Friday 16 September 2011

Do you know that the liver is the largest internal organ in our body? One of its major functions is to remove toxic and waste from our body. As it also performs many, many other functions, it is important to ensure our liver is healthy.

Fatty liver is a condition when the fat in the liver exceeds 5% of liver weight. If the fat exceeds 10% of liver weight, the fat cells can damage liver cells.

Risk factors for developing fatty liver include:
  • High blood sugar levels. 88% of type 2 diabetics develop fatty liver.
  • Being overweight. 80% of obese patients have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Most people have no symptoms at this stage and the liver is not enlarged.
  • High cholesterol levels. 63% of NAFLD patients also have high cholesterol.
  • Alcohol drinkers.

Tips to keeping your liver healthy:
  • Increase consumption of low-glycaemic index foods.
  • Low fat diet.
  • High fibre diet.
  • Regular exercise.
  • Lose weight.
  • Nutritional supplements.
