ALT is often considered as the first indicator when it comes to liver diseases. But surprisingly, research shows that people with a normal BMI level but have regional fat accumulation, most commonly in the abdominal area, are more likely to have liver disease comparin

For years we have known that there is a strong link between obesity and liver cancer, and it is possibly due to the high fat content in the body. And because of this, people with obesity are often considered at risk for liver cancer. A recent research conducted by Monash University and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Australia confirms that obese people are at risk for liver cancer, but based on an entirely different reason.   The new finding

Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The loss of liver cells turns into scar tissue which prevents the liver working normally, reducing or in some cases, completely losing liver function.

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is a type of enzyme found in liver cells. When the liver cells are functioning normally, the ALT enzymes should be contained within the liver cells.    You can imagine each liver cells as a balloon, and the ALT enzymes are the air inside the balloon. When the balloon is damaged, the air will be released. And when the liver cells is damaged, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, therefore we are able to find out the l

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.   What does high ALT indicate? ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up.

Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
