You suffer from fatty liver...Learn a little more about this disease.

The liver is one of the organs of the body that works the most, it performs more than 300 different functions, including producing the bile essential for digestion, controlling the storage of fats, and filtering toxins from everything we consume, among other essential functions for the body.

When the levels of fat in the liver increase, our immune system triggers inflammation to try to reduce the damage, but if this process continues, you can begin to deteriorate the structure and function of the organ and eventually ends up being non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and may increase the risk of developing more serious conditions such as cirrhosis, liver cancer, and liver failure.

(Fatty liver)

Among the causes and events related to the development of NASH are an unhealthy lifestyle with diets high in fats and sugars, a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and some metabolic disorders.

In the early stages of the disease the following symptoms may be experienced:

  • Fatigue.

  • Abdominal inflammation or swelling (ascites).

  • Abdominal pain.

Subsequently, it can cause:

  • Accumulation of fluid in the legs and abdomen.

  • Yellowing of the skin and eyes.

  • Itchy skin.

  • Nausea or vomiting.

  • Loss of appetite.

Early detection is key, once you know the risks of developing this disease, it is necessary to make changes in diet and lifestyle, to help stop, reverse or prevent the progression and development of the disease.

Although there are no treatments for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), new potential options are being evaluated in clinical research studies.

At Alpha Research Institute we offer a clinical study to formulate a new drug to help all people with this condition.

If you suffer from non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and you are over 18 years old, you can participate as a volunteer and receive financial compensation. For more information, visit
