Carb restricted diets could lead to improved treatments for NAFLD

Carb restricted diets could lead to improved treatments for NAFLD

Science has made another important discovery. A diet that restricts the consumption of carbohydrates can actually help battle fatty liver disease.  The details of the study were published last month and they reveal how a diet that cuts down carbs can improve metabolism and help with the fight against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). 

The study was conducted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology's SciLifeLab research center.  They got their results by combining clinical and big data analysis to help determine changes in metabolism and gut bacteria. This data was collected from 10 subjects with high-fat liver and obesity on a two-week diet.  After that time, the subjects showed a significant reduction of liver fat and other cardiovascular risks. 

As a next step, scientists connected the reduction of carbohydrates to the reduction of liver fat and other substances responsible also for hepatic conditions.  

What is a Fatty Liver?

The human liver usually has normal amounts of fat in it.  But many people walk around with an unusually large amount of fat in their livers.  It is not contagious and it is not caused by the consumption of alcohol. When the liver has unusually large deposits of fat in it, it is a condition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Patients with NAFLD usually have metabolic issues, which leads us to think that NAFLD is caused by eating too much or it is caused by eating too much of the wrong thing.  

How do Carbohydrates "Help"?

Carbohydrates are usually found in the body in the form of sugars, namely glucose, which is the most important molecule used by the body to make energy.  The overconsumption of sugar and carbohydrates can help predispose the liver to accumulate excessive amounts of triglycerides. 

When we consume carbs, the body will rapidly find a way to put it to work.  If there is an excess of carbs left, even after the body has sought to find uses for it, the body will actually turn that excessive sugar into glycogen, which is stored in the muscles and the liver.
