Do You Know What Fatty Liver Is?


Majid Ali, M.D.

Knowing What Fatty Liver Might Help You Live Longer, If You Are Over-Weight or Insulin-Toxic 


Buildup of grease in the liver is called fatty liver in pathology terminology. I have seen many patients with fatty liver diagnosed with ultrasound scan and normal blood liver function tests.  These cases are regularly missed by doctors who rely on liver blood tests.


How Do You Know If You Are Insulin-Toxic?

 

By doing a a three-hour insulin blood tests. For my patients, I order this test to be accompanied by blood glucose (sugar) tests, which are helpful but do not answer the crucial questions which only insulin tests can. order. I explain this important point fully in my FREE “Dr. Ali’s Insulin Course” posted at http://www.AliDiabetes.org.


 

Seven Things to Know About Fatty Liver  

1. In most cases, it is caused insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism), less often by alcholh consumption, viral injuries, and chemical poisoning.

2. It is spreading in an epidemic way in the United States, including among children.

3. In its early changes, fatty liver is known only to pathologists as build-up of fat in the liver cells seen with a microscope.

4. In later stages, the best way to diagnose is with a high-resolution ultrasound scan.

5. It is progressive unless reversed.

6. There are no drugs to reverse it.

7. It can be reversed only with gentle daily liver detox with natural measures; I discuss all of the above seven essential aspects of fatty liver in my free course at this site entitled Dr. Ali’s Liver Course.


Fatty Liver in early Stage In its early changes, fatty liver is known only to pathologists as build-up of fat in the liver cells. It has no clinical features. It cannot be seen without a microscope. The blood tests for liver function included in the chemistry profiles used by doctors are all negative. This is why fatty live in this stage is neither recognized not treated by internists, gastroenterologists, and hepatologists (liver specialists). It is profoundly ironic that when integrative physicians recommend liver detox for empirical reasons, it is ridiculed by mainstream doctors. The liver at this early stage is rarely enlarged by clinical examination.


Fatty Liver Videos

I include the titles and links for five videos on the crucial aspects of fatty liver. The readers will find them to be brief and highly informative.


Liver Detox for Early Fatty Liver Gentle liver detox in my opinion is achieved with spices and lecithin (for my recipe, please go to Spicy Smoothie at this site.


Fatty Liver of Intermediate Degree Percussion (firm tapping) of the liver often elicits some discomfort from the patient as a sign of liver pathology which often included fatty change. At this or somewhat later stage, high resolution ultrasound scans can detect fatty change.


I agree with the following Wikipedia text about fatty liver. This, however, for reasons given above, is true of only late stages of fatty liver injury. Also note that Wikipedia is completely silent on the crucial matter of liver detox to reverse fatty liver.


NASH Th term NASH abbreviates non-alcoholic steatonecrosis. In simple words it is advanced fatty liver with progression to liver cell death in some areas.

Steatohepatitis is a term used for fatty liver (steatosis) accompanied by inflammation. This is  an arbitrary designation because fat excess cellular fat is inflaming and so all fatty change by definition is an inflammatory change.
