Things that damage your liver: Sugar, Herbal Supplements, Excess weight, Excess Vitamin A, Soft drinks, Acetaminophen, Trans Fats, and even moderate alcohol. Now what ?
Dr. Scumpia Says:
1.Fatty liver is the rapidly becoming the leading cause of cirrhosis ( end stage liver disease which can lead to the need for a liver transplant )
2. Do not ignore your doctor’s advice to lose weight and exercise when you are told to do so thinking that it is only a little fat in the liver
3. This “ little fat “ can be very damaging without proper treatment and follow up and can be the first sign to other metabolic problems like prediabetes, diabetes, high cholesterol and underlying heart plaque
