What is N.A.S.H.?

Published on August 11, 2010

NASH (nonalcoholicsteatohepatits) is often a “silent” liver disease. It resembles alcoholic liver disease, but occurs in people who drink little or no alcohol. The major feature of NASH is fat in the liver, along with inflammation and dammage. Most people who have NASH feel well and not aware they have a liver problem. However, NASH can lead to liver cirrhosis.

NASH is becoming more common,possibly due to the increasing numbers of the population who are obese or morbidly obese. In the past 10 years, the amount of adults who are obese have doubled, and the amount of children who are obese have tripled!

At this time, NASH ranks as one of the major causes of liver cirrhosis in America, right behind hepatits and alcoholic liver disease.
While there are currently no specific treatments for NASH, people with this diagnosis should reduce their weight, follow a balanced diet, increase activity and avoid alcohol and unnecessary medications. Weight loss may improve the liver tests in people with NASH, and may sometimes reverse the disease to some extent.

NASH is a little known condition of morbid obesity, which can lead to liver dammage,cirrhosis, and early death
