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.

Rajendra it's good that you have recovered from grave situation and doing well but predicting life expectancy none can provide you as in medical science we do best to treat the condition and impart good health but predicting life span is impossible for anyone being a doctor . management and proper check up from time to time is key to good health.

I'm suffering from ulcerative colitis. I was diagnosed in 2011 Nov. After doing colonoscopy my doctor told that it has affected my whole colon and suggested me methylprednisolone from 36 mg and decreasing it 4 mg every 5 days and stop it. And I used Azathioprine and mesacol for 4 years. After I started using these medicines I started feeling normal but used to have inflammation sometimes and with using ornidazole for 3 days I used to become normal. In Nov 2015 after doing colonoscopy again my doctor confirmed that it has cured very well and asked me to stop using Azathioprine and continue using mesacol. Now almost after 1 and half year again y symptoms for Ulcerative colitis came back and I had to consult doctor and again after doing sigmoidoscopy it is confirmed that ulcer has started again in my colon. Again I was suggested to methylprednisolone and Azathioprine. Currently I'm under medication. Now with my experience I figured out that over masturbation has caused ulcerative colitis to me. Actual in when I was 12 or 13 I got to know something that happened in my family and it disturbed me a lot and got me into masturbation and now it is causing so many health issues for me. As mentioned earlier I used to have increased inflammation sometimes under medication too, that used to happen when ever I had done masturbation. So, I have decided I won't do it again and by end of 2015 everything was fine it got cured well. Now recently in Feb 2017 I had masturbated twice and my ulcerative colitis came back. Until then I was fine without any problem. Now my question is only masturbating twice has got me again into worse ulcerative colitis, if I have sex then will it worsen my condition? I'm 24 and my parents are started searching matches for me and I'm very confused about what to do. If having sex increases ulcerative colitis then I don't want to get into it as this may lead to colon cancer and surgery all those things. I don't want to risk my health and life. Also my ovaries functioning has decreased. I think the reason for that is also excessive masturbation. Please suggest me something on this.

sir go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. To fight Ulcerative Colitis detoxification of the body is very much helpful. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy. strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if u r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. try to keep ur bowel clear. it may gas-distention trouble due to indigestion. have simple bland food (Khichadi) for next few days avoiding junk, oily, spicy fried and deep-fried food items. drink lot of water. Add Jeera, Ajwain, Sonth in ur food items – these herbs prevent gas formation. Reduce intake of tea – coffee. Instead u can have green tea. dont lye-down or sit immediately after having meals. have a walk instead. maintain good bowel habits. Have more of Coconut Water, Gulkand etc to relieve acidity, Avoid too much of Cauliflower, Peas, Brinjals, Namkeens as snacks etc. Do regular walking and mild exercises. You may also do a weekly fast – just to relax and calm down ur system. Fasting also helps in cleansing of the system. for gas some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that u may consult me privately over Lyberate. Please update with ur valuable feedback.

Dear lybrate-user, If your problems were due to Vitamin B12 and D deficiency, everything will be sorted out with 12 weeks of treatment. Wait without restarting ayurvedic medicines patiently for some more time. Whatever you are facing may be withdrawal symptoms or may be a part of the original disorder. Doctor would have given antidepressant because he would have diagnosed gastric problem is due to depression. Most of the ayurvedic medicines are alcohol based. What you are facing is NOT alcohol withdrawal.

Having worms at this age indicates a severe bunch of hygiene with which we can not be cured, also get your stool test done to identify the detail nature of infestation and patho physiology. You may starts iron supplement because this worms directly feed on the blood. You should start homoeopathy treatment earliest to get rid of this trouble permanent.

All these troubles are due to out side foods or undigested foods. A lot of people suffers these problems. Try to go for homely foods that is far better. Or prepared home foods where you get. Don" t go for hotel foods. Not only indigestion, liver metabolism gets disordered and constipation results. Always take warm cooked food. Take fiber rich foods, fruits, raw veg. Foods, etc. It helps normal defecation and your indigestion gets cured. Homoeopathiclly take Nux vom 200 tor two days, twice.in a day half an hour before food.
