Have you been diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease or NAFLD?
Did you have your routine blood work done and your doctor told you that your ALT or AST levels are elevated and that you have a fatty liver? Perhaps you had a FibroScan test completed that gives an accurate measure of fat accumulation in the liver.
Unfortunately, there is no medication that specifically reduces liver fat. Therefore, lifestyle changes such as addressing nutrition are the only treatment options for those with fatty liver.
Our Registered Dietitians understand the medical complexities of fatty liver and are able to personalize a plan to help improve your liver health. It is possible to resolve fatty liver within 3-6 months, depending on the degree of fatty liver.

Common Causes Of NAFLD:
Did you know that Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (or NAFLD) refers to fatty liver that is not due exclusively to unhealthy alcohol use, which is another cause of fat accumulation in the liver? NAFLD is caused by several habits and/or body factors, and it is the most common liver disease in Canada, affecting 20% of Canadians. The most common causes include:
– Drinking sugar-sweetened or high sugar beverages (Juice, Soda, Pop, Energy drinks) on a regular basis (i.e. daily)
– Eating too many refined carbs in your diet, such as cookies and baked goods, and processed grains such as sugary cereals and white bread products (ie. daily)
– Unbalanced eating habits, such as having very large meals
– Having large amounts of belly fat, also known as visceral fat
– Problems with gut health
– Insulin resistance, pre-diabetes or diabetes
– Metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar, large waist circumference, high lipids in the blood)
