Fatty liver is a serious disease in which fat accumulates around the liver. If not treated at the right time, fatty liver can gradually turn into liver cirrhosis and then liver cancer. Due to the constant accumulation of fat, the outer part of the liver becomes thick and its cells begin to harden. This liver disease is considered dangerous. However, the risk of fatty liver is higher for those who eat junkfoods, cold drinks, soda or alcohol, and eat a high fat diet. A recent research suggests that fatty liver problems surround skinny people more quickly. Scientists have also given the reason for this.
Metabolism of thin people weak
It is generally believed that obese people with fatty liver disease are more, because they have extra fat in the body. But after a recent research, scientists have said that thin people are less prone to fatty liver disease, but if they do not pay attention to food, then they come sooner than obese people. According to Professor Jacob George of the Westmead Institute for Medical Research, Australia, “Metabolism of the body of lean people is weaker than those who are in good health. That is why they are more likely to have fat deposits around their liver is.”
What causes fatty liver in thin people?
It has been published in the Research Journal of Hepatology. In this research, it has been reported that the liver of lean people makes small amounts of bile juice, which affects the digestion and fat is not fully digested. Due to this, a certain type of protein also starts to grow which is called fibroblast growth factor-19 (FGF19). This is the reason that such people are thin and thin and have a high risk of fatty liver.
