What happens when fat accumulates in the liver?

What happens when fat accumulates in the liver?

Liver is an important organ of the body, which not only helps to digest food but also helps to remove toxins from the body. The liver also stores energy in the form of glucose.

But due to bad routine and disordered eating, the problem of fat accumulation in the liver, i.e. 'fatty liver', has started to be seen in many people. Fat that accumulates in this way interferes with the functioning of the liver.

Fatty liver occurs when more than five percent of fat accumulates in the liver. Fatty liver problems can be reduced by improving lifestyle. There is no sign of it. However, if not treated on time, it can cause long-term and serious health problems. Akhilesh Kashyap says.

People who eat too much fatty and carbohydrate-rich food and do not exercise daily who are not physically active will start to see the problem of obesity. Along with the problem of obesity, fatty liver is also seen in such people, he says.

Previously, the problem of cirrhosis of the liver, which gradually dried up due to swelling of the liver and could not work, was caused by excessive consumption of alcohol and hepatitis B and C. But recently it has been found that the number of liver cirrhosis due to fatty liver has increased. Kashyap says.

Fatty liver may not show any symptoms in most people. But some may experience fatigue, discomfort or heaviness in the upper right side of the stomach, he says.


When fat accumulates in the liver, the functionality of the liver is completely affected and due to this, the liver does not work. Kashyap says that if it is not treated, the person suffering from it may develop the problem of 'liver cirrhosis'.

"During cirrhosis of the liver, the alimentary canal ruptures and bleeding from the mouth, fainting, swelling of the limbs due to lack of protein in the body, fluid in the stomach and increasing the problem of fatty liver can cause serious problems including cancer," he says.

How to avoid fatty liver?

Fatty liver and its complications can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle, reducing fat in food, and protecting the liver from infection. Similarly, one way to avoid fatty liver is to not drink alcohol.

If you have fatty liver due to obesity and unhealthy food, you should increase physical activity. Body fat should be reduced by exercising daily,' said Dr. Kashyap says.


There are different stages of fatty liver. After the first, second, third and fourth stage, if it reaches the stage of fibrosis and cirrhosis, there is no treatment for it. A liver transplant is necessary.

If there is only a fatty liver condition, it can be saved from reaching the condition of fibrosis and cirrhosis. For this, special attention should be paid to diet and daily exercise, Dr. Kashyap says, "If someone's liver function test does not come back normal, they have to take medicine."

Something to note

In order to prevent fat accumulation in the liver, you should eat foods that are low in fat and carbohydrates. Those with diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure problems can also suffer from this problem, so they should pay special attention to controlling diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.

In the initial stage of fatty liver, the patient does not show any symptoms. It was found that the patient has fatty liver due to some other health problem as per the doctor's advice during the CT scan. Therefore, people with obesity, cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure should have their health checked from time to time.

  1. I was diagnosed of HSV (Herpes) few years ago and my doctor told me there was no permanent cure for the disease. I was given medication to slow down the progress of the virus. At the initial stage it was not so bad till it progressed to a stage were i had difficulties going about my daily activities because i constantly felt pains in my penis, and around my genital were i had these blisters. I was totally devastated and i was even ashamed to complain to anyone. I saw a publication about a doctor called Dr.Water, and from what i read, he was using herbal medicines to cure illnesses like HERPES, Human papillomavirus, ALS, Diabetes, HIV, and so on. I opted to contacted him via email, after a few dicussion, i ordered for his medicine. He prepared the medicine and shipped it to me. When i received the herbal medicine, I took it according to his instructions. After using it as instructed, few weeks later i went to the hospital to have a blood test and the test came out negetive. To my greatest surprise, i was cured of this stubborn virus just by using a simple herbal product.
