Diet Tips to Help Combat Fatty Liver Disease


Fatty liver disease can fall into 2-categories – alcohol and non-alcohol related, and the disease as a whole affects up to 33-percent of U.S. adults “and is one of the leading contributors of liver failure,” explains Healthline.com.

You might not associate drinking coffee with improving health conditions (too much caffeine can be a risk), but Healthline explains that studies show consumption of coffee can limit the damage from fatty liver disease compared to those who abstain from coffee.

The source explains that coffee can “lower abnormal liver enzymes” of people who are at risk of developing more serious liver disease.
