Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis is an advanced form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is usually caused by a buildup of fats in the liver, inflammation and damage cued by this buildup leads to NASH, which can end up scarring the liver. This liver scarring is a potentially life-threatening issue known as cirrhosis.
NASH is actually very synonymous to people who are obese or overweight. Its major causes include diabetes, high cholesterol, a poor diet, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, underactive thyroid, and much more
Hepatocellular carcinoma is a cancer that begins from the liver. If caught early, the cancer can be easily cured with surgery or a transplant. However, more advanced cases can’t be cured, although the management of the disease is possible with proper treatment and support.
It’s also important that you get proper professionals- like Aligos Therapeutics- to help you with treating this disease
Here are a few causes of the disease:
Chronic hepatitis B or hepatitis C: Hepatocellular cancer can start a long time after a liver infection. Both are passed through infected body fluids like water and blood.
Cirrhosis: This happens when a liver cell is damaged and replaced. It can also be caused by various factors, such as too much iron in the liver, alcohol, and much more.
Heavy drinking: Constant and heavy drinking raises the risk of hepatocellular cancer. The more you drink, the more the risk.
