How to Detox A Fatty Liver

When we think about people who have liver problems, we automatically assume it’s because they drink too much, but that’s not always true. The nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is now the most common cause of chronic liver disease in the U.S. People who are overweight and have excess fat in the liver are often diagnosed with a fatty liver. These are people that eat a lot of fried, processed food, and that drink little or no alcohol.

Over time, if you don’t take care of your liver, it can enlarge and cause permanent liver damage. Cirrhosis happens when the liver enlarges and over time liver cells are replaced by scar issue.  When your liver doesn’t work right, that’s when you can develop more serious damage and it can cause liver failure and even liver cancer. This is a big problem in the Hispanic community and especially in Hispanic children that are obese or overweight.
