What a fatty liver can do to your health.

Fatty Liver

Fatty liver disease seems to be on the rise. Twenty years ago when I first started practicing it was uncommon. Now I have quite a few patients with this disease. Weight gain and life style is the biggest culprit in this disease.

There is an array of potential natural therapies are being tested against fatty liver disease and show some promise.

Scientists in Japan have found that a diet composed of6% cinnamon by weight decreased the fat in rats’ livers.That is a lot of cinnamon!In a yearlong Italian study of56 people, liver fat declinedin those who each day took a capsule containing 1 gram of polyunsaturated fatty acids.And preliminary studies hint that disturbances in naturally occurring bacteria in the gut may contribute to fatty liver disease.An of courseweight loss has been shown to be effective.However,excessively rapid weight loss say that gastric bypass provides, mightparadoxically aggravate fatty liver.
