Fatty liver or steatosis hepatitis is the first and initial stage of occurrence of any liver problems. So one should always be alerted and starts to take care of the liver. This problem is mainly caused due to diet and other lifestyle related diseases. If you left this untreated then this fatty liver may lead to even more serious liver diseases such as cirrhosis and liver cancer (in certain cases).
This liver problem is defined as a condition that the liver gets enlarged due to the accumulation of fat cells. This fatty liver can be either alcoholic induced or non-alcoholic. Whenever this liver is overloaded with all these toxins like alcohol, fat or any other things which makes it to work harder to burn the fat at a faster rate but it is unable to convert all the fat into the energy.
Thus it makes you to feel a sudden loss of appetite, lethargy, pain in the upper right abdominal area, heartburn, acidity, vomiting or nausea and the body slows down due to fatigue. This fatty liver is also caused due to the increase in fat extraction from the intestines (place where the food which is consumed is processed). The dietary fat consumption, if remains in high continually then the fat which arrive at liver can also remains high.
These fats reduces the ability of liver to metabolize these great quantities of fats at any time, thus all these excess fats will be stored as triglycerides. Finally this gradual accumulation of the fats will definitely trigger the inflammation and injure the healthy liver cells.
The main cause for this fatty liver is heavy alcohol consumption but in certain cases, it can cause in non – alcoholic drinkers also.
