WELLNESS WEDNESDAY – “13 Alarming Biomarkers: Uncover Your Risk for Fatty Liver Disease in 10 Minutes and Transform Your Health Today”
Hi everyone, it’s Dr B Jagadish here, your Diabetes Wellbeing Coach. I’m excited to bring you today’s live video on the topic of fatty liver disease and the top biochemical markers to look out for.
As we all know, fatty liver disease is a serious condition that can lead to complications like diabetes, high blood pressure, and even liver failure. But the good news is that it can be reversible with the right lifestyle changes and management.
So, let’s dive into the top biochemical markers to be aware of.
1. Elevated liver enzymes. These enzymes help to break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the body. When they are elevated, it could be a sign of liver damage.
2. High levels of triglycerides. These are a type of fat found in the blood and high levels can indicate a fatty liver.
3. Low levels of high-density lipoprotein, or “good” cholesterol. This is the type of cholesterol that helps to remove excess fats from the body. Low levels can be a sign of a fatty liver.
4. High levels of low-density lipoprotein, or “bad” cholesterol. This type of cholesterol can build up in the liver and contribute to fatty liver disease.
5. Elevated levels of alanine aminotransferase, or ALT. This enzyme is found in the liver and high levels can indicate liver damage.
6. Elevated levels of aspartate aminotransferase, or AST. Like ALT, this enzyme is also found in the liver and high levels can indicate liver damage.
7. Elevated levels of gamma-glutamyl transferase, or GGT. This enzyme is involved in the breakdown of proteins and high levels can be a sign of liver damage.
8. High levels of ferritin. This protein helps to store iron in the body and high levels can be a sign of liver damage.
9. High levels of bilirubin. This is a pigment produced by the liver and high levels can indicate liver damage.
10. High levels of fibrinogen. This is a protein involved in the clotting process and high levels can be a sign of liver damage.
11. High levels of Alpha Fetoprotein
12. Increased Uric Acid level
13. Increased Insulin levels suggesting Insulin Resistance.
So there you have it, the top biochemical markers to be aware of when it comes to fatty liver disease. If you’re concerned about any of these markers, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider for proper testing and management.
