Fatty Liver Disease and Diabetes

The most common cause of liver disease used to be alcohol, but now sugar consumption has proven to be the new villain.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) occurs when excess fat is stored in your liver.
Research now indicates that a fatty liver may also contribute to pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
And by the way, stick with me thru this video to the end, and I’ll direct you to a source for other great articles about health related topics.
The liver plays an important role in regulating the body’s blood sugar.
A buildup of fat in the liver prevents this vital organ from accepting the sugar thus causing blood sugar levels to rise higher and higher.
How do you know if you have a fatty liver?
People who store fat primarily in the belly are more prone to storing fat in their liver.
If you have a big belly and small hips, you are likely to be at a high risk for a fatty liver and diabetes.
Happily, there are ways to get the fat out of your liver including:
Exercise: Contracting muscles draw tremendous amounts of sugar from the bloodstream with the greatest effects during exercise and for up to 1 hour after.
Diet: Avoid foods that cause a high rise in blood sugar, especially sugar-added foods and sweetened drinks, including fruit juices.
