Diet plays a significant role in the functionality of the human body which is why poor diet management and monitoring has detrimental effects on an individual’s health. The increase in fat and sugar in western diets has had a tremendous impact on the health of society, with a subsequent rise in conditions such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension. Hidden in these conditions is a surge of Non-Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) – a form of liver damage that can remain unnoticed for long periods of time, sometimes until the damage can no longer be undone. Our research suggests that 1 in 3 people in the UK are affected by some form of liver damage, many of whom are completely unaware.
It's been long established that there is a correlation between Type 2 Diabetes and NAFLD, meaning people who suffer from insulin resistance may be at risk of developing NAFLD. Fortunately, a newly announced therapeutic method of treating insulin resistance has been found in the USA by Fractyl Laboratories which uses a minimally invasive intestinal procedural therapy that targets the root cause of NAFLD and Type 2 Diabetes. This method of treatment promises a scientifically sound and convenient alternative method of treating Type 2 Diabetes and NAFLD.
While scientific research continues to develop more robust methods of treating health conditions, we believe the sentiment 'prevention is better than cure' remains truer than ever. We recommend simple lifestyle adjustments to drastic measures. So, next time you are making a cup of coffee with sugar, just use a little less sugar or add little bit more fruits & vegetables to your daily diet. There are so many ways to adjust your lifestyle without compromising living life to the fullest.
