What is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)?

MBBS, MD MEDICINE, DM - Gastroenterology
Gastroenterologist, Jaipur
What is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)?

In healthy individuals, the liver contains little or no fat. In overweight or obese people, gradual fat accumulation leads to significant liver disease. Interestingly, these individuals may be consuming minimal to no alcohol. So, alcohol, which is the main cause for liver damage, does not have a significant role to play.

The non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has 4 significant stages as outlined below. It is a chronically progressive disease and may take years to reach the final stages of cirrhosis and fibrosis.

1. Simple fatty liver (steatosis): This is usually identified when diagnostic tests are done for some other suspected conditions. There are usually no symptoms obvious in this stage, other than the buildup of fat in the liver.

2. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): The second stage where the liver is inflamed to a greater extent due to fat accumulation.

3. Fibrosis: The next degree of inflammation where blood vessels may be narrowed leading to scarring in the liver with impaired liver functions.

4. Cirrhosis: This is the most severe stage that occurs due to years of cumulative inflammation. The liver shrinks in size, is scarred, and liver functions are markedly impaired and can also result in liver cancer.

Risk factors for NAFLD: The exact reason why a person develops NAFLD is not established, but some of the risk factors include

1. Obesity, with more weight concentrated around the abdomen

2. Type 2 diabetes

3. High blood pressure

4. High cholesterol levels

5. Age greater than 50

6. Smoking

Symptoms: This will depend on the stage in which it is identified. While there are no symptoms in the early stages, in some people there could be a dull, aching below the ribs, unexplained weight loss, weakness, and extreme tiredness. As it progresses to cirrhosis, there could be jaundice, fluid accumulation in the abdomen and feet, and itching of the skin.

Management: While there is no treatment aimed at curing the disease per se, there are ways to manage the symptoms, as noted below.

1. Weight loss: Reducing excess accumulated fat will help reverse symptoms and prevent further progression of the disease. A BMI of 18 to 26 is considered optimal.

2. Dietary changes: Modify your diet to a carbohydrates and protein rich and reduced fats and sugars. Increasing fiber through fruits and vegetables is highly recommended.

3. Exercise: Whatever your choice of workout, it will do wonders for NAFLD. Keep a target of an hour or two of moderate to intense exercise per day to reduce weight.

4. Smoking: This is another risk factor and can also help prevent other effects of NAFLD such as diabetes and heart disease.

NAFLD is highly controllable with these changes and other damages can be reversed too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

You have intermittent mildly raised alkaline phosphatase levels. If rest of your blood tests are normal, it is not clinically significant and does not indicate any major health problem. It could be due to minor hepatic inflammation or fatty deposition, recent bony injury, Vitamin D3 deficiency, etc. You need to have a repeat test along with other liver function tests after three months to see if there is any further rise in these levels. Right now there is nothing to feel concerned. Periodic monitoring is required. Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards.

Fatty liver doesnt require any interventional. Switching to healthy dietary plan may help to control it. As far as hernia is concerned, any hernia in elderly patient shud be operated as the complications arising from not doing surgery are bad in elderly patients.

Is there any permanent treatment for liver cirrhosis. My friend has been taking allopathic treatment since 9 years. We heard from doctor that, they can only control further damage but can't be cured permanently. I wanted to know if we have any permanent treatment in homeopathy or Ayurveda.

Hi Liver cirrhosis can be due to several causes and the treatment depends on the etiology. Treating the root cause and preventing triggers which can cause complications is very important. There are alternative therapies available only in Functional medicine whereas in modern medicine they just put a band aid .But to know what stage your cirrhosis your friend has detailed lab results as well as dietary and medication history is needed. Avoid all dairy products Avoid animal protein eat plant based foods only. Because the treatment differs from person to person depending on the age, the cause, the severity of the disease any coexisting other medical conditions etc. Start taking specific supplements which can only be discussed with a consult.

Suck in that Tummy Exercise for Good Posture

Suck in that Tummy Exercise for Good Posture

Suck in that tummy exercise for good posture


Beat that slouch, because it’s not only ungainly, it can affect your health.
Modern living has ensured that we almost certainly are not as active as previous generations. All of us spend long hours sitting at desks, in front of computers, in cars and in front of the TV. In these situations, we are not using our muscles as nature originally intended, leading to bad posture.

Bad posture can take a serious toll on your spine, shoulders, hips and knees with short-term discomfort such as stiffness in the neck and headaches. It can also cause neck pain, back pain and reduced flexibility. On the other hand, good upright posture will minimise excessive strain on your muscles and joints, optimise breathing and circulation and help keep the skeletal system strong and in alignment. It also enhances your personality and beauty. Following are a few easy-to-do exercises to improve posture:


Core exercises: The core muscles — lower back and abdominal muscles — are majorly responsible for posture. A weak posture means a weak core. Exercises like abdominal floor crunches, hyperextensions, and some yoga and pilates postures help to strengthen the core. Another good way to strengthen your core is to use an exercise ball as your chair for at least 30 minutes once or twice a day. As the exercise ball is not stable, your body needs to try to balance itself on it. This helps strengthen your core and forces proper spine alignment.
 

Chin tucks: Many people have a tendency to slouch their heads forward. When the head falls forward, the neck is less stable and more pressure is placed on the joints of the neck. To counteract this tendency, you can do this simple neck exercise called chin tucks. Sit in a chair with your shoulders down and back. Gently push your chin forward and exaggerate bad posture, then tuck in your chin. Hold the tucked position for 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat five to 10 times. This will strengthen your deep neck muscles that help to maintain the correct postural position.
 

Trunk curls: Lie on your back on the floor, with knees bent. Position your hands behind your head. Using your upper abdominal muscles, raise your trunk off the floor to about 20 degrees, as if you are trying to touch the ceiling with your chest. Hold for 5 seconds and then lie down slowly. Repeat eight to 10 times.
 

Breastbone lift: The breastbone lift is a good exercise to strengthen your lower trapezius muscles (a large superficial muscle that spans the neck, shoulders and upper back). While still in the sitting position, gently lift your breastbone a few inches higher, while squeezing both of your shoulders backwards.
 

Pelvic tilt: The pelvic tilt strengthens your abdominals and stabilises your posture by developing the core muscles of your body. To perform this exercise, lie on the floor with your knees bent. Without using your buttocks and leg muscles, tighten your lower abdominal muscles and pull your navel and lower back towards the floor. Hold for five seconds and repeat the exercise eight to 10 times.
 

Arm/leg raises: This is a simple exercise to strengthen your lower back and support good posture. Lie face down on the floor with your arms straight overhead and legs extended. Slowly raise your left arm and right leg about six inches off the ground. Hold for five seconds and repeat the same with the opposite combination. Do sets of 10 repetitions for each side.
 

Shoulder squeeze: Shoulder squeeze is an exercise to correct your shoulder posture. To perform this exercise, sit on a chair and place your hands on your thighs. Keep your shoulders straight. Gradually move your shoulders backwards and compress the shoulder blades together. Hold for five seconds and repeat it five to eight times. This exercise is also good for your spine flexibility.
 

Abdominal pull-in: Sit straight and inhale deeply. While exhaling count to five and pull your stomach in. Repeat several times and relax.
 

Chin glide: The chin glide is a good exercise to curb your tendency to stick your neck out and unnaturally forward. Stand with your head held straight and shoulders relaxed. Slowly glide your head backwards until you feel a little stress. Do not tilt your head while moving your head backward. Hold this position for about 10 seconds and repeat it three to five times. You can perform this exercise at various intervals throughout the day.

Correcting exercises for your posture will enable you to eliminate various body pains, while making you look and feel more confident. So start now!

Dear lybrate-user, Alcohol withdrawal symptoms starts within 6-8 hours of stopping alcohol. They can be treated effectively with calmpose kind of tablets and vitamins, if it is not complicated. Complicated withdrawal needs further treatment. Usually withdrawal is not more than 10-14 days. But you seem to be having depressive disorder in addition to alcohol withdrawal. Both should be treated simultaneously. Nice to know that your liver is stabilising. Even after knowing it, if you are depressed and afraid of dying, please consult a psychiatrist or ask your doctor to take a psychiatrist's opinion.

You should take care that you avoid all packaged food items (junk and processed food) as they contain more salt. Do not take more that 1.5 to 2 gm of salt. Avoid cold drinks and other ready-made hotel foods. The water restriction is based on your health status. Otherwise you can take 8-10 glasses of water or more if you feel thirsty. Be in touch with your doctor every 3-6 months. Go for regular check up (include Liver profile test, USG abodomen, and screening Endoscopy .).Have ideal weight by staying fit. Have a healthy (organic food) diet with more vegetables and fruits. Avoid all bad habits (alcohol, tobacco etc) and learn Yoga to enhance overall health and relaxation.

Dear lybrate-user, Liver will recover if you stop drinking itself. With added help it will recover faster. AST, ALT GGT are important enzymes of liver. There are not disturbed too much. You have an encouraging wife and 2 young children. With the guilt of suffering cirrhosis, you may not restart drinking again. Please discuss with your doctor about your feelings also. Either he may counsel you about your capacity to go for job and earn or refer you to a psychiatrist who will treat you with antidepressants.
