Treatment solutions of NAFLD and NASHD: Steatohepatitis and Nonalcoholic fatty liver diseases
Losing excess weight is the best for treatment solution for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFAD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis diseases (NASHD). In one of the studies it was established that among obese individuals with elevated transaminases, weight gain led to an increase in the level of the liver enzymes. The good news is that even with a minimal weight loss of 10% can impact significantly to the decrease in the levels of the enzymes even to the point of being normal. The decrease in enzymes happened at the rate of 8% for every 1% loss of body weight. In another study where patients undergoing stomach (gastric) reduction operations for morbid obesity were involved, substantial weight loss is accompanied by a marked reduction in transaminases and a regression (improvement) of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Treatment solutions of NAFLD and NASHD: The use of certain medication
Besides the weight loss, medical professionals are also using certain medications to treat nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Like for instance, insulin-sensitizing agents, like:
- The thiazolidinedione’s
- Pioglitazone (Actos)
- Rosiglitazone (Avandia)
- Metformin (Glucophage)
These medications do not only help to control blood glucose in patients with diabetes, but they also improve enzyme levels in patients with Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Remember that medications in the statin class of drugs like atorvastatin/Lipitor decrease the bad LDL cholesterol and, improve enzyme levels among patients with atorvastatin. However a lot more needs to be done to establish the accuracy of these medications if they can also reduce the amount of fat and inflammation in the liver.
