The traditional medical system has been unable to develop any solution for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).
So, they have started to wonder if it is perhaps genetic. This would be frustrating, because then there would be little we could do about it.
But a study published in the Journal of Hepatology actually reveals that there is a difference between the genetic and heritable conditions. And there lies the solution to healing NAFLD.
Through a large study in Swedish pathology departments where liver biopsies were performed, a group of researchers managed to obtain information on 165 people born between 1992 and 2016 who had been diagnosed with NAFLD based on these biopsies.
The researchers then matched each of these young people with approximately five people from the general population based on age and sex to create a control group of 717 subjects. Just over 60% of them were male, with an average age of 12.
They then obtained body mass index and other health data on the patients’ mothers from the Swedish Medical Birth Register.
With this information, the researchers found a clear relationship between maternal body mass index and the children’s NAFLD status. They compared kids from all of the groups to those of normal-weight women.
1. The kids of underweight women were 16% less likely to have NAFLD.
2. The kids of overweight women were 51% more likely to have NAFLD.
3. The kids of obese women were 326% more likely to have NAFLD.
4. Severe NAFLD, characterized by liver fibrosis or cirrhosis, was 94% more likely among the children of overweight women and 367% more likely among the children of obese women.
This shows that a mother’s weight can more than triple her child’s risk of NAFLD.
But this doesn’t mean that NAFLD is genetic. It’s more likely that children adopt the same eating habits as their parents, and therefore gain liver fat.
But if you’ve already been diagnosed with NAFLD, the only thing that matters is to reverse it as soon as possible. Fortunately, it’s quite easy to clear your liver of fat using the simple lifestyle changes explained here…
And if you’re overweight and have tried diets and exercises with no results, you may be missing the “third element of weight loss”. Many readers have gone from obese to normal weight in weeks by addressing this “third element”—even when everything else has failed…
