People suffering from diabetes always have liver problems. Let us know what is fatty liver, how dangerous it is, what are its symptoms.

Fatty liver disease has become quite common in today's time. According to the National Health Portal, 9 to 32 percent of people in India may have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. There are some warning signs of this silent disease, which are not visible in the beginning and come to the fore only after the problem progresses. You will learn about those symptoms in the article. Fatty liver disease is a disease in which too much fat accumulates in the cells of the liver. This disease has become quite common in today's time. It has been told in a report that today 1 out of every 3 people is facing this disease. Due to this disease, the liver is not able to work properly and many problems start to occur. Many people believe that only those who consume more alcohol etc. have to face this problem, whereas it is not so. People who do not drink alcohol can also get this disease.

But it would not be wrong to say that people who consume alcohol in excess, this problem is seen more in those people. People who have never consumed alcohol, this problem is also seen in them and there can be many reasons for this. Such as: high cholesterol level, diabetes, sleep apnea, underactive thyroid etc. In most of the cases, the disease is not detected in the beginning. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a condition that is not caused by alcohol, but it can worsen if alcohol is consumed in such a situation. Says Pamela Healy, Chief Executive Officer of the British Liver Trust It is that many people do not even know that increasing human weight can also increase the risk of fatty liver. Liver is an important organ like the heart, but people do not try to keep it healthy at all.

Many myths are also spread about the liver. For example, many people believe that liver disease occurs in people who consume alcohol. But apart from this, there are some people who do not consume alcohol but still they are at risk of fatty liver disease due to increased weight.
Symptoms not visible in the beginning
Every human has some amount of fat in the liver, but as the amount of fat in the liver increases, it increases the risk of high blood pressure, kidney problems and diabetes.
In the beginning, there are no symptoms of fatty liver disease, but if it is not controlled then serious symptoms can appear. After this, it can turn into a more serious condition called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH, in which the liver becomes very inflamed. As time passes, this inflammation starts affecting both the blood vessels and the liver. The normal person may not even know that a problem has arisen in his liver.

According to the National Health Service, if someone has a problem of fatty liver disease, then these symptoms can be seen in them.

Experts say that to avoid this disease, it is very important to make lifestyle changes first. Professor Jonathan Fallowfield, head of liver research at the University of Edinburgh, says patients with non-alcoholic fatty disease will increase from 5 percent to 7 percent by 2030. Most people do not know that they have fatty liver disease. These are often people who look thin from outside but have fat on their liver. Fat accumulates around their stomach and fatigue also starts.
