Improving non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. 

Measures of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) can be significantly improved by regular physical exercise. This is independent of dietary changes. 

NAFLD affects at least 1 in 4 U.S. adults. The research found that physical activity led to a significant drop in intrahepatic lipid content. The studies also found that physical activity had an even bigger effect, reducing more fat, in pediatric patients as it did in patients with higher BMI's than lower ones. 

Although the researchers were unable to determine the long-term effects of physical exercise or its effects on hepatic fibrosis or inflammation this provides strong enough evidence for physical activity to be recommended as an intervention treatment for NAFLD. Physical activity is also associated with an improvement in blood levels of aminotransferases and is particularly beneficial in patients presenting with severe obesity at baseline.

NAFLD is associated with obesity as well so maintaining healthy daily exercise habits are important. 

Fatty liver disease can leave you feeling fatigued, bloated, weak, constipated and nauseous. You may be suffering from pain in the upper right area of your stomach or even experience dizziness and confusion.
