The liver is the second largest organ in the body. It’s responsible for a wide variety of functions, including processing everything we eat and drink, and filtering harmful substances from the blood. Too much fat in the liver can lead to long-term liver damage.
It is always recommended to buy prescribed meds from online or any drug store and there are many online stores on which we can buy meds for Allergy Relief, mygenericpharmacy is one of them which i have searched.
It’s a well-written article on non alcoholic fatty liver Enjoyed it. Thanks. Looking forward for New drugs.
The most common cause of fatty liver identified in most cases is alcohol use disorder and heavy drinking. In many cases, it’s much less clear what causes fatty liver in people who don’t drink much alcohol. However, higher body weight, a diet high in processed sugar, high triglycerides, diabetes, low physical activity, and genetics all play a role.
Fatty liver develops when the body creates too much fat or can’t metabolize fat efficiently enough. The excess fat is stored in liver cells where it accumulates and causes fatty liver disease.
I will also suggest to take consultancy and take prescribed meds only. Meds are easily available at online
store like amzon, healthkart or mygenericpharmacy.
There is a device called Fibroscan for liver screening. I had uncommon, persistent fatigue and discovered I have fatty liver. Similar to an ultrasound. Should be standard screening IMHO.
Thank you for writing on this important and too often ignored issue. 25% of Americans are estimated to be on the spectrum of fatty liver disease to NASH, with little ability to predict how fast someone might progress to more advanced disease. So no level of disease is safe or benign.
