What is "NASH disease"?
Soda disease, also known as Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, is a condition in which excessive amounts of fat accumulate in the liver, mainly as a result of a diet rich in sugar and fat. It is associated with excessive consumption of sugary drinks, particularly sodas, hence the name.
NASH disease may be asymptomatic, but it can progress to more serious complications, such as liver inflammation, poor scarring (fibrosis) and even cirrhosis of the liver. It is often associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes and other metabolic problems.
How can this disease be prevented?
Here are a few tips to prevent NASH disease:
👉 Reduce your consumption of sugary drinks:
Avoid sodas, fruit juices and energy drinks as much as possible. Instead, opt for water, infusions, unsweetened tea or coffee.
👉 Adopt a healthy diet:
Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, grains and lean proteins. Avoid processed foods rich in added sugars. Eating a diet with a low glycemic index will help stabilize your blood sugar levels.
👉 Exercise regularly:
Exercise can help maintain a stable weight and prevent the metabolic disorders associated with soda disease.
👉See your doctor regularly:
Your doctor will provide you with the best advice and care for your health. Don't hesitate to consult him or her with further questions!
