Do You Have This Disease? This Blog Post COULD Save Your Life!
My question to you, the reader and hopefully the person that wants to improve their health is this...do you know what fatty liver disease is? I didn't know about this until I had one of my friends and his best friend die from the exact same thing. Do YOU know what fatty liver disease is? If you know know, you should DEFINITELY be reading this. I MUST warn you though. This could be VERY shocking news for the majority of people that don't know what it is and for those people that don't know if they have it.
Why do I ask if you have fatty liver disease?
I ask because it is directly conjoined with obesity and the concept of eating WAY too much food! The number of cases for NAFLD, or Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease was 90 million back in 2013, just in America alone. The number has risen considerably over the past three years. If this disease is caught early you can save yourself and your life, but it will be a long battle.
What is fatty liver disease?
Fatty liver disease is the storing of fat by your body after glucose has been made in over abundance and your body can't use it all. The fat is then stored on your body and around your liver. You see, your liver creates fat when fructose is pumped into the liver. Your liver can't get rid of the fat quick enough, so it just stores it. The process of sugars being turned into fat in the liver is called lipogenesis. To put it in simple terms, you eat sugar, your liver creates fat.
How do I know if I have NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease)?Blood tests and an ultrasound are some of the sure-fire ways of telling if you have fatty liver disease. The other way to tell is this; do you eat sugar, fat, carbs, drink soda, eat junk food all day, and have a bit of a belly? You most likely have it if you answered yes to these. If you do have NAFLD then you are at risk for your liver to shut down and your body will shut down as well. You will find that your body will just stop functioning unless you do something. Let's dive into what you can do to save your own life or at least give yourself a fighting chance.
1. Consult Your Doctor
If you answered yes to consuming large amounts of sugar, flour and carbs and you have a belly, then you need to consult your doctor and ask him or her about fatty liver disease. Because NAFLD is in relation to diabetes, you are definitely going to want to get more information as to if you have it and what it is.
2. Eliminate the Sugar
Sugar has absolutely no nutritional value for you. It is just plain bad. Fatty liver disease and cancer is fed by sugar. We eat and drink so much sugar that we should be always be in a hyper and sugar mode. By eliminating the sugar consumption you can work on flushing out the garbage that is stuck in your liver and around it as well.
3. Cut the Carbs
Carbs are also made into sugar that is made into fat and that makes your liver fatty. Cutting the breads and pastas is really helpful when cutting fat and beating fatty liver disease. Carbs are the building blocks and are fuel for your brain in order to operate. The problem is that we over-indulge ourselves and eat WAY too much in the way of carbs.
4. Burn More Fat
Get off of your butt and go and exercise! When your body gets to the point of constant muscle atrophy, you will find that your body will need all of the junk food just to get going. Burn more fat to give yourself a chance to burn the fat off of your liver. You can still save your liver, but it will be hard to do.
I hope that you the reader have found this blog post very eye-opening and informative. You really need to take this seriously and make an effort to change or else you will find yourself in an early grave.
