Diet for fatty hepatosis


Fatty hepatosis is a pathology in which liver cells, because of excessive fat deposits, cease to perform their direct functions.This leads to a variety of dystrophies of the tissues, slowing the rate of blood flow in the organs of the gastrointestinal tract.Such destruction processes lead to the fact that liver cells can be gradually replaced by a connective, scar tissue, which can easily be transformed into cirrhous or oncological lesions.
