This organ performs crucial functions in the body, as it cleanses it of dangerous substances, metabolizes nutrients, produces blood clotting proteins, regulates blood sugar levels, digests fat, controls the bile production and the production of other important enzymes.
Yet, the most prominent disruption is the fat deposits, which inhibit the normal liver function. In this case, there is a disorder in the metabolic processes, which leads to accumulation of fats in organs and arteries, and an increased risk of heart diseases.
The fat accumulation can be caused by the following reasons:
■ Abuse of medicine, such as corticosteroids
■ Disorders of the metabolism
■ Frequent and excess use of alcohol
■ Deficiency in some enzyme
■ Protein deficiency in the diet
■ Exposure to some chemicals
