The Most Common Liver Disease

Non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) is the most common liver disease in the United States, affecting more than 60 million Americans. Previously thought to be benign, it has become the leading indication for liver transplantation in adults under 50 years of age and the leading predisposing risk factor for the development of primary liver cancer in the United States. Unfortunately, its prevalence continues to rise in almost all communities.

Simply put, fatty liver is a condition whereby fat gets deposited into the liver. NAFLD in the liver is a spectrum that includes just fat that is non-concerning, fat and inflammation, fat and fibrosis and cirrhosis, all of which are worrisome. Fat with inflammation or fibrosis is termed non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH. NAFLD is usually associated with obesity and diabetes, although normal weight non-diabetics are not uncommonly diagnosed with this. Ninety percent of type 2 diabetics have fatty liver.

Steatohepatitis can progress to cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer and physicians. Although the percentage of people with NASH who progress to cirrhosis is low, large numbers of people develop advanced disease because the overall number of people with this condition is so high. Interestingly, patients with fatty liver can develop liver cancer without developing cirrhosis and these patients should be screened yearly with an abdominal ultrasound.

The diagnosis of fatty liver is usually suggested on an abdominal sonogram or CAT scan. Liver tests may be normal or abnormal. Non-invasive scores utilizing multiple variables are helpful in the evaluation. Transient elastography can determine the degree of steatosis and fibrosis. A liver biopsy is required to determine the extent of fatty infiltration and to determine if inflammation or scarring is present.

Diet, exercise and weight loss are the treatments of choice for NAFLD. Although this regimen makes overall good sense, it is hard for most people to follow. Vitamin E is used in the treatment of NASH with some success. There are many therapies for fatty liver available in clinical studies. Recent data presented at the International Liver Meeting in Paris, France held in April 2018 show significant promise that several of these therapies improve liver fat levels and lead to a decrease in fibrosis levels in periods as short as 12 weeks. People with NAFLD should strongly consider participation in these studies.

For patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, weight gain, poor glucose control and hyperlipidemia should be addressed with weight reduction and adequate glucose and lipid control. Since there is no strong evidence to support any single treatment strategy, physicians should carefully discuss the risks and benefits of multiple therapies with their patients. The best treatment of fatty liver is prevention. Once fatty liver is present, diet and exercise are crucial to prevent long-term complications.

It's a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr .Hazim, but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try Dr. Hazim , then i contacted him through his email when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication and ask me to go for check up after 21 days of taking the medication. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for check up after 21 days of the treatment, To my greatest surprise my result came out  negative after the treatment, I'm very happy that i was cured and been  healthy again. I waited for 3 weeks to be very sure if I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through Herpes, HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Cancer to contact this great man through his Email [email protected] OR add him up on whatsApp  +2349058026857Thanks Doctor Hazim Usman
