Why You Should Know About Fatty Liver Disease

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease can be a problem for people with diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes. Learn more about this growing condition. Fatty liver disease is an “underappreciated problem that seems to be getting worse,” according to Mitch Lazar, MD, PhD, chief of the division of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. For many years physicians believed that fatty liver was a benign condition but in 1980 non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was designated a real condition. “Fortunately with increasing knowledge and research on the disease, there is a growing awareness,” says Dina Halegoua-Demarzio, MD, director of the Fatty Liver Center at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, also located in Philadelphia. “More awareness of the problem in doctors and patients will enable early intervention that can prevent cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer.” It’s a particular issue for people with type 2 diabetes.

    I went to a diabetes support group meeting yesterday and I was told by the dietician that 100 carbs. a day was as low as you should go, but she said you should not even go that low. I think you have to try different amounts and find out what works for you. You also have to take into consideration your stress level, amount of sleep, time between your meals, exercise, etc. that can effect your bs numbers. Some days I'll eat the same thing for a meal, but my numbers are completely different. My morning readings are always more than my night readings, by 30 sometimes!

    Thanks for this thread, I have read most of it and I have conformation if what I have found. My dietician said to eat 130-150 gr. carbs everyday. I can't eat that much or my bs is way too high. I've been shooting for 60-80 per day and my bs has been much lower. I eat limited carb foods, mostly vegetables. Ive been a diabetic 20 years and I feel like I'm finally getting the advice I need to live (but it's not coming from my endocrinologist or dietician). My question is what is the lowest carbs you should eat each day?

    Try Team KETO. They are a great support group for those of us eating low carb, high fat.
