The liver is the only organ in our body that does not have painful nerves and is usually detected at an advanced stage.

According to relevant data, there are about 400 million liver disease patients in China, including 250 million alcoholic liver patients, 90 million hepatitis B patients, 7 million cirrhotic liver patients, 25 million hepatitis C patients, and liver cancer patients for which no statistics are available.

Although the liver is an organ with the ability to repair and regenerate, if the liver is severely damaged, liver's ability to repair decreases, which can easily bring about liver lesions and lead to a series of liver problems.

There are various types of liver diseases, such as hepatitis A and hepatitis B, which are all liver diseases and have a certain degree of risk.

In the early stages of the liver disease there are no particularly obvious symptoms, so once the body is found to have symptoms of discomfort, we must go to the hospital early for a detailed examination.

Itchy skin

Itchy skin is a manifestation of many liver disease patients during the disease.

This is mainly due to the itchy symptoms brought about by the impaired bile secretion after the liver function decreases, which stimulates the skin, and the itchy symptoms are so intense that they are usually unbearable.

Loss of appetite

Damage to liver cells can lead to a decrease in bile secretion, which tends to affect the digestion of fats and can lead to loss of appetite and anorexia.

If you always feel pain in the liver area, and the pain is relieved on the left side, then you should pay attention to see if there is a problem with the liver.

Are walnuts "hairy" for liver disease?

Some people believe that walnuts contain a lot of fat that can easily aggravate the condition of liver disease, so is this statement true? There is no scientific basis for such a statement.

Although walnuts do contain a certain amount of fat, and the fat content is not low, the fat in walnuts is not "bad" fat.

More than 80% of the fat in walnuts is made up of unsaturated fat and sulfite, which are nutrients that, when entered into the body, not only do not raise blood lipid levels but also help lower cholesterol.

However, it is not recommended for people with liver disease to eat a lot of walnuts regularly, as a large intake of walnuts can easily increase the digestive burden of the body, which can easily bring health risks.

For everyone, especially for patients with liver disease, the daily intake of walnuts should be kept within 10 grams, and never eat too much at once.

And those who have poor liver function, usually should eat less of the following three types of food, I wonder if you have been eating in daily life?

Reminder: If you want normal liver function, try to eat less 3 kinds of food

White sugar

Often eating sugar will indeed be easy to bring damage the liver, which is due to the direct link between sugar metabolism and the liver, the body's intake of excessive sugar will be easy to bring damage the liver.

Fried food

In our daily life, fried food is delicious, eaten caramelized and crispy, very people eat.

But the fat content of fried food is very high, often eaten in large quantities will easily lead to an increase in the body's blood lipid content, and long-term eating of these foods will also be easy to damage the liver, increasing the burden on the liver, and may even easily induce more serious liver damage.

White wine

Perhaps many people know that drinking alcohol can easily damage dryness, and liquor is a major "culprit" leading to liver disease.

This is mainly because alcohol enters the liver and produces acetaldehyde, which combines with proteins to form aldehydes, thus causing damage to liver cells.

Patients with complications will be prone to the alcoholic liver, liver hypoxia, liver cirrhosis and other aspects of the disease.

Nourishing the liver is a big deal, adhere to 3 things, and the liver will thank you

Eat more green vegetables

From the perspective of Chinese medicine, the green color into the liver, the liver is not good will often be accompanied by indigestion appetite loss and other aspects of the problem, so if you want to enhance the function of the liver, and liver care, then you should eat more green food.

Stay up less

Staying up late often will easily lead to a lack of sleep, which will not only easily bring about a decrease in resistance, but will also affect the liver's self-repair at night.

From the perspective of Chinese medicine, 11:00 pm to 2:00 am is the detoxification time of the liver, if you do not enter into a deep sleep during this time, then it is not easy to affect the excretion of the liver, damage to the liver, which will invariably bring trouble to the work of liver care.

Drink more water

The weather in autumn is relatively dry, the body is prone to lack of water, the liver is a very important detoxification organ in the body, directly involved in the body's digestion and nutrient metabolism process.

This process requires water consumption, if the water is not enough, the metabolic efficiency of the liver will be slowed down, and sufficient water to promote the liver to produce bile, and then make the liver and the entire digestive system work, to help detoxification, reduce the burden on the liver.
