Pine Valley, Pine Valley (PressExposure) March 09, 2012 -- Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports a recent study from the National Institute of Health that says simple diet changes could mean promise for liver damage in liver patients.
A study from Staff at the University of Maryland Medical Center suggests that liver patients avoid simple carbs that lack vitamins and minerals, and have a lot of calories in them. Examples include white bread, white rice, table sugar and carbonated drinks. Complex carbohydrates like legumes and whole wheat bread are some of the alternatives that they suggest.
Dr. Victor Marchione, an expert in Pulmonary Medicine, and spokesperson for Bel Marra Health says, "the remarkable part about liver damage is that it can be reversed. The liver is able to replace damaged tissue with new cells, but this can require lifestyle changes. Research shows diets can go a long way in helping get your liver back on track."
If the liver is damaged it has a very difficult time processing protein. It can cause ammonia to build up in the blood, which is toxic. Since a damaged liver is not able to make glycogen anymore, diets with carbohydrates are important.
Since people with liver disease can have underlying medical conditions that make them less active, they have to be conscious of too many calories leading to excessive weight gain. A lot of patients are encouraged to count calories every day.
CEO of Bel Marra Health, Jim Chiang lends support to the study as well, but says, "there are some liver diseases that require specific diets; programs that need to be managed and monitored by a medical expert, so consult with a physician before making any major dietary changes."
