Drinking coffee may help reduce severity of fatty liver in diabetics

This has been revealed in a study by the University of Coimbra (Portugal). caffeine, Polyphenols and other natural products in coffee may help Reducing the severity of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in overweight people with type 2 diabetes (DMT2).

Nonalcoholic fatty liver is a collective term for liver disorders caused by a build-up of fat in the liver. They can cause liver fibrosis, which can lead to cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and liver cancer, NAFLD is not a result of excessive alcohol consumption but rather a result of unhealthy lifestyle, low exercise and high-calorie diet.

study participants Higher coffee consumption had healthier livers, Those with higher levels of caffeine were less likely to have liver fibrosis, while higher levels of non-caffeinated coffee components were significantly associated with lower fatty liver index scores.

The study, published in the scientific journal Nutrientssuggests that, in patients with type 2 diabetes and overweight, Higher coffee consumption is associated with less severe nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

reduce oxidative stress

Caffeine intake is associated with a reduction in liver fibrosis in NAFLD and other chronic liver diseases. Other components of coffee, including polyphenols, have been suggested to reduce oxidative stress in the liverIn turn reducing the risk of fibrosis and improving glucose homeostasis in both healthy and overweight subjects. All of these factors can also be Reduce the severity of type 2 diabetes.

“Due to changes in modern diet and lifestyle, obesity rates are rising and the incidence of both type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is increasing, which may eventually become more serious and irreversible conditions that overwhelm health care systems.” Our research is the first to observe high cumulative amounts of caffeine and non-caffeine metabolites in urine are associated with less severity of NAFLD In overweight people with type 2 diabetes,” study lead author Dr. John Griffith JonesPrincipal Investigator of the Center for Neuroscience and Cellular Biology of the University of Coimbra.
