If fatty liver progresses to cirrhosis and liver failure, symptoms include:
– an enlarging, fluid-filled abdomen
– jaundice of the skin and eyes
– abnormal bleeding
- “Fatty liver” has become increasingly common in recent years due to the rising levels of obesity in the world.
As I’ve already stated, it now affects more than 2.1 BILLION PEOPLE.
That’s 1/3 of the entire world population!
So why is this so important to your health, and your life?
Well, what might surprise you is that your liver is the second most important organ in your body – after the brain.
It performs an incredible 800+ functions, including:
- Eliminating toxins from the body, like environmental pollutants, food additives, dead cells, alcohol, etc.
- Producing bile, which helps carry away waste and break down fats
- Storing and releasing glucose for energy
- Clearing the blood of harmful substances
- Resisting infections and removing bacteria from the bloodstream
- Clearing bilirubin (if there is a build-up of bilirubin, the skin and eyes turn yellow)
And much more, including regulating glucose, blood pressure, blood sugar, estrogen, testosterone, the immune system, and blood cholesterol production.
So what does this mean?
Quite simply, it means that if your liver isn’t functioning at 100%, you have ZERO chance of being healthy.
And that’s because a fatty liver causes INFLAMMATION, which impairs your liver’s ability to carry out its 800+ jobs in your body.
The more your liver is impaired, the unhealthier you become, and the more likely you are to contract a wide range of life-threatening diseases, such as liver failure, heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and much more.
That’s the simple and harsh truth.
