2. What is fatty liver disease?
The cells of the liver accumulate abnormally increased amounts of fat is called Fatty Liver condition.
- Alcoholic fatty liver :- excessive consumption of alcohol is a very common cause of fatty liver.
- Non alcoholic fatty liver disease :- there is another form of fatty liver, in which alcohol has been excluded as a cause.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a manifestation of an abnormality of metabolisim within the liver.
Work of Liver :- The liver is an important organ in the metabolisim and handling of fat. The liver makes and exports fat to other parts of the body. It also removes fat from the blood that has been released by other tissues in the body.
In non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, the handling of fat by liver cells is disturbed.
Reason :- Increased amounts of fat are removed from the blood and/or are produced by liver cells, and not enough is disposed of or exported by the cells. As a result, fat accumulates in the liver.
Two Types of Fatty Liver :- Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is classifiedas Isolated Fatty liver or IFL or NonAlcoholic SteatoHepatitis (NASH). In both isolated fatty liver and NASH there is an abnormal amount of fat in the liver cells, but, in addition, in NASH there is inflammation within the liver, and, as a result, the liver cells are damaged, they die, and are replaced by scar tissue.
