What Fatty Liver Means

Updated: Apr 18, 2023

January is Love Your Liver Month.


Have you heard of fatty liver disease before and do you know what it means?


Did you know that it is not just something that effects heavy drinkers?


Did you also know that in it's early stages it can be reversed?

Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

Although this term relates to a range of conditions that effect the liver they are all caused by a build up of fat in the liver. It is usually associated with being over weight, poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle.


The early stages aren't harmful but if left unchecked it can progress and these progressions can lead to serious liver damage. Check out this blog for more information about the different stages of NAFLD.


The good news is that the early stages are not permanent and can be reversed - in other words you can reduce the amount of fat in your liver and significantly reduce your chances of it permenently damaging your liver.


What can I do?

Looking after your liver and reversing NAFLD is simple...reduce alcohol...eat healthy...exercise more. Follow these three steps and the fat in your liver will start to decrease.


Making big changes all at once can be daunting so start by making small but significant changes. Swap to skimmed milk instead of full fat, reduce or cut out sugar in your tea and coffee, go for diet or zero soda options, replace butter with low fat spread, take the stairs not the lift, park at the opposite end of the car park, park at the end of your street, change to light or non-alcoholic beer.


All the usual steps that are recommeneded that you take to improve your lifestyle and make it healthier are exactly the same steps you need to be making to help heal your liver.


So what's your first step going to be?
