Eliminating fatty liver disease through ayurvedic medicine Kamalahar

As our belly expands, fat also piles up in our liver, and this fat could clog the liver, causing a state of malfunction. The liver is the metabolic factory of the body, so a clogged liver certainly spells trouble. Poor liver function could set off health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and metabolic conditions.

Among the spectrum of metabolic diseases resulting from poor function of the liver are diabetes, hypertension and fatty liver. Fatty liver disease is a term used to describe a build-up of excess fat in the liver cells. Fat build-up in the liver could result in dangerous health consequences, such as liver inflammation, liver tissue scarring (fibrosis), and even liver cancer.

While heavy drinkers are more likely to end up having lots of fat deposits in the liver, teetotallers or casual drinkers are not exempt from this scourge. People who drink little or no alcohol, and have no history of alcoholism, can develop a liver condition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

In the 1980s, medical experts discovered liver lesions – commonly caused by alcohol abuse – in patients who had never been significant consumers of alcohol. Their liver biopsies showed that they had fatty livers, similar to that of alcoholics. This phenomenon, now known as NAFLD, occurred mostly in people who were diabetic or obese.

Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease are becoming more common around the world. Ultimately, both variations of fatty liver disease are two roads that head towards the same destination, which is liver tissue scarring or fibrosis. The development of fibrosis marks the connection between fatty liver disease and end-stage liver disease.

The prevalence of NAFLD is disturbingly high around the world. In Western countries, NAFLD affects between 15% and 30% of the general adult population. In Japan, the incidence of NAFLD is believed to range from 18% to 30%, and about 14% in Thailand. NAFLD is becoming a common problem in the South-East Asian region, due to modern lifestyle factors such as a diet high in fructose corn syrup and fat, as well as physical inactivity. Popular fast food joints, for instance, are now just as easily available here in South-East Asia as they are in the West.

The rising incidence of diabetes and obesity, especially in Malaysia, contributes to the prevalence of NAFLD. Diabetics who have poor blood sugar control are at an increased risk of developing fatty liver disease. Those who are overweight or obese, and have high blood cholesterol, also have the tendency to accumulate fat in the liver. This will affect the cells, as well as impede liver function.

Often, the symptoms of liver disease are not obvious, and are often dismissed as tiredness, or a general feeling of being unwell. Most patients do not show many visible symptoms, and NAFLD is usually discovered incidentally when doctors discover abnormal liver function test readings, or find an enlarged liver in the course of looking for something unrelated.

Many researches have shown that alternative medicines can help to improve or even correct, health conditions brought about by fatty liver disease.

Ayurvedic medicine Kamalahar is composed of herbal ingredients which are very effective in treatment of liver disorder including fatty liver.
