Fatty Liver Treatment

Fatty liver disease is the build-up of excess fat in the liver cells. It is a common liver complaint in Western countries. The disease affects about one in every 10 people. It is normal for the liver to contain some fat, but if fat accounts for more than 10% of the liver’s weight, then you have fatty liver and you may develop more serious complications.

Fatty liver can progress through four stages:

  • Cirrhosis – Scarring of the liver has become widespread, impairing the liver’s ability to function. This is the most severe stage and is irreversible.
  • Simple fatty liver – There’s a buildup of excess fat in the liver. Simple fatty liver is largely harmless if it doesn’t progress.
  • Fibrosis – Persistent inflammation in the liver has now caused scarring. Conversely, the liver can still generally function normally.
  • Steatohepatitis – Moreover to excess fat, there’s also inflammation in the liver.

Causes of Fatty Liver Disease


Fat accumulates in liver cells when a person has fatty liver disease. The causes of this fat accumulation are numerous.

It is possible to develop AFLD if you drink too much alcohol. A lot of alcohol can alter the metabolism of the liver. The liver can accumulate certain types of fat when these metabolic products combine with fatty acids. The cause of the fatty liver disease is less clear in people who do not drink a lot of alcohol. For these people, it may be that their bodies produce too much fat or do not metabolize fat effectively.

One or more of the following factors may play a role in people who don’t consume much alcohol and develop fatty liver disease:

Other potential causes of fatty liver include:

  • Certain rare genetic conditions
  • Pregnancy
  • Some types of infections, such as hepatitis c
  • Side effects from some types of medications

Treatment for Fatty Liver Disease

Diet and exercise are the usual treatments for fatty liver disease, whether it’s caused by alcohol or not. Generally, foods that fight cell damage, enable the body to use insulin more easily, or reduce inflammation can aid in reversing the condition. It’s best to consult your doctor for an eating plan that’s right for you because every person is different.

Using HCG

HCG Diet

Implementing lifestyle changes can help people with the fatty liver disease reduce and manage their symptoms. Using HCG may help you with the disease. HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone pregnant women excrete in their urine after developing it in the placenta. HCG diet involves eating only 500 calories per day and getting daily injections. HCG works with the hypothalamus in such a way that when calorie intake is cut, our bodies are forced to make up the difference by consuming fat stores.  This allows the body to aggressively burn fat while sparing muscle and not harming metabolism.
