With NAFLD the liver cannot breakdown the fats it has derived from the blood leading to a buildup of fats and your liver getting enlarged.

NAFLD is quite common and what causes it includes the following;

  • Thyroid disorders
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Age
  • Some medications
  • Genetics
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • High cholesterol
  • Poor diet and/or malnutrition
  • High triglycerides

NASH or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis is when you are diagnosed with both damage to your liver and inflammation. It is estimated that 2 to 5% of Americans have NASH.

Fructose causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, so you need to get rid of this form of sugar that can be found in high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as well as fruit juice.

It is also found in honey and agave syrup, when it is taken in excess it is dangerous. 

This form of sugar acts like alcohol and can damage the liver as only the liver can metabolize it.

Scientists like Dr. Robert Lustig of the University of California believe that fructose is so similar to its effects on the liver like alcohol and it is metabolized into fat just like alcohol instead into cellular energy as in the case of glucose.

Excessive Fructose Leads To NAFLD

Excessive consumption of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) for example leads to NAFLD.

NAFLD causes inflammation and oxidative stress as a result of the inflammatory properties of fructose which causes uric acid formation when the transient ATP a chemical storage form of energy is depleted.

The fructose will raise the uric acid and cells that lack energy because they are drained of their energy become inflamed and prone to oxidative stress damage.

The link between uric acid and fructose ingestion cannot be overemphasised.

Sugary Drinks Causes NAFLD

Taking sugary beverages will increase the fructose in the body. Drinks like lemonade, soda, fruit punch and fruit juice will increase your risk of NAFLD.
