Fatty liver, otherwise called hepatic steatosis, is a condition where excess fat gathers in the liver cells. It can advance to additional serious liver infections whenever left untreated.

CAUSES OF FATTY LIVER:

• Obesity and metabolic syndrome: Excess body weight, especially abdominal fat accumulation.
• Diabetes: Insulin resistance and high blood sugar levels linked to fatty liver disease.
• Alcohol consumption: Heavy, prolonged alcohol consumption can cause fatty liver disease.
• Certain medications: Corticosteroids, cancer drugs, and certain antibiotics can contribute to fatty liver.
• Rapid weight loss: Crash diets or weight-loss surgery can lead to fatty liver.

SYMPTOMS OF FATTY LIVER:

• Initial symptoms: Fatigue, weakness.
• Abdominal discomfort or pain.
• Enlarged liver (hepatomegaly).
• Jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes).
• Nausea and loss of appetite.

DIAGNOSIS OF FATTY LIVER:

• Blood tests: Detect elevated liver enzymes indicating liver damage.
• Imaging tests: Ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI visualize fat accumulation.
• Liver biopsy: Confirm diagnosis and assess condition severity with a small liver tissue sample.

TYPES OF FATTY LIVER:

• Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD): Uncaused by alcohol, linked to obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome.
• Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (AFLD): Caused by prolonged excessive alcohol consumption.

ADVERSE EFFECTS OF FATTY LIVER:

• Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): Inflammation and liver cell damage, leading to scarring and cirrhosis.
• Cirrhosis: Advanced scarring impairs liver function, increasing risk of liver failure and cancer.
• Liver cancer: Individuals with cirrhosis have higher risk of hepatocellular carcinoma.

FATTY LIVER TREATMENT?

Diet in Fatty Liver:

• Weight loss: A balanced, calorie-controlled diet can reduce liver fat accumulation.
• Limiting refined carbohydrates and sugars: Reducing processed foods and added sugars improves insulin sensitivity and reduces liver fat deposition.
• Increasing fiber intake: High-fiber foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes aid in weight management and liver health.
• Choosing healthy fats: Focus on monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from sources like olive oil, avocados, nuts, and fatty fish.
• Avoiding alcohol: Regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight are crucial. In severe cases, medication or treatments may be necessary.
