Food Therapy: Coffee Intake In Reduced Risk and Progression of Liver Diseases

By Kyle J. Norton

Coffee intake regularly may have a profound effect on development and progression of liver disease, a recent study suggested.
Coffee, a popular and social beverage all over the world, particularly in the West, is a drink made from roasted bean from the Coffea plant, native to tropical Africa and Madagascar.

Liver disease is a class of conditions, including, irrhosis, or scarring of the liver, inflammatory viral liver disease.....

According to the joint study led by the Fortis Escorts Liver and Digestive Diseases, coffee consumption showed a strong effect in reduced risk of liver diseases caused by Hepatitis B and C, as well as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and alcoholic liver disease.

Among coffee drinkers and non drinker, in take of 2 cups or more of coffee attenuated risk  of fibrosis and cirrhosis in patients diagnosed with precondition of liver disease.

Furthermore, regular intake of coffee also demonstrated a significant decreased incidence of liver disease in high risk people, caused by altered liver enzymes (ALT, AST, and GGTP).

In a follow up study of 766 participants of the Hepatitis C Antiviral entered a Long-Term Treatment against Cirrhosis (HALT-C) trial with hepatitis C-related bridging fibrosis or cirrhosis on liver biopsy and failed to achieve a sustained virological response to peginterferon plus ribavirin treatment, researchers found that higher coffee consumption showed a significant in reduced progression of liver disease expressed with a  relative risk ratio of 1.11 (0.76-1.61) for less than 1 cup/day; 0.70 (0.48-1.02) for 1 to fewer than 3 cups/day; and 0.47 (0.27-0.85) for 3 or more cups/day (P-trend = 0.0003) in compared to non drinkers.

Regular coffee consumption was associated with lower rates of disease progression also reported a large prospective study in participants with advanced hepatitis C-related liver disease.

More importantly, the retrospective cross-sectional study on patients different ltypes of liver disease, including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, postulated that  drinking over 2 cups of coffee per day showed a lower liver stiffness in compared to non drinking group.

Interestingly, the effect of coffee in reduced stiffness may also contribute to less risk of fibrosis and inflammation, independent of disease state.

Taking together, there is no doubt that coffee intake may have a potential effect in reduced risk and progression of liver disease, depending to the numbers of cup of coffee consumption per day.
