Fatty Liver Treatment – Fatty Liver Caused by This Everyday Mineral (cut it out)
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is on a steep rise, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
Which makes it clear it’s caused by something we’re doing differently now than what was done 20-30 years ago.
A new study in the Journal of Clinical Medicine now reveals that this something is a common mineral that most people consume on a daily basis.
A team from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands analyzed previously collected data of 6,132 subjects.
Firstly, they looked at results of sodium urine tests that were carried out periodically for 48 hours over two consecutive 24-hour periods. From this, they were able to analyze the subject’s sodium intake.
They also had higher amounts of sodium in their urine at 163.63 Mmol (millimoles) per 24 hours versus the 136.76 Mmol in people whose fatty liver index scores were below 60.
And people with non-alcoholic liver disease were 54 percent more likely to be high sodium consumers compared to those with healthy livers.
So why do people who consume a lot of sodium have this fatty liver risk?
Two words – insulin resistance!
Sodium is hard to avoid these days, and it exists in so many manufactured foods to preserve shelf life. Therefore, it’s best to stick to fresh organic foods and avoid foods such as canned items, deli meats, bottled sauces, and pre-prepared meals.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults consume 1.5 grams of salt per day. Very active athletes or outdoor workers who lose a lot of salt through sweat can consume more.
Fatty Liver Treatment – Cutting out salt helps, but it’s not enough to reverse NAFLD; to do so, you need to get to the root cause of the problem, which I will explain here…
Fatty Liver Treatment – Fatty Liver Causes This Fatal (Non-Liver) Disease
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) will very likely lead to a liver failure. That’s obvious.
But there is another condition that at first glance has nothing to do with NAFLD. And this condition might be even more dangerous.
And a new study published in The Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology reveals that those suffering NAFLD are 88% more likely to be hit by this surprising disease.
Scientists collected medical data of 111,492 adult patients who visited the Samsung Medical Center in Korea between 2003 and 2013. They were all above 40 years old and those with previous heart attacks, records of cardiovascular disease, a history of liver cirrhosis, previous hepatitis B or C, cancer, or high alcohol intake were excluded from the study.
All the patient’s necessary information was collected, including health history, demographic characteristics, smoking status, alcohol consumption, medical characteristics and medication use.
Every patient was given an abdominal ultrasound on the first visit and during follow-ups to check liver composition.
It was found that people with NAFLD were more likely to suffer heart attacks during the follow-up period.
Compared to those without NAFLD, those with low NAFLD had an increased risk of 70 percent and those with intermediate-to-high NAFLD an increased risk of 88 percent.
This means that you don’t have to have severe NAFLD for your heart attack risk to be raised. Moderate cases are risky too.
Fatty Liver Treatment – Psoriasis and Liver Failure Connection Discovered
Psoriasis is a skin disease (or so most people think).
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a liver disease (or so most people think).
So how can a new study presented at the 28th Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology in Madrid prove that one leads to the other with possibly fatal consequences?
The Spanish scientists recruited 64 male subjects, all with severe psoriasis and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
NAFLD occurs when fat builds up in your liver. Your liver is a fatty organ anyway, but if more than 10 percent of your liver is fat, usually caused by overeating (if not caused by alcohol) then you have NAFLD.
The American Liver Foundation estimates that around a third of Americans have NAFLD, including 20 percent of children.
The researchers wanted to know whether the severity of psoriasis and the severity of NDFLD were related.
Liver stiffness indicates that the liver contains a lot of scar tissue that can no longer function as liver tissue. It is the stage on the way to liver failure, depending on what percentage of the liver is affected.
So how can a skin disease and a liver disease be so connected?
