Does Fatty Liver Always Progress to Liver Disease Symptoms?


As the name suggests, liver disease symptoms are obviously more advanced than fatty liver, although in some cases fatty liver can be the beginning stages of more advanced liver disease. In other cases, people can have fatty liver for years and never progress to liver disease symptoms. 

Most people think of liver disease such as cirrhosis of the liver in relation to alcoholism, and although this is indeed one of the most common causes, it is not the only cause. Of course, things like drug addiction (of both prescription drugs as well as illegal drugs), viruses like hepatitis, autoimmune diseases, as well as heavy concentrations of environmental toxins and years of following poor nutritional diets heavy in processed foods, chemical food additives, preservatives and pesticides will also overload the liver until it has no choice but to end up developing liver disease symptoms. Diabetes also increases the risk of developing liver disease symptoms.

Some of the more common liver disease symptoms are:

  • Jaundice
  • Anemia
  • Poor digestion
  • Vomiting (may include blood in vomit)
  • Nausea
  • Fluid build up in the abdominal cavity (called ascites)
  • Bloating or distended abdomen
  • Diarrhea
  • Light coloured stools (caused by blockage of bile, called cholestasis)
  • Itching
  • Thirst (excessive)
  • Frequent and excessive urination
  • High blood pressure in the portal vein
  • Liver enlargement
  • Alcoholic hepatitis (inflammation of the liver)
  • Hepatitis
  • Alcoholic cirrhosis (destruction of liver tissue)

The early stages of liver disease may not present many symptoms or they are very subtle or may be mistaken for other diseases and conditions. As the disease progresses, the symptoms become more apparent. (Some of the above symptoms are "end stage" liver disease.)

Liver disease treatments

Fatty liver or early stages of liver disease will respond favourably to treatments, but once the liver disease has progressed, treatments may not be effective. Of course, "end stage" liver disease is not treatable and would require liver transplant for recovery. There is on-going research all the time in developing new treatments for various liver diseases. If you do have the above liver disease symptoms, talk to your physician to find out about diagnosis and what would be suitable in your case.

Prevention and supporting your liver before it progresses to these stages are the best treatments ... an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

The NEW  "Fatty Liver Detox Program" outlines many tips to support your liver ... alleviating symptoms of Fatty Liver and Impaired Liver Function, which in turn, helps to improve your health and lose weight in the process.

What is Liver Detox?

One of the main jobs of the liver is to detoxify the body of toxins and unhealthy substances.  In the process of doing this job the liver can become overloaded.  A liver detox is a way of "cleansing" the liver and supporting it so that it can work more efficiently.  There are many ways of doing a liver detox, including fasting and juice fasting, drinking "detox" smoothies and herbal teas, and taking supplements that are known to support the liver. 

My recommendation would be to do a liver detox in a safe and liver supportive fashion by increasing the amount of water you drink and eliminating processed foods and processed meats from your diet.  As a matter of fact, I believe that detoxifying your body and liver is so important to your overall health that I wrote a new e-book outlining a safe and easy detoxification program that will not only improve your health, but will also "kick-start" your liver and elimination organs to help you to eliminate fluid retention and toxins and fire your liver up to be a fat-burner again.
