Can fatty liver be reversed…How long does it take to reverse fatty liver?

Some things in life are not reversible. but luckily for us – our livers are extremely resilient and able to completely heal and regenerate.

why do I say lucky? because liver disease is very common- in fact, fatty liver affects up to 30% of us!

Fatty liver is when more than 5% of your liver has fat in it. this might sound harmless but it’s quite the opposite- this fat can be metabolically active and cause widespread SYSTEMIC INFLAMMATION in your body and heart disease and cancer, not to mention the scarring (“fibrosis”) in your liver, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.

Fat in your liver can have many causes- but the most common are alcohol and metabolic syndrome. when alcohol is to blame than the treatment is obvious- put down that martini and pick up that mocktail. but when it’s metabolic syndrome (“MAFLD” =metabolic associated fatty liver disease ) there’s more to unpack- but the most important thing to focus on is insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance is when there is way too much sugar in the blood (GLUCOSE TOXICITY) so the pancreas pumps out too much insulin and over time your cells especially in your muscle, fat, and liver STOP responding to all that insulin and become insulin resistant.

Insulin resistance and metabolic disease come from energy oversupply (eating too many calories and bad calories).

when energy intake exceeds metabolic needs so there’s a surplus, then carbohydrates in the form of sugars (e.g., fructose, sucrose, and glucose), drive the formation and accumulation of fat in the liver from something called de novo lipogenesis.

Can fatty liver be reversed? Yes

Important factors that govern energy disposal include the frequency and intensity of exercise and the activation of brown adipose tissue to an energy-consuming thermogenic phenotype.

Other factors than diet are infections (parasitic, bacterial, viral ..etc), stress, leaky Gut, pregnancies, gene mutations, thyroid issues, losing gallbladder, low stomach acid,..etc

Early symptoms of NAFLD: you may experience fatigue, weight loss, abdominal discomfort, weakness and confusion, Chemical/food intolerance, nausea, pain, fluid retention, mental issues, skin issues …etc

Excessive fat in your liver can cause damage to your liver cells called hepatocytes. Do something about it.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, I’ll be happy to help, so let’s restore your liver !” ❤️

Reduce your weight and watch what you eat.
