Let's talk liver

There is an epidemic of NASH: Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, a.k.a Fatty Liver Disease. It now causes more case of Cirrhosis of the Liver than are cased by hepatitis-B or C. This is serious business, and we need to take it seriously! If your liver enzymes (AST and ALT) are even slightly elevated, YOU are at risk.

What can you do? First, see your doctor and get your liver enzymes checked: yearly if you're generally healthy, and more often if you are overweight, obese, have diabetes, a poor diet or do not exercise.

How can you prevent Fatty Liver Disease? Keep your diet healthy (ask how), keep your hemoglobin A11C (HbA1C) below 5.7%, keep your fasting insulin level below 10, keep your triglyceride level below 150, get 20+ min of non-stop activity every day, keep your body mass index below 28. Problems with that? Call me.
