Fatty liver is a condition where excess fat is deposited on this organ. Also called as steatosis, this condition happens when more than 5- 10 percent of the weight of the liver is made up of fat.
Fatty liver is a common condition among people. A study from coastal regions of India found ~ 25% of healthy persons had patients had fatty liver on ultrasound.
It can occur at all ages including childhood, highest prevalence is in 40–50 year age group. Prevalence more in patient who are obese and in diabetic patients.
Types of Fatty Liver
1. Alcoholic fatty liver: This condition occurs when there is a heavy consumption of alcohol. Gastroenterologists recommend abstention from alcohol for this condition to subside. If the patient continues to consume alcohol, then liver cirrhosis may develop.
2. Non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL): One may develop a fatty liver even if one is not an alcoholic. The liver in some cases is unable to process the fat in cells causing them to build-up on the organ.
When more than 10% of the liver is made of fat then this condition is called Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFL).
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): When fatty liver is associated with inflammation in liver patient is said to be having Non alcoholic steatohepatitis. NASH is a more advanced stage of NAFLD, and has a higher risk of progressing to liver cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). These condition display symptoms like jaundice, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite and abdominal pain. Blood test (LFT) shows raised enzymes level. Approx 5-8% of the Indian population has NASH. Consult a doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
During the early stages (fatty liver) of the disease, patients usually have no symptoms directly related to liver disease. However, people may experience a vague abdominal discomfort. If their liver is inflamed (NASH) then they may display symptoms of poor appetite, weight loss, pain in the abdomen and disorientation.
What causes fatty liver?
The most common cause of fatty liver is alcoholism. When the human liver is unable to metabolize fat fast enough or when there is an excess accumulation of fat on the liver cells then the liver becomes fatty. However, intake of high-fat foods may not result in a fatty liver.
- Diabetes mellitus
- Obesity or being overweight
- Hyperlipidemia or the condition where there are high levels of fat in the blood
- Genetic reasons
- Rapid loss of weight
- Drugs: Aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, tetracycline etc. cause side effects which also leads to fatty liver
- Nutritional status (eg, overnutrition, severe malnutrition, total parenteral nutrition [TPN], or starvation diet)
- Other health problems (eg, Hepatitis C infection, celiac sprue and Wilson disease)
I have abdominal pain for more than 3 month Ultrasound report says prominent bowel loops What it means please help me.
Many times we forget about the importance of our health in the race to pursue our careers and goals. We take our bodies for granted and keep working them without stopping for a breath. While some may have mastered this art, there are many who may not be able to cope with such a lifestyle and may end up falling ill. The most common problem that most people suffer from is stomach upset, gas, or stomach pain, and all of this may be because of not eating right or having irregular eating habits.
It is due to such problems that people fall ill and then go to the doctor with a problem that may take much longer to treat. However, if the patient starts to check in with the doctor before the stomach pain worsens, it may be easier to treat because very often the pain arises from stomach ulcers. Ulcers are sores that are caused on the lining of the stomach or the oesophagus or even on the intestines. In serious cases, the sores may cause great damage to the stomach and may lead to much worse issues. However, with the right intake of food, the damage may be controlled in combination with medicines and treatment from experts.
Foods to avoid
In controlling the spread of stomach ulcers or peptic ulcers, it may be important to know the food that should be avoided so that the medicines and treatments taken for controlling the problem may work better. Here is a list of foods that you should avoid:
- Hot beverages such as tea, coffee, cocoa and milk should be avoided because they cause acid imbalance in the stomach.
- Anything that may contain caffeine should also be avoided.
- Alcohol should be completely avoided by those suffering from peptic ulcers.
- Citric or sour drinks such as grape or orange drinks should also be avoided for remaining at ease.
- Any spicy powders or seasonings, such as pepper, chilli powder and garlic should be excluded from the diet.
- Anything that is made from milk or cream and is extremely fatty in nature should not be consumed.
- Flavoured cheese that is strong and spicy should not be eaten.
- Meats that include high levels of fat or those that are highly seasoned should be completely avoided.
- Chillies or peppers in any form should be kept away from your diet.
- Anything that is made from tomato should also be avoided, such gravy, sauces or raw tomatoes.
When you start to keep your diet clean and healthy, it may be much easier for your doctor to cure you of stomach ulcers.

Cancer is a disease everyone dreads. It is not only difficult to come to terms with this but in many cases, it can be downright traumatic. Cancer is a medical condition wherein the growth of abnormal cells cannot be controlled. In some kind of cancers, the cells spread to other tissues making the situation worse.
Stomach cancer usually occurs across the lining of the stomach that is responsible for producing mucus. This form of cancer is known as adenocarcinoma. It has been witnessed that cancer occurring in the body of the stomach has drastically reduced. Instead, the cases of cancer occurring in the upper portion of the stomach have increased. This area of the cancer is termed as gastroesophageal junction.
What are the symptoms of stomach cancer?
Symptoms and visible signs of gastroesophageal junction cancer include the following:
- Fatigue throughout the day
- Feeling of bloating just after a meal.
- Loss of appetite or feeling full after consuming very little food
- Sharp to dull to constant pain in the stomach
- Frequent but unexplained nausea
- The persistent problem of indigestion.
- Frequent heartburn
- Frequent and persisting vomiting. This is applicable before and after dinner
- A feeling of weakness throughout the day
Causes of stomach cancer:
Stomach cancer like any other cancer occurs when there is a mutation occurs in a cell. The mutation forces the cell to rapidly divide and grow. Like other cells, they do not die. They also affect the nearby organ and thus spreads throughout the body. Gastroesophageal junction cancer is closely related to smoking, obesity and gastrointestinal reflux disease. Studies have shown a high correlation between cancer in the main body of the stomach and salted foods.
What are the risks involved?
The primary risk for this condition is obesity and GERD. Factors that can increase the risk of stomach cancer include the following:
- Smoked food or a diet that is rich in salt.
- A family history of stomach cancer.
- Polyps in the stomach.
- A long history of inflammation of the stomach.
- A diet that is not rich in vegetables and fruits.
- Food infection with a fungus called aflatoxin.
Diagnosis of Stomach Cancer:
Diagnosis is done by a series of tests. Th first one being upper endoscopy that involves the insertion of a tiny camera inside the stomach to find out the inner picture. In the case of any suspiciousness, a small tissue is taken out to inspect. Some other imaging tests include CT scan, barium swallow etc. There could be four stages of cancer depending on the advancement of the spread of the cancer cells in other organs of the body.
The treatment plan is decided depending on the stage of cancer. If a doctor feels that surgery is required to eradicate the infected tissue, he suggests the same along with radiotherapy. If, however, the surgery is not needed, doctors suggest chemotherapy followed by few dosages of radiotherapy. The dosage is decided on the extent of the spread of cancer and other factors such as future threat, the present medical condition of the patient etc. Surgery is the only best hope available in present world depending upon the stage !
