Weight loss is a crucial part in fatty liver treatment. Losing body weight helped many patients to reverse a non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH / NAFLD) fatty liver disease.
Why weight loss is important in Fatty Liver
The answer to this question is that when a body has excessive amounts of fat, the liver needs to work harder.
And the more the liver needs to work harder, there is an increased chance of inflammation of the liver, that in many cases leads to a fatty liver.
The fatty tissues around the liver cause it to work less efficiently, and some of its daily routine is damaged.
When this happens, it releases excessive liver enzymes, such as ALT or AST (more details about liver enzymes can be found in the liver function blood tests article).
Therefor, the more fat you lose following a weight loss, your liver will simply work better, and will release decreased amounts of ALT, and hopefully normal amount of the enzyme will flow into your blood stream.
In addition, if you’re serious about weight loss, there is one more method that worked for most of my own patients with fatty liver. I highly recommend using the Fatty Liver Diet Guide written by Dorothy Spencer BSN, RN. It’s an alternative and proven method to cure a fatty liver by natural means. Click here to learn more.
