Sports often have a fatty liver

From the results of blood tests and body composition calculated to researchers, that more than a third of the 16,000 participants of the Nord-Trøndelag health study had a fatty liver that was not caused by alcohol. Not only obese people were affected, but also people who spent a lot of time in a Sitting position.

Whole, 36 percent of the participants in the Nord-Trøndelag health study had a non-alcohol-related fatty liver disease. This causes over a long period of time with no symptoms, but contributes to the development of type 2 Diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The only treatment is to lose eat a healthy diet and weight.

But that is not likely to be everything: The new results also show that the fitness level of a Person for the emergence of a fatty liver is also of great importance: participants with the lowest Fitness had a 17 – to 18-times higher probability for a fatty liver, and a 50 percent higher probability of premature death than those who were in the best physical shape. The results were similar in participants who sat more than seven hours and less than four hours per day.

It was also demonstrated that a sufficiently intense workout with a higher respiratory rate is necessary in order for a fatty liver to prevent. "Regular Training to improve Fitness, both for the prevention as well as for the treatment of fatty liver wichtig&quot diseases;, Ilaria Croci concludes from the Norwegian University of science and technology.
