New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Early Detection of “Silent” Liver Cirrhosis?
so today we’re going to talk about early detection of silent liver cirrhosis now here’s the problem with cirrhosis which is basically scar tissue of the liver there is real no symptoms initially for decades until the later stages so you don’t really always know that you have cirrhosis however there is one symptom that most people do experience and that would be feeling sluggish and tired but that could be coming from a lot of different things you might not recognize it so the two categories of cirrhosis are compensated cirrhosis where the body’s compensating so really there’s no symptoms in this phase and then over time you develop what’s called decompensated cirrhosis where you start experiencing all these other symptoms so these are some of the symptoms that you experience when you have cirrhosis one is spider angioma which is something on your skin you have this little red dot with these little red like spider webs coming out from it xanthan Mo’s which are little cholesterol spots sometimes you see them around the eyelids they’re yellow because the liver is not functioning correctly jaundice where your whites of your eyes become yellow and also your skin starts to become yellow that’s liver damage theater skin because you can’t make collagen anymore so you get this paper like skin on the back of your hand and you can see it pretty much all over and then you have something called ascites which is a fluid-filled sac around your midsection it might look like it’s a fat gut but it’s really fluid that’s leaking out from the liver creating like a potbelly next one gynecomastia which is basically breast tissue Club fingernails okay so they’re like a little square little clubbed shape edema in the lower leg you see this very very often with liver damage and you press your finger in the lower calf or the lower part of the leg and you lead a little dent okay that’s edema swelling read palms confusion bruising itchy skin itchy feet cognitive issues so your focus your memory your concentration just isn’t there so if you do research on cirrhosis you see that people get a list for a liver transplant they’re put on maybe some supportive medication for other diseases but they don’t really tell you what to do to prevent it or they don’t give you advice to what to do naturally but there’s a lot of confusion on this okay that I want to sort out right now because they’ll say that cirrhosis is associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is associated with diabetes and metabolic syndrome and obesity and so you just need to lose weight and manage your diabetes symptoms but they don’t really sort out cause and effect in what comes first second and third well I’m just gonna explain right now very simply it all starts with something called insulin resistance okay and that’s created from alcohol or if you’re doing a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease it can be created from junk food a high carbohydrate diet sugar frequent eating drugs legally or illegally or even a virus could actually trigger insulin resistance okay when you have instant resistance you also have high levels of insulin okay then you’re going to get inflammation so this condition creates a lot of inflammation the inflammation will also make the insulin resistance worse then comes the fatty liver 65 million Americans have a fatty liver that’s incredible that’s a large percentage so then after a fatty liver you get scar tissue that replaces the normal liver cell and that’s called cirrhosis so you get the scar tissue so you have a combination of fatty liver and inflamed liver that then becomes filled with scar tissue and you lose function so in summary insulin resistance causes the liver to be fatty okay insulin resistance is basically what causes diabetes okay and diabetes you’re always gonna see insulin resistance type 2 diabetes I’m talking about that’s the trigger of it because it goes from insulin resistance creates high insulin over a long period of time then what happens you get a burnin effects where the pancreas can’t keep up and then the blood sugar starts going high that’s called pre-diabetes then it goes higher and then it’s a full-blown diabetes type 2 metabolic syndrome is basically high cholesterol blood sugar problems belly fat all symptoms coming from insulin resistance they kind of put it in this syndrome like it’s a it’s like a disease by itself when in fact it’s just a bunch of symptoms that are caused by this right here okay obesity it’s caused by instant resistance high levels of insulin and then cirrhosis is also caused by instant resistance so this is really at the core of this right here so if you start having some of these symptoms I’m gonna recommend that you start focusing on this right here improve insulin resistance and then see if these don’t improve as well I put a link down below for more information on this and what you need to do thanks for watching so I want to know about what you think about this video so please comment below and tell me what you think

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the early detection of the “silent” liver cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is scar tissue of the liver. It all starts with insulin resistance from consuming alcohol, high carb diet, junk foods, sugar, frequent eating, drugs and even a virus. Insulin resistance could also cause a lot of inflammation from high levels of insulin which could also make it worse. The combination of a fatty liver and inflamed liver could cause scar tissue that could lose the function. He also talked about how insulin resistance is associated with diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity and cirrhosis.
