Why is the liver important?

18.08.2016

The liver is the second largest organ in the human body, weighing about two kilograms and is located below the ribs on the right side of the abdomen.

The liver acts as a “factory”, performing many functions in the body. The liver processes everything you eat and drink and transforms them into energy and nutrients that your body can use. The liver also removes toxic substances from the blood and metabolize medicines that you take.

Fatty liver or steatosis

The disease called “fatty liver” is the accumulation of fat in liver cells.

Increasingly frequent in the modern world in which we live, the occurrence of fatty liver is not caused by excessive or prolonged alcohol intake, but is determined by obesity, high triglycerides, diabetes, drug hepatotoxicity, rapid weight loss, etc. They can cause non-alcoholic fatty liver, which resembles fatty liver caused by alcohol, only occurs in people who do not drink alcohol in excess.

Fatty liver diagnosis is made when the amount of fat in the liver exceeds 5% of its mass.

What happens when fat accumulates in the liver cells?

Liver cannot function properly and therefore disorders may occur in the body – fatigue, bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, bitter taste in the mouth, etc. – considering the multitude of functions that it fulfills.

But most often fatty liver (steatosis) does not give any symptoms, but even if it doesn’t hurt, it can evolve and cause problems later…

The greatest risk is related to developments that hepatic steatosis may have if no action is taken to keep it under control. Hepatic steatosis can progress to hepatitis (steatohepatitis) and even ultimately to cirrhosis. The good news is that the liver is the only organ that has the capacity to regenerate if the factor that affected it is removed and produced no permanent damage to liver cells.

What to do for this?

First aggressive factor must be stopped or reduced to a minimum, you have to adopt a healthy lifestyle, both in terms of diet and lifestyle (more exercise, less stress, relaxation exercises)

Prevention: Ways to prevent hepatic steatosis are:

  • Limit the amount of alcohol you drink
