Fatty liver

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Delighted to be able to help.

Fatty liver is a chronic pathology but with medical advice, liver lesions are minor and there is not complications.The main causes of fatty liver are overweight-obesity, chronic alcohol consumption and high blood cholesterol levels.

Consequently, a person with fatty liver must control your weight, avoid alcohol, reduce the consumption of fatty foods and practice physical exercise.

If a person with fatty liver drinks alcohol may appear liver cirrhosis (fatty liver serious complication).If you follow the recommendations mentioned and your doctor checks your cholesterol, GOT and GPT levels in blood every 6 months,probably you will avoid complications of Fatty Liver.

I Hope I have answered your query.
