Fatty liver (fatty liver), is the accumulation of fat in liver cells. This condition can cause disruption in liver function so that the risk of causing complimation is cirrhosis of the liver. In severe fatty liver, liver fat can reach 50-60% of total liver weight.
Based on the cause, fatty liver is divided into 2 big groups. First is fatty alcoholic liver (alcoholic fatty liver disease = AFLD) which is abundant in
get in western countries. Both non-alcoholic (Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease = NAFLD) are mostly found in areas that consume less alcohol,
including Indonesia. Symptoms of fatty liver are generally only in the form of discomfort or no appetite, even in some cases there are no symptoms.
Handling fatty liver through eating between them is to reduce body weight, reduce carbohydrates to 40-45% of total calories, reduce fat to <30% with saturated fatty acids <10%, it is better if you consume only vegetables and fruits, and exercise routine.
Other supplementary dietary supplements such as omega 3, vitamin E, green tea extracts, caffeine, ginger, garlic, and probiotics may theoretically benefit patients with fatty liver.
