Fatty Liver Disease

2 ratings | 936 views
Doctors say fatty liver disease could be one of the first signs of diabetes, but there are usually no symptoms. Dr. Michael Bays, a gastroenterologist on staff at Lee Health, says everyone has a small amount of fat in their liver. “The liver is one of the places that’s responsible for metabolizing and creating fat. It’s where it creates insulin. You’re going to have some fat in the liver but the issue would be--are your liver enzymes abnormal?” Dr. Bays says when there’s too much fat in the liver it’s time to be concerned. “If you have fat in your liver it does indicate that you’re probably becoming somewhat insulin resistant, which may mean pre-diabetic.” Ninety percent of people who have abnormal liver enzymes have fatty liver disease. “When you see someone that has abnormal liver enzymes and has a slightly elevated liver on an ultrasound suggesting some fat in the liver, then you want to treat them with weight loss, make sure they’re not diabetic, and make sure they’re watching their sugar intakes, and checking their cholesterol levels,” said Dr. Bays. Doctors say most patients with fatty liver disease are overweight. If diagnosed patients need to make immediate diet and lifestyle changes to try to prevent the onset of diabetes. “The treatment is: try to keep your BMI low, make sure you avoid simple sugars, and stay away from the diabetic profile,” said Dr. Bays. It’s also important to be physically active and have regular visits with your doctor.

I`ve suffered from fatty liver for more than 5 years. And last year I had been identified as having Diabetes type 2 as well. I dreaded the thought of taking too many meds that might cause negative effects, which was why I looked up other ways. Eventually I came across this fatty liver treatment method “humu shocking plan” (Google it) and it right away made sense! Since I started out using it, my health has not been better.

I have endured fatty liver for over 5 years. The physicians advised me to take meds and pills like there wasn`t any other way. I thought like that was the last of me and I was really down. Then I discovered the fatty liver treatment solution “humu shocking plan” (Google it) and started making use of it. The outcomes have been amazing.

I was depressed, over weight and struggling terribly before. I have never had an official diagnosis of fatty liver but after the developments I`ve seen, I`m sure that was it! I discovered about fatty liver treatment “humu shocking plan” (Google it) and followed the instructions on getting it correctly, and that`s why I`m treated now. It`s LIFE SAVER!

In the past, I gained weight and developed major depression that I thought of not doing anything. I`ve never had an official diagnosis of fatty liver but right after the improvements I`ve seen, I am pretty sure that was it! I found out about fatty liver treatment solution “humu shocking plan” (Google it) and used the guidelines on getting it properly, which is why I am cured now. It`s Life-saver!
