Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is defined as having excessive fat in the liver with more than 5% of liver cells containing triglycerides.
It includes two types of conditions: non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), with inflammation and scarring. I think NASH is just NADL(i) getting worse and worse until it begins to damage liver cells and causes scarring. Or perhaps people with NAFL have less body-wide inflammation and don’t develop NASH – we might find the NAFL people have higher levels of magnesium – a major anti-inflammatory – and don’t develop scarring.
For the most part, medicine tries to say NAFLD is not a serious condition, even though it affects a whopping 25% of the adult population. That’s probably because only 3-5% go on to develop NASH and also because no drugs have been approved to treat it and until there are, medicine is not going to pay much attention.
Diet is the only way to counter NAFLD but since doctors don’t know much about nutrition and don’t get paid for giving nutritional advice,(ii) it continues to rise to epidemic proportions. I think NAFLD is another notch on the smoking gun of metabolic syndrome. Already, insulin resistance, obesity, overweight, obstructive sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high TGL, prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, PCOS,(iii) elevated liver enzymes, and a high sugar (fructose) diet are associated with NAFLD.
(ii) Not "paid for giving nutritional advice" says as much if not more than not knowing "much about nutrition" because if doctors were paid for giving nutritional advice that would motivate them to know nutrition.
Is "non-alcoholic fatty liver" recognized by German New Medicine?
