Fatty hepatosis

Fatty hepatosis is the accumulation of fat in the liver cells, which is often a reaction of the liver to all kinds of intoxications (toxic effects).

The reasons

The main causes of fatty liver are:

  • alcohol abuse,
  • diabetes mellitus combined with obesity,
  • obesity,
  • cushing’s syndrome
  • myxedema,
  • unbalanced diet (protein deficiency),
  • chronic diseases of the digestive system with malabsorption syndrome,
  • exposure to toxic substances.


Patients with fatty hepatosis usually do not complain. The course of the disease is erased, slowly progressing. Over time, constant dull pains are found in the right hypochondrium, there may be nausea, vomiting, stool disorders.


The doctor-therapist can suspect fatty degeneration already during a clinical examination by an increase in the liver in volumes during palpation of the abdomen. Liver enlargement is confirmed by abdominal ultrasound. In a biochemical blood test, an increase in liver enzymes (AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase) is detected. In some cases, CT, MRI, liver biopsy are performed to confirm the diagnosis.


Traditional medicine of the whole world, in the treatment of fatty hepatosis, hepatomegaly and cirrhosis of the liver, offers drug, substitution and syndromic therapy, which can slightly improve the patient’s well-being, but inevitably leads to the progression of diseases, since any presence of chemicals in a person’s blood has a detrimental effect on altered liver.

However, proper nutrition, refusal of alcohol, correction of metabolic disorders, as a rule, lead to an improvement in the condition.
