Manage Your Liver
Q:

I was recently diagnosed with NASH, I was told by my gastroenterologist that there is no available treatment. What can I do?

A:

Currently, there is no approved treatment for NASH. [1] As the underlying cause for the transition from simple fat buildup in the liver to NASH remain unknown, conventional medical therapies for NASH have not yet been proven to be effective. 

The recommendations medical professionals often give to people with NASH are to follow a healthy diet and do exercise. [2] Those who are overweight or obese are advised to lose weight, but this can be difficult and not every individual finds these interventions effective. 

There are things NASH patients can do other than losing weight. Apart from lifestyle changes, NASH patients should also focus on protecting their liver, reducing inflammation in the liver cells and preventing progression of the disease. In the long run, this can help to reduce the risk of cirrhosis and liver cancer.

A clinical study on PubMed suggests that YHK, an alternative therapy from Japan, has an inhibitory effect on the development of NASH; and its anti-inflammatory effect can effectively stop inflammation in the liver. [3] Other research papers also demonstrate that YHK has anti-fibrotic properties which prevent further damage to the liver such as fibrosis or cirrhosis. [4][5]

Stopping the progression of NASH is possible. But it will require putting in great effort to leading a healthy lifestyle and reducing fat and inflammation in the liver with the help of the above mentioned nutraceutical. Avoiding the use of alcohol and unnecessary medications can also decrease the risk of liver damage.

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

Therefore, by measuring the
