What is fatty liver disease?

.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a progressive disease that develops in people who drink little or no alcohol.

.

It begins with its mildest form, simple fatty liver, an accumulation of fat in liver cells that, by itself, usually doesnt lead to liver damage.

.

However, a liver infiltrated with fat is more susceptible to further injury.

.

NAFLD can progress over time to a more severe form called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which is fatty liver accompanied by inflammation and death of liver cells. (Steato means fat and hepatitis means liver inflammation.)

.

About 15 per cent of people with NAFLD will go on to develop irreversible advanced liver scarring called cirrhosis, which makes it difficult for the liver to carry out its essential tasks.

.

NAFLD also increases the risk of developing heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes.

.

Prevalence is growing fast

.

NAFLD is the most common chronic liver disease in Canada and in other western countries. Its estimated that one in five Canadians has NAFLD, a number thats escalating in conjunction with the increasing incidence of obesity and Type 2 diabetes. Many people dont even know they have a fatty liver.

.

Fatty liver disease isnt only an adult health problem, its showing up in children, too.

.

What causes fatty liver?

.

The most common cause of NAFLD is obesity. Its estimated that 75 per cent of obese individuals are at risk of developing simple fatty liver and nearly one-quarter (23 per cent) are at risk for fatty liver with inflammation.

.

Having diabetes, high blood cholesterol and high triglycerides (blood fats) also increases the likelihood of developing fatty liver disease. Some people, though, dont have a clear predisposing cause.

.

The underlying mechanism for fat build-up in the liver is believed to be insulin resistance, often a consequence of obesity and excess belly fat. Insulin resistance means the bodys cells are unable to use insulin properly. As a result, the body needs higher levels of insulin to clear sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream.

.

Do certain foods cause NAFLD?

.

A diet thats too high in fat contributes to excess fat stored in the liver. So does one thats high in refined carbohydrates and sugars. Liver cells convert excess glucose  the sugar thats absorbed into the bloodstream after digestion  into fat.
