    When the cells of the liver become

    damaged, the immune system responds

    to this and causes inflammation to develop

    inside the liver . As this inflammation continues and leads to death of the liver cells, (Cirrhosis) the patient has difficulty digesting and absorbing fats in the diet and it can lead to steatohepatitis. Steato means fat and Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver


    A Fatty liver is caused by alcohol consumption, weight gain, insulin resistance, hereditary conditions, diabetes, high cholesterol/ triglyceride levels and other things.

    I don't believe a fatty liver can come from

    a virus such as Hepatitis A,B,C, etc.

    a virus enters the body and goes into the

    liver cells and uses the patient's cell genetic

    machinery to replicate itself. In and of itself,

    it can cause inflammation of the liver cells...but as far as causing a fatty liver until the functions of the liver cells start to

    deteriorate...that I haven't heard of as yet. The hepatologists are still doing alot of research on fatty liver disease...maybe they will find some connection in the future, I'm not sure.

    There is simple fatty liver which usually isn't

    a problem because the fat is located mostly

    on the outside of the liver or it hasn't advanced that much inside the liver.

    There is NASH which is fatty liver that causes inflammation of the liver cells. This is also known as Non Alcoholic Steatohepatitis .

    This is more serious and

    the patient should be very concerned about

    following all their doctors orders. This,

    if not treated and not reversed can lead to

    a more serious disease that cannot be

    reversed known as Cirrhosis of the liver

    (death of the liver cells).

    Then there is Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

    caused by alcohol consumption. If the alcohol

    is stopped and the inflammation is treated,

    this can reverse, if the cells have not died off.

    I hope this information is of some help to you.

    Fatty liver disease affects a whopping 30% of the population. That's 30 out of every 100 people! And some estimates have it at 33%.

    And if you're overweight, it's even worse overweight people are extremely more likely than healthy weight individuals to develop this condition.

    In other words, you're not alone. Not by a long shot.

    Other fatty liver sufferers have reversed their condition, lost weight, and rediscovered their energy, using completely natural remedies. And that means you can, too!

    The most common cause is alcoholism. Almost all heavy drinkers have fatty liver disease. Other causes are toxins, certain drugs, and inherited metabolic disorders. In many cases, doctors are not exactly sure what causes fatty liver in people who aren’t alcoholics, but it has been associated with high blood cholesterol, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.

    Likelihood is you're eating too fast. Try holding a conversation while using a meal so you're not gulping down more than you'll want to feel full.

    When out at a restaurant, ask the server to hold the bread, snack mix or chips and salsa that might come before the meal. For anyone who is hungry, you'll be tempted.
