Dr Rashmi Rathi, General Physician says that fatty liver disease is becoming quite common in present times and the matter of concern is that cases of this disease are increasing not only in adults but also in children.
A recent research regarding fatty liver disease has revealed that including vitamin B12 and folate in the diet can not only prevent this problem but also prevent the disease. Its consumption can be beneficial even in the state of being. Vitamin b12 and folate benefit in fatty liver disease says journal of hepatology.
Consumption of a high-fat or fat-rich diet is generally believed to be responsible for fatty liver disease. But for the occurrence of this disease, apart from the consumption of unhealthy diet, many other health related problems and reasons can also be responsible, such as (obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypothyroidism, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, genetic reasons or blood fat rise). ) obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypothyroidism, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, genetic causes or increased fat in the blood, etc.
But a recent research has revealed that the lack of certain nutrients in the body can also lead to this disease. In a recent study published in the Journal of Hepatology, researchers have reported that deficiency of elements such as vitamin B12 and folate in the body can cause non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
It has been told in research that by increasing the amount of these nutrients in the diet, not only can the possibility of this problem be reduced, but even if this disease occurs, these nutrients can help in relieving this problem.
What is fatty liver disease: Dr Rashmi Rathi, General Physician, Delhi’s General Physician, tells that at present, fatty liver disease is becoming quite common and there is a matter of concern.
It is that cases of this disease are increasing not only in adults but also in children. For this, the hectic life, bad habits related to eating and drinking and sleeping and waking, and increasing stress and mental instability in people can be considered. That’s why it is also called lifestyle disease. Significantly, in this problem, excess fat starts to build up and accumulate in the liver.
Dr. Rashmi (Dr. Rashmi Rathi) says that although there is not much damage to the liver in the relatively less serious condition of simple fatty liver disease. But if by recognizing the symptoms of this disease on time and not adopting the right treatment or the necessary regimens prescribed by the doctor, then serious damage can be done to the liver. Even at times, the sufferer may have problems like liver cirrhosis, liver damage, even liver cancer (liver cirrhosis, liver damage, liver cancer). Which can be fatal at times.
She explains that although this problem is also called silent disease because usually in the early stages of the problem, there are not many symptoms of this disease. And by the time the symptoms become more visible, the problem starts to take a serious form. Usually, as the effect of this problem increases, people get abdominal pain, swelling in the upper part of the stomach, loss of appetite, not digesting food properly, constant weight loss, feeling weak and tired, confusion and vomiting and Symptoms such as nausea may be seen. Significantly, there are two types of fatty liver disease.
- Alcoholic fatty liver disease: In this condition, excessive consumption of alcohol causes damage to the liver.
- Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: This condition is mainly caused by unhealthy eating habits such as eating too much fried food or excessive consumption of saturated fats and trans fats and bad sleep-wake habits and diseases or problems. Due to which the liver is damaged.
What does the new research say:In this recent research done on fatty liver disease, researchers have emphasized that the abundance of certain nutrients, especially vitamin B12 and folate, in the diet can go a long way in relieving this disease. Researchers have reported in research findings that these nutrients can be very helpful in reducing liver inflammation and improving the effects of liver damage caused by the disease. According to him, in this problem, when a large amount of fat starts accumulating in the liver, then due to it serious wounds start in the liver, while the size of the liver also starts increasing. Apart from this, at times there may also be a deficiency of a protein called Syntaxin 17 in the body, due to which inflammation in the liver can also increase. This protein actually helps in managing or reducing the fat stored in the liver and in maintaining proper digestion and metabolism. At the same time, due to the deficiency of this protein, there is also trouble in cleaning the damaged cells of the liver, due to which the effects of the disease can increase and become serious. Vitamin B12 and folate increase the amount of this protein in the body, which reduces liver inflammation and wounds, and this problem can be relieved.
