Journal of Hepatology: Women die from fatty liver twice as often as men

Fatty liver disease (FLD) is most common in men, but women with this diagnosis are twice as likely to die. Scientists came to these conclusions, reports the Journal of Hepatology.

GLD occurs due to alcohol abuse, as well as due to metabolic disorders. As a rule, the disease is provoked by excess visceral fat, diabetes or hypertension. These diseases not only lead to GBD, but are also aggravated when it occurs.

During the study, experts analyzed data from ten thousand patients. About 20 percent suffered from fatty liver disease. It is noted that representatives of the stronger sex encountered GBV twice as often as women. But deaths were much more common in women.

The risk of dying from GBD was 160% higher in women if alcohol consumption led to the disease. In other cases – by 83%.

Previously, Australian scientists came to the conclusion that processed meat products can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. They recommended excluding ham, sausages, hamburgers, meat pies and other unhealthy foods from the diet. More details in material Public News Service.
