Steatohepatitis is a fatty liver disease caused by inflammation of the liver tissue accompanied by fat accumulation.
A most common form of steatohepatitis is non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), an advanced form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) that is not caused by excessive alcohol drinking.
Most cases of NASH if untreated can lead to liver scars or building up of scar over time, a condition of liver cirrhosis and one of the most common causes of liver cancer.
Most people with non-inflammatory-alcoholic fatty liver disease are asymptomatic, however, the inflammation caused by non-alcoholic steatohepatitis may induce liver damage, leading to a reduced function of the liver that orchestrates the onset of liver symptoms.
The most common symptoms are abdominal swelling, enlarged blood vessels just beneath the skin's surface, enlarged spleen, red palms, and jaundice.
People with steatohepatitis have been associated with the increased risk of liver failure and liver cancer, due to excessive formation of liver scar tissues, epidemiologically.
According to the statistics, fatty liver affects approximately 25% of the general population worldwide. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), is very common in overweight persons.
Some researchers suggested that people who are viral hepatitis carriers are also at risk of steatohepatitis.
On finding a potential phytochemical for the treatment of liver diseases, researchers examined the ω-3-acid ethyl ester prescription Lovaza effects on acute steatohepatitis.
* In vivo, administration of CMPF to mice before or after high-fat diet feeding at exposures equivalent to those observed in humans increased whole-body lipid metabolism, improved insulin sensitivity, increased beta-oxidation, reduced lipogenic gene expression, and ameliorated steatosis.
* CMPF upregulated the expression of FGF21, which is required for long-term steatosis protection.
Taken altogether, Omega-3 fatty acids may be considered a functional food for the prevention and treatment of acute steatohepatitis, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
Intake of Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of supplements should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
