Homoeopathic treatment is safe and effective way to provide permanent cure in fatty liver grade 2 disease. If you're willing to take a homoeopathic treatment just let me know through private conversation in Lybrate. Fatty Liver Grade 2 Unhealthy lifestyle habits along with poor health maintenance usually give rise to various health problems.  In such a situation it is normally the gastrointestinal tract that gets affected initially, with the liver taking a major brunt of it all.  Fatty liver disease has progressed to be the most common ailment of the liver suffered by most at the present time. Causes – In some, genetics may be the causative factor for this disease condition.  But most often it is either due to abnormal conditions of the body systems like diabetes, high blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels, or excess body weight.  Over use of certain medications are also known to interfere with the proper functions of the liver and cause fatty liver disease to set in.  Heavy alcohol drinking is also linked to this liver condition. Treatment – Effective treatment depends on identifying the exact cause behind this disease development.  Now, fatty liver is classified into two – alcoholic and non-alcoholic type.  Hence, if an individual is diagnosed with the alcoholic type, then refraining from drinking alcohol, even in moderate amounts, will help in reversing this liver disease. For the non-alcoholic fatty liver type sufferers though the treatment involves a change in diet and lifestyle habits. Foods to Be Avoided – Refined carbohydrates like white rice, white bread, noodles, and pasta to be removed from the person’s diet. Processed junk foods contain excess greasy fats and thus needs to be removed.  Breakfast cereals are also processed highly and should be avoided.  Likewise, baked goods like cakes, cookies, scones, puff pastry, etc. Require excess fats for baking purposes and needs to be eliminated by the sufferer. Deep fried sweet and savories also to be avoided by the person.  Meat, especially red meats like lamb, pork and beef, and meat products that contain animal fats needs to be avoided. Dairy rich products like cheese, butter, margarine, mayonnaise, ice-creams and fruit yogurt also to be avoided. Artificial sweeteners to be avoided for breakdown of these additives will exert the liver. Foods to Promote Healthy Liver – Whole grains like brown rice, whole wheat, rye, and oats to be made part of the person’s regular diet.  Organic fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber will benefit a fatty liver sufferer. If meat cannot be avoided, the person will need to switch to fat-trimmed meats and chicken.  Seafood like prawn, mackerel, salmon, sardine, tuna, etc. Which are rich in essential fatty acids may also be consumed by the sufferer. For regular cooking, oils that contain omega-3 fatty acids are recommended for the sufferer.  The best choice would be cold-pressed olive oil. Exercise – Reduction ofugh abdominal fat with exercise is recommended for fatty liver sufferers.  A regular exercise routine will also keep overall body weight at desired levels, which is essential to keep all disease conditions at bay.

Dear lybrate-user, The chances are that it might be because of acidity but sometimes due to gall bladder problems also you may have this kind of problem. I will recommend that you must undergo an Ultrasound of abdomen to be sure of that. Especially so if frequency of this pain is increasing. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Afeem addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I' m 22 female my skin was very fair bt last year I was suffered from ulcer colitis bt now my face become glowless and dark please suggest me what I do ?

Diploma in homeopathy, B. Sc

Forget the medical terms, and tell me exactly what you suffered. Example if you have a headache on one side, don't say hemicrania but say pain on one side - okay? there are a few reasons for the skin to darken - liver problems is one. You tell me your problem exactly and I will medicate you. If it' s a temporary setback then it will clear in time. But if something deeper, you'll need medical intervention. Dr. J tikari

I have two question :- (1)-mental tension or fearness during passing hard stool has any contribution for anal fissures occurring because everyone get hard stool at one time in their lifetime but only few get fissures in ano?(2 ):- Why a fully healed fissures easily recur after another hard motion or he is prone to get another fissures even after surgery?

MS - General Surgery
General Physician, Jalandhar
Yes, stress is a known cause of type c Irritable bowel syndrome, which includes constipation as the main complaint. Yes being stressful at time of passing stool, or being in a hurry to get things over with can lead to tears due to sudden passage of stool from an Initially constricted state of the anal sphincter muscles and the inner delicate mucosa layer. Coupled with constipation it can lead to anal fissures. Thirdly, as you must have seen, Bhiman, whenever we're injured, healing takes place by scarring, and nothing can beat the original configuration of the body. So a healed fissure is more likely to recur again. Moreover some people have a genetic predisposition to develop anal fissures, while in rare cases it can be a sign of anal cancers or it can be due to several other reasons. So next time you are sitting on the pot, be calm ad relaxed, give time for your muscles to relax, start including a lot of fiber foods in your diet, drink plenty of water, practice stress management, or visit a therapist. I hope you are helped.

Hello- fatty liver in females is generally due to improper diet and lack of exercise. A) avoid sleeping in day time. B) stop eating fermented foods, foods heavy to digest and fast foods if consuming. C) fix your meal timings and take evening meals before 7 pm. D) practice kapalbhati pranayam in the morning (very effective in fatty liver patients.) e) use tab arogyawardhini vati 1 twice daily.
