When Sugar Turns Fatty

The liver is a very important organ that is often overlooked when we feel relatively healthy. Unfortunately, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is often silent until serious damage has occurred. This life threatening disease is often associated with insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Non-alcoholic fatty liver can lead into cirrhosis of the liver if left uncorrected (Dyson, Anstee, & McPherson, 2013). Nearly one third of the US population suffers with fat build up on and in the liver.
