What is fatty hepatosis or steatohepatitis? According to their purpose, liver cells (hepatocytes) take an active part in metabolism, including fat metabolism. Unfortunately, the liver has the property of fat accumulation. At first, fat is simply collected in hepatocytes, but over time, liver cells get overfilled and burst, for which reason fat spreads throughout the liver tissues. This leads to the replacement of healthy cells with fibrous mass, functional liver decrease, deterioration of its performance, which is why the body is not cleaned of harmful substances. Over time, fibrosis develops into liver cirrhosis, and the organ becomes incompetent.

Essence of Treatment
treatment of the cause of fatty hepatosis, as well as intake of the so-called hepatoprotectors, which only slow down fibrosis worsening.
treatment of the cause of fatty hepatosis and therapy aimed at complete liver restoration
slowing the disease progression; over time — the need for liver transplantation.
the patient is healthy, active, lives a full long life
Life Expectancy of the Patient
within the lifespan of a healthy person
