High ALT Level – Your liver is sending help!
The liver is one of the five vital organs in our body, responsible for over 500 bodily functions. When it is underperforming or not in its best shape, ALT level is the most useful indication to tell how well it is functioning.
What is ALT level? What causes it to rise?
Alanine Transaminase, often abbreviated as ALT, is an enzyme that is largely concentrated in the liver. In healthy individuals, ALT enzymes are found mainly inside liver cells, as they are used to break down food to energy.
When inflammation takes place in the liver or when the liver is injured, ALT will be released to the bloodstream, causing serum ALT to rise.
There are many different factors that could contribute to liver inflammation, but alcohol, virus, and obesity are the most common causes.
Are there any symptoms?
Unlike inflammation in other parts of the body, which would usually swell and hurt, liver inflammation does not cause any pain or discomfort, at least in the beginning. It’s because the liver does not contain any nerve fibres that can sense pain. That’s why most people often do not notice it until the problem advances, or when they have a high ALT level on their blood test report.
What happens if high ALT level is not managed?
Liver inflammation is often the root cause of the problem of high ALT. When it is not addressed in time, liver inflammation will persist. Over time, the liver’s regeneration ability cannot cope with the persistent inflammation, and that is when scar tissue forms.
Scar tissues are liver cells that have lost its ability to regenerate, leading to a decrease of liver function and blood supply to the liver. When this happens over a long period of time, it can progress to advanced liver problems.
How can we effectively control ALT level?
Generally speaking, tackling the underlying cause of high ALT level should help a great deal to combat hepatic inflammation. However, if in the case where treating the cause is not possible, we can focus on preventing inflammation in the liver.
According to clinical reports and research data, YHK Therapy is an effective solution to prevent liver inflammation and to normalise ALT level. One of its research published in the medical journal Digestive Diseases and Sciences discovered that after using YHK for 2 months, liver patients with high ALT were able to normalise their level without experiencing any side effects. And other research also shows that YHK contains anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic, and anti-oxidative properties, which have over 25 years of proven history in reducing inflammation in the liver and recover liver health.
What other research does YHK have?
With around 30 research and clinical studies published and documented in medical journals, YHK is well studied and internationally recognized. The research of YHK covers a wide range of liver-related issues, and are documented in PubMed research database (US National Library of Medicine): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=YHK+marotta
