Many people may have seen the word "fatty liver" in their physical examination reports, and the incidence rate is extremely high and increasing year by year.
Fatty liver, as its name implies, is the accumulation of excessive fat in the liver. This is really a problem that bothers many friends. Usually, I don't feel anything, but I found the problem after a physical examination.
This has a lot to do with our daily eating habits, lifestyle, etc., which leads to excessive deposition of lipids in the liver, which will lead to fatty liver.
Under normal circumstances, fatty liver can be diagnosed if the amount of fat in the liver exceeds 5%. Generally, it is judged as mild fatty liver if the amount of fat is less than 10%, while the amount of fat between 10~25% is moderate fatty liver and more than 25% is severe fatty liver.
Although medically speaking, fatty liver is not an independent disease, but a pathological state of liver, just as the risk of diseases will increase for overweight people, people with fatty liver will have adverse effects on the normal function of liver, especially the long-term accumulation of a large amount of fat in liver cells may lead to fibrosis, which may eventually lead to liver cirrhosis, etc. Therefore, we should pay enough attention to fatty liver.
In order to alleviate and reverse fatty liver, we mainly rely on changing unhealthy lifestyle, paying attention to healthy diet, strengthening exercise and preventing abdominal obesity.
There are many articles and reports on the intervention effect of hydrogen on fatty liver. The results of Japanese animal experiments prove that hydrogen can significantly improve fatty liver induced by high-fat diet. Chinese scholars have also found that hydrogen water has an intervention effect on fatty liver. Let's follow Xiaona's classmates to see a clinical study of hydrogen water and fatty liver.
Clinical study of hydrogen intervention in patients with fatty liver;
The research paper was published in Clinics and Research in Hepatology and Gastroenterology, and its correspondent was Sergej M. Ostojic, a famous European researcher in hydrogen medicine.
The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of drinking hydrogen water for 28 days on liver fat deposition, body composition and biochemical indexes of patients with moderate and severe fatty liver and overweight. The subjects were 12 overweight patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, 5 males and 7 females. All subjects drank 1 liter of hydrogen water or placebo water every day for 28 days.
After 28 days of follow-up, MRI showed that hydrogen water can significantly reduce liver fat accumulation (P < 0.05 compared with placebo group). The content of liver fat decreased from 284.0±118.1mM to 256.5±108.3mM (change percentage 2.9%, 95% confidence interval 0.5 to 5.5). At the same time, the level of glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase in serum of patients who drank hydrogen-rich water decreased by 10%, indicating that liver function has recovered.
The results show that hydrogen water has a certain intervention effect on mild to moderate nonalcoholic fatty liver, or it can be used as an auxiliary intervention tool for nonalcoholic fatty liver. Of course, this also provides a safe and effective basis for larger clinical trials in the future.
Generally speaking, the intervention effect of drinking hydrogen-rich water on moderate to severe fatty liver in the study is still significant. We should know that the course of fatty liver is slow, and it is quite amazing that 28 days can produce relief effect.
