Treatment Options for Fatty Liver Disease

12:00 AM - September 06, 2015 by Steve Wanschers

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is considered a precursor for three distinct liver conditions: non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis and cirrhosis. NAFLD or simple fatty liver often does not produce any symptoms. However, at some point, simple fatty liver disease can cause inflammation of the liver tissue itself.
When this happens, NASH is diagnosed. There is no drug that directly addresses the symptoms of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and NASH. Physicians basically suggest a more natural approach to resolve fatty liver disease as well as any liver inflammation which may follow NAFLD. Listed here are a few treatment options for fatty liver disease to enable you to get started:

Lowering your bad Cholesterol

A high-level of low density lipoproteins (LDL) inside your body will never be beneficial if you wish to reduce the level of stored fat in your liver. Change in lifestyle or medication are the two possibilities you have with regards to lowering your bad cholesterol level.
Though these two options are both viable, with regards to long-term benefits it is highly recommended that you take the “change in lifestyle route.” Necessary changes in lifestyle include cutting out fast food and processed foods, quitting smoking, and drastically reducing alcoholic consumption.

Losing weight through proper diet and exercise

If you are overweight or perhaps obese, there is a high probability that your weight is contributing to the increase of fat stores in your liver. Consequently if you want a cure-all of sorts for fatty liver and cholesterol problems, a bit of weight loss is recommended.
Losing weight through proper diet and exercise can help reduce the overall fat attached to your liver. Diet and exercise cannot be separated. As you need to control your consumption, you also need to exercise provided you desire to get optimum results.

Thirty (30) to Forty-five (45) minutes of cardio and weight training is recommended for adults (after consulting with their physicians). You don’t need to go to the gym to start exercising.
One of the simplest and most stress-free ways to get much needed exercise is by jogging or walking. Walking at a leisurely pace for 30 minutes will be an effective treatment for fatty liver.
Furthermore, as your body becomes more accustomed to exercise, you can try more intense activities, such as sports or going to the gym to lift weights. Again, consult with your physician before engaging in any rigorous physical activity.


Avoid accelerated weight loss

The term “dieting” often brings to mind deprivation and extremely small portions. This is a misconception that has formed over the years because of “quick fix” diets that promise accelerated weight loss.Do not fall for these gimmicky diets, because they are actually bad for your liver.
Accelerated weight loss, or weight loss exceeding two per week can contribute to a fatty liver. Your liver will become fattier if you lose weight too quickly. Conclusively, if it took you thirty years to reach the weight you have now, you definitely need to give your body time to adjust to weight loss.

Do not rush things, and do not force your body to relinquish its hold on fat tissue that has been part of your body for years in the name of providing treatment for fatty liver disease. Give it time to become accustomed to your new weight loss regimen, and you will get the best results.
