Harpreet Kaur, 56 Years

Harpreet Kaur, a 56-year-old resident of Khanna, Ludhiana, embarked on a challenging health journey when she sought the expertise of Dr. Raghav Thukral, a dedicated dietician. Harpreet was grappling with type 2 diabetes and Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) stage 3, which significantly impacted her quality of life.

The Initial Struggle:

Seven months ago, Harpreet Kaur approached Dr. Raghav Thukral with a heavy heart and a multitude of health concerns. Her diabetes was uncontrolled, and her liver condition had progressed to a critical stage. She faced daunting challenges:

  • Fearing the Worst: Harpreet felt overwhelmed, believing her life was at its end due to her deteriorating health.
  • Uncontrolled Diabetes: Despite her efforts, her diabetes remained poorly managed, posing a constant threat to her well-being.
  • Digestive Distress: The severity of her liver condition made it nearly impossible for her to digest food, leading to persistent discomfort.
  • Gastric Discomfort: Harpreet experienced relentless acidity, reflux, indigestion, and bloating, further exacerbating her discomfort.
  • Mental Health Struggles: Amidst her physical ailments, Harpreet battled severe anxiety and depression, adding to her overall distress.

What is NAFLD?

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a condition in which fat builds up in the liver cells of people who drink little to no alcohol. It’s considered one of the most common liver disorders worldwide. NAFLD is often seen in individuals who are overweight or obese, have high cholesterol or triglycerides, or have diabetes or insulin resistance.

Symptoms of NAFLD

  • Fatigue: Feeling tired or lacking energy is a common symptom of NAFLD, especially as the liver becomes increasingly impaired.
  • Abdominal discomfort: Some people with NAFLD may experience discomfort or pain in the upper right side of the abdomen, where the liver is located. This discomfort can range from mild to severe.
  • Weight loss: Unexplained weight loss may occur in some individuals with advanced NAFLD, particularly if the condition has progressed to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
  • Enlarged liver: As fat accumulates in the liver, it may become enlarged, leading to a feeling of fullness or discomfort in the abdomen.
  • Jaundice: In rare cases, severe NAFLD or NASH can lead to jaundice, a yellowing of the skin and eyes due to impaired liver function.
  • Ascites: In advanced stages of liver disease, fluid may accumulate in the abdomen, causing swelling and discomfort.
  • Spider veins: Spider veins, or small clusters of blood vessels visible near the surface of the skin, may develop due to changes in blood flow associated with liver dysfunction.

Ayurveda for Fatty Liver

In Traditional Ayurvedic terms, NAFLD stage 3 (fibrosis) can be associated with an imbalance in Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas.

Vata Dosha: Vata is responsible for movement and elimination. In stage 3 NAFLD, the scarring in the liver may disrupt the normal flow of bile and waste products, leading to symptoms such as indigestion, bloating, and constipation.

Pitta Dosha: Pitta governs metabolism and transformation. In this context, an imbalance in Pitta dosha may contribute to poor digestion, acidity, and reflux, which are common in stage 3 NAFLD.

Kapha Dosha: Kapha is associated with structure, stability, and lubrication. Excess Kapha can lead to weight gain, obesity, and the accumulation of fat in the liver, which are risk factors for developing NAFLD.
