A mysterious liver disease affects one out of every third Russian

Not alcohol is the leading factors that destroy the human liver. In first place was "the disease of invisibility", which doctors call non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Up to 40% of the population have similar changes in the largest gland of the body.

In Europe this indicator does not exceed 10-25%. Note that the fatty disease is a pretty serious deviation from the norm, is able to bring the entire body down. The fatty disease can be attributed to the initial form of cirrhosis or pre-cancerous state, when the physician can no longer guarantee a low risk of cancer.

The excess fatty tissue in the body triggers inflammation and fibrosis, the replacement of healthy connective tissue constrictions that prevent normal circulation of bile in the liver. In some instances NAFLD can lead to death, even if one never drank alcohol.
