Dr Sandra Cabot On Fatty Livers – Part 2

 

 

Fatty liver occurs when excess fat accumulates inside liver cells. This means normal, healthy liver tissue becomes partly replaced with fatty tissue. The fat starts to invade the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas, so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains. The fatty liver has a yellow greasy appearance and is often enlarged and swollen with fat. This fatty infiltration slows down the metabolism of body fat stores, which means that the liver burns fat less efficiently, resulting in weight gain and inability to lose weight. However some people can have a fatty liver without being overweight.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Part 2

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and it primarily affects young adults and resembles a prolonged flu-like illness. By definition the symptoms must be present for at least six months before it can be labelled as chronic fatigue syndrome. It seems that about 2 to 4 in a thousand people may have CFS and approximately two thirds of people who get it, are women.
