For people suffering from fatty liver, it is very important to pay attention to diet and recognize the dangers of fatty liver. The development process of liver disease is fatty liver, cirrhosis, then liver cancer. If the fatty liver is not controlled, it will progress to liver cirrhosis, ascites, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, cancer, etc., which will lead a serious threat to the life and health of the patient.
Direct damage to the liver
If fatty liver disease fails to receive effective treatment for a long time, a large amount of fat accumulates in the liver, causing repeated diffuse degeneration and necrosis of liver cells over time, causing the liver to shrink and harden, and eventually lead to various malignant liver diseases such as cirrhosis.
Affect digestive function.
After suffering from fatty liver, it affects the production and secretion of bile, which will affect the function of the digestive system, causing symptoms such as anorexia, and abdominal distension and nausea after eating.
Damage to the heart and brain blood vessels
Fatty liver patients are usually accompanied by abnormal blood lipids. Cholesterol is easy to deposit on the blood vessel wall, causing the blood vessel wall to thicken and harden, the blood vessel cavity becomes narrow, the elasticity decreases, and finally atherosclerosis is formed.
Harm to reproductive health
Patients with fatty liver, especially those with steatohepatitis, have relatively high levels of estrogen in men and have obvious female sexual characteristics, and women with increased levels of male hormones in their bodies can easily cause hirsutism, irregular menstruation, infertility, etc.
Harmful to eyes
Because of the obesity of fatty liver patients, most of them have snoring and poor sleep, which reduces the blood flow to the liver and brain, which affects the function of the liver, so the eyes are dry and uncomfortable, and the vision is reduced.
