there's one major adverse effect of consuming sugar that even those with a serious sweet tooth probably don't know about: Eating sugar is a strong predictor of liver damage.
"Sugar quickly enters the bloodstream and raises blood sugar levels, causing a spike in blood sugar levels. The pancreas releases insulin as a result of the rapid rise in blood glucose. Inflammation
and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease can occur as a result of repeated rises in blood glucose and insulin owing to sugar overconsumption "She is the Sovereign Laboratories' resident nutritionist
Alicia Galvin. An analysis published in the Journal of Hepatology in 2018 found that people who drank a lot of sugary drinks were more likely to develop non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease can be considerably reduced by reducing the amount of sugar in your diet. A low-sugar diet for eight weeks dramatically improved the health of
11 to 16-year-old boys with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, according to a study published in JAMA in 2019.Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) isn't the only problem that sugar can
cause for the liver. Having diabetes or pre-diabetes is associated with an increased risk of developing liver cancer, according to a 2017 meta-analysis published in the journal Oncotarget.
It's always a good idea to start by reducing your daily sugar intake if you want to be on the safe side and keep your liver healthy in the future.
