This page contains information about scholarships for cancer patients, cancer survivors, children of a cancer patient or survivor, students who lost a parent to cancer, and students pursuing careers in cancer treatment.
Families who are faced with cancer undergo severe physical, psychological and financial strain. Students who are fighting cancer must often interrupt their education and cannot work to save money for college or participate in extracurricular activities. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery can be extremely debilitating, requiring extensive rehabilitation. Cancer survivors find it more difficult to find health, life and disability insurance, and the insurance that is available to them is usually much more expensive. They are not eligible for military scholarships, such as ROTC scholarships. According to a 2007 study published in the journal Pediatric Blood and Cancer, childhood cancer survivors are more than four times more likely to have difficulty finding employment as compared with healthy people. The entire experience is draining both emotionally and financially.
This page provides information about awards that are not limited to a single college or university. To find more information about these and other cancer scholarships, search the FastWeb scholarship database. (When searching Fastweb for cancer scholarships, please answer the optional questions. There's one that asks whether the student is a cancer survivor and one that asks whether the student's parent had cancer. One can answer the optional questions by editing the profile through the link in the upper right hand corner of the site's pages.) Also look in the FinAid section concerning Financial Aid for Students with Disabilities, especially the HEATH Resource Guide for Students With Disabilities.
In addition, students who are first diagnosed with cancer while in college should talk with the dean of students and the director of student financial aid at their school. Many colleges and universities have contingency funds to provide additional assistance to students who are suddenly faced with a serious illness.
According to a study published on September 11, 2007 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, cancer patients with a higher education are less likely to die of cancer than cancer patients with just a high school diploma. The study examined mortality rates for lung, breast, prostate and colorectal cancer for patients with 12 or fewer years of education compared with patients with more than 12 years of education.

What Is A Gall Bladder?
Sheltered by the liver that covers the gall bladder like a hood is an organ that is a storage facility for bile. вЂњBladderвЂќ is the word for storage facility. вЂњGallвЂќ is the old-fashioned word for bile. It literally means вЂњbitter.вЂќ You will know this for certain if you have ever regurgitated bile. It is VERY bitter. The gall bladder stores this bile until it is needed for the digestive process. Bile breaks down the fatty foods that you eat, preparing them for absorption through the intestinal wall. Your gall bladder is located just under your right rib cage, sheltered from harm by the strong bony cage of your ribs.
Bile Has More Than One Purpose
Bile is used in the digestion of the fats that we eat. Bile is also the vehicle that the liver uses to rid the body of fat-soluble waste. It is this second purpose that is critical to our understanding of gall bladder disease.
Main Detoxification Organ
The liver is the most important detoxification organ that we have.
Op dag 8 ging ik op de weegschaal staan en kon ik mijn ogen niet geloven.
And because it curbs your appetite, your body will tap existing fat stores with any additional demand for energy and not make you eat more.
The liver is responsible for filtering the blood, cleaning out all fat-soluble waste. Most people are not aware of this function of the liver. Most people think that the kidneys alone are responsible for filtering blood. The kidneys do filter blood, but the kidneys only filter out water-soluble waste. The kidneys are incapable of dealing with fats. It is the liverвЂ™s function to handle the fats. Interestingly enough, the preponderance of toxins are fat-soluble, not water-soluble, and in this group of fat-soluble toxins there are many that are very nasty.
Nasty Toxins Are Filtered From The Blood, Now What?
Once the liver has filtered these toxins and waste from the bloodstream, it is necessary to find a pathway out of the body for this вЂњgarbage.вЂќ The liver has no access to the urinary tract, so it cannot send its trash away through that system. However, the liver does make bile, and this bile goes to the gall bladder. The gall bladder stores the bile and then releases it at the appropriate time into the duodenum (first part of the small intestine where most digestion takes place). If the bile can travel the length of the intestinal tract and be expelled from the body in a bowel movement, then the liver will have been successful in ridding the body of those toxins and wastes that were placed in the bile.
The Recycling Catch
As bile is made out of fatty acids, it can be absorbed just as any other fat can be absorbed. And it is. The body absorbs fats from the ileum (the last part of the small intestine). Ninety to ninety-five percent of the bile that a person produces is absorbed from the ileum. That means 90-95% of the fat-soluble waste will also be absorbed and returned to the bloodstream. The bile (in its constituent parts) will travel back to the liver. That means the waste that had been sent for elimination was only minimally eliminated. Therefore, the liver reuses this bile, trying once again to get the waste out of the body. But there is a catch: the liver continued to filter blood while that bile was on its merry way traveling the intestinal track. The liver has accumulated more toxins that have to be eliminated. So before sending the old bile back to the gall bladder, the liver will tuck in a few more toxins. If the bile recycles yet again, the liver will have to squeeze in even more toxins. Are you beginning to see that the bile that recycles again and again becomes more and more toxic? After time, the bile becomes thicker and extremely noxious. The bile becomes so thick that it actually begins to roll up into little balls. It starts as вЂњgrains of sandвЂќ and can roll into larger вЂњstones.вЂќ Even if the bile never forms stones, it becomes so thick that partial obstruction of the biliary ducts can occur. This blockage of the biliary ducts can cause discomfit and eventually excruciating pain.
Contractions Of The Gall Bladder
The gall bladder uses muscle contraction to propel the bile from the gall bladder out into the duodenum. The bile travels in little pathways that we call biliary ducts. If the gall bladder is pushing the bile through these ducts and it meets resistance because the bile is more dense, discomfit and pain will result. Imagine the gall bladder pushing this digestive fluid through tubes, but the fluid is not moving. That creates a back pressure which is not pleasant to experience. At first, when the bile is just вЂњsludgy,вЂќ there will only be a feeling of discomfit in the upper right quadrantвЂ”that is the area on the right side of the chest, just underneath the lower bones in the rib cage. As the biliary ducts become partially obstructed with stones, the discomfort will intensify to pain. If the duct becomes even more obstructed, the pain can increase to levels that are unmanageable. A blocked biliary duct can be so painful that the person will think that they are dying, or at least they may wish that they would die. These situations usually result in an emergency room visit which may or may not end with a gall bladder removal, which will most probably not have been necessary. Gall stones, even the largest, can be dissolved simply, safely, and relatively quickly using common foods.
How Can We Dissolve Stones?
If we are able to have in the duodenum a substance that will bind with the bile, not allowing its reabsorption, we are on our way. Soluble fiber, being found in the highest concentration in legumes, will bind with bile so tightly, that the bile will not be able to pass the intestinal barrier, and will not be carried back to the liver. Any bile that binds with soluble fiber will be eliminated out of the body through a bowel movement. Soluble fiber is unable to cross the intestinal barrier. Any substance that is bound to this fiber will likewise be unable to cross the intestinal barrier. Therefore, the liver will not receive back that bile from the gastro-intestinal tract. That means the liver will have to make brand-new bile. This new bile is not loaded down with toxic trash from the last several months and years. It is clean and new. It is able to breakdown any old bile that has become thickened and hardened. As this new bile goes to the gall bladder, it begins to clean up the deposits of old bile. В Each time clean, new bile is passed through the gall bladder, more of the old bile is dissolved. Eventually, if we keep up this process, all stones, gravel, and sandy deposits will be totally dissolved and flushed into the duodenum. There this old bile, as well as the new bile, will bind with the soluble fiber. The bile will be carried out of the body. The liver will continue to make new bile that will keep the gall bladder clean and healthy.
Bile Can Dissolve Bile?
Absolutely. Oils and fats are some of our best cleansers. Fats break down fats. If we need to break down old bile deposits that have rolled into stones, it is a clean fat that will be able to do the job. That is why it is absolutely necessary to compel the liver to make brand-new, fresh, clean bile. To do this we have to eliminate from the gastro-intestinal tract all the bile that we can so that none will recycle back to the liver. This absence of recycled bile is what will force the liver to produce new bile.
As the gall bladder is being made healthy, your cholesterol and triglyceride levels will be decreasing. The liver makes bile out of the fats in your bloodstream, in other words cholesterol and triglycerides.
But What If I Am In Pain Now?
First of all, stop eating any fatty foods. The fats in foods signal the gall bladder to release bile. The more fat you eat, the more bile will be released. If you have an obstructed or inflamed gall bladder, the peristalsis (smooth muscle contraction) will precipitate pain. Next, begin to eat legumes immediately if the pain begins. You will notice a lessening of the pain in just a few minutes. The pain will dull and become more bearable. However, in a short time, even as short as 30 minutes, you may again feel the pain. Again, eat legumes. The pain will again lessen. Basically, if you consume the legumes almost constantly, the pain will eventually go away. The bile that is getting into the duodenum is bound with the fiber. That stimulates the liver to release new clean bile that will begin to work on the stones, gravel or sand that is blocking the biliary ducts. If you are in acute pain now, you will need to eat a total of 3 or more cups of legumes spread out over 8-10 times in a day. There is no limit to the number of legumes you may eat, just a minimum intake (3 cups). As you continue to eat the legumes, the pain will continue to lessen. Remember that it is small amounts of beans taken frequently that is important.
When Will The Stones Be Dissolved?
In a several weeks (6-10 is the average, although it may be less or moreвЂ”depending on each personвЂ™s individual situation), with a high consumption of legumes, the stones will be dissolved. What is a high consumption of legumes? You must eat at least ВЅ cup of cooked legumes six times a day. В Minimum intake is 3 cups. It is important that you spread the 3 cups out into the six ВЅ cup servings. We want to keep soluble fiber continually in the duodenum to bind with the bile as it is released from the gall bladder. Eating all three cups of beans at one time will not meet this requirement.
Legumes are what we normally term вЂњsoup beansвЂќ or вЂњdry beans.вЂќ They are pinto beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, white beans, navy beans, black beans, lentils, split peas, black-eyed peas, and lima beans, to name just a few. Legumes are not green beans, wax beans, soy beans, or peanuts.
Do I Have To Eat Beans Cooked From The Dry?
You may certainly soak your beans and cook them for several hours if you desire, or you may simply purchase canned beans that are already fully cooked. Either way is acceptable.
Have you ever changed the oil in a car? What does the oil look like when you drain it out? It is black and gritty. When you put fresh new oil into the engine, what does it look like? It is clear, smooth (no grit) and amber colored. As this new oil circulates through the engine, it picks up carbon and dirt. The oil is keeping the engine toxin-free so that it can run at optimum capacity. If we allowed the same oil to continue to circulate through the engine for a long timeвЂ”say yearsвЂ”what would eventually happen to the engine? It would lock-up. It would cease to function. Everyone who deals with machinery knows the importance of changing the oil in an engine. It is the same with the human body. The bile is the oil. It is responsible for carrying out waste. However, if we never change the oil, and the old oil continues to circulate over and over again, eventually that oil will lock up the engine. In this case, the engine is the gall bladder that becomes blocked with debrisвЂ”the debris is the old bile or oil that is so nasty by now, that the gall bladder is no longer able to function properly. What is the answer? Change the oil. The new oil (bile) will clean out all the old bile deposits and the gall bladder will be restored to health.

Ways to cure Fatty liver
By Sanjana Shenoy | July 22, 2009 | Comments 153 comments
A query from a faithful subscriber.
I am a male of 33 years of age,recently diagnosed with Grade 1 fatty liver. How can I get rid of this problem? Besides I am gaining weight around the mid section. Kindly advise me the treatment and food I should follow.
Fatty liver is a common problem seen in many urban parts of India. Most of the time it goes untreated or doctors fail to advise on this condition. This does not produce any visible symptoms , but can put you at the risk of liver inflammation which ultimately can lead to jaundice( hepatitis), liver failure and liver cancer. Initially it stays as a benign condition and is really harmless. But it can progress to a potential slow killer.
Fatty liver Commonly seen in overweight persons and mostly above the ages of 30 and any liver problems are associated with alcohol. But Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease(NAFLD) is commonly seen rather than the Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. So non alcohol drinkers too can get afflicted.
In this condition, the liver consists of excess of fat and the healthy tissues are replaced by unhealthy fats. This makes the liver larger and heavier. This can possibly lead to gall stones.
What can be the various causes for a person to have fatty liver?
- Being Overweight or obese especially in the abdominal area
- Poor diet- high sugar intake, high fat intake
- Elevated cholesterol levels and triglycerides in the blood
- If suffering from metabolic syndrome
- Diabetic for over a long period of time and taking medications for the same
Now the question arises whether is it possible to fatty liver?
Yes, it is definitely possible to reverse the condition of fatty liver if the following tips are followed.
- Reduce the intake of refined carbohydrates in your diet such as white bread, white rice, pasta, noodles, cakes, biscuits, desserts, soft drinks, sweetened fruit juices and also that of table sugar.
It is a bit vain if you look at it without understanding the effect of weight loss in a person.
Avoid breakfast cereals too.
- Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables in the diet.
- Eat whole grains such as brown rice, whole wheat products, oats, ragi, bajra, jowar etc and Pulses and legumes.
- Avoid all kinds of fried food, processed food, high fat foods in general all junk food.
- Avoid red meats such as mutton, beef, pork and opt for fat trimmed meats and white meats such as fish, chicken, turkey. Avoid processed meat or cured meats.
- Switch over to low fat milk products from full cream or full fat milk products.
- Avoid margarine, mayonnaise as much as possible.
- Avoid artificial sweeteners as well. They do not help in the long term.
- Use oils which provided monounsaturated fatty acids.
- Control diabetes with diet, medications and exercise.
- Keep your cholesterol levels in check and reduce triglycerides in the blood.
- Avoid alcohol as much as possible.
Exercise daily to reduce weight and to keep weight in check. Reduce the abdominal fat content by eating smaller meals and by exercising daily by walking, jogging and also bu incorporating yoga in your diet.

I am a regular visitor of your website.I have a query regarding sinus and piles.My husband is having some symptoms like headache, dizziness, dull feeling ,heavy breathing and snoring in the night.The doctor has diagonized
his condition as sinusitis and prescribed antibiotics Amoxillin.Its a heavy dosage of 3 times a day for 7 days , each of 500mg.No vitamin tables have been prescribed .
What are the food restrictions for a person suffering from sinus?Can he have curd?His intake of antibiotics is causing lot of trouble due to heat.Moreover he is feeling a irritating sensation in rectum and is using Anusol for relief.Will this intake of antibiotics aggravate his condition? When he consulted the doctor for sinus, he hadn’t informed about the problem in his anal area.
There are no food restrictions for sinusitis. But a good diet can help through the inflammation. Exercise can help to ease up the breathing, so a 30 minute walk daily can do wonders.
I agree the antibiotic dosage is high. He needs to be well hydrated and has to include probiotics in his diet. For the anal pain, he should immediately meet a gastroenterologist and get it treated as soon as possible. Self medication is not advisable now.
He can include curds in his diet. If he feels that the symptoms of sinusitis are aggravating, then he can avoid it. Probiotic supplements are easily available in the form of tablets. It is available in any pharmacy. These tablets contain lactic acid. Preferably get a prescription for this supplement although this can be safely taken off the counter.
This is a good basic recipe for anyone for improved health. Re: sinusitus – I have never heard probiotics for that condition, but I suppose they are good for everything as well. I stopped having sinus infections when I began taking a supplement with spirulina in it. Also I had a good doctor who did not want to overprescribe antibiotics. It worked! No antibiotics now for almost 10 years! And no sinus infections!
I am so delighted to see this feed. I was detected fatty liver about 4 years ago. I am neither overweight or alcoholic (at that time I was 160lbs with 5-6″ height). The doctors couldnt advise me anything. I think immediately afterwards, I found that I had high cholesterol too.
I follow your blog and since I have lost about 14lbs. I also watch my food closely. I completely believe that my next numbers will fall down without taking any cholesterol medication which would have hampered my liver further.
Re:Vineeta-If you let me I would suggest something for piles. I used to have some problem in past and I found that Triphala Churna (from Himalaya), 1tab before meals and warm bath with few drops of castor oil helps great. Ofcourse one has to control diet and take advice of specialist.
Thank you so much Sanjana,Carol and Vikram for sharing your views on my problem.I will include loads of curd and vegetables in his diet and also advise him to consult a doctor for his problem,He had been using Anusol for about a week now and still feels the lump.So I think a doctor only can advise more on this. Thank you for all your suggestions.
Have a nice day!
Thank you so much Dr.Sanjana for throwing light on this. I will definitely include curd in his diet and consult doctor regarding his problem.
Thank you so much!
Have a nice day!
Thanks for your valuable comment. In India there is a common belief that milk and yogurt can cause mucus accumulation and cause a cold. This myth has been coming down from generations. Hence, very difficult to change this. I usually advise an alternative to people who get these symptoms. There is a concept of “cold foods” which can cause a cold or give a congestion and “heat foods” which make make people hot and make them break out into sweats. Milk and milk products are considered cold foods.
Vineeta asked me if her husband can eat yogurt for his sinusitis, while yogurt would have helped him for his piles condition,as she feels his sinusitis can aggravate by eating yogurt.
That’s great. You are skating towards good health.
I’m Priya, 26yrs(delivered my first baby 2 months back) and recently diagnosed with Grade 1 fatty liver. Also, it looks like i have multiple tiny mobile gallstones. I wonder whether these are due to my pregnancy. coz, i had a health checkup 4 months before i got pregnant and was in good health. My SGOT and SGPT were only 14 and 17 then; but now its raised to 119 and 423 which i know is toooo high. Also my triglycerides are only 140, cholesterol levels are good. I do not have diabetes, my BMI is 23.8, have never consumed alcohol, now taking lots of milk as I’m lactating. I consulted a physician here and I’m given Ursodiol tablets. Kindly advise on what I should do and a diet to follow as I’m breastfeeding.
Thanks in Advance..
haviing pain in right abdomen for 4-5 months. liver enzymes varying from normal to levle of 90. Doctor says it is fatty liver.
Kindly advise how to cure without any medicine beacuse allopathy does not suit me and rather increases pain.
Follow the above tips in the articles.
I was searching the web for facts of the FATTY LIVER as I was detected for the same while undergoing for a CT Scan for my kidney stones as I had undergone PCNL for my kidney. The radiologist deteceted fatty liver in the CT scan and and also in the Ultra Sound Scan. I don’t have gall bladder stones as they were not detected in the 2 scans.I am diabetic and under treatment from a very good diabetalogist in Mumbai. I am a vegetarian and don’t take alcohol. a year back my weight was 84 Kgs and now it is 89 Kgs. my belly portion is too large just like an Obese person but I am not obese person. My diet intake is very simple NO sugar / No areated waters / No startchy foods / No junk foods / take only rotis for my lunch & dinner / OATS for my brakfast and milk products like Probiotic dahi & low fat milk.
What should I do for my day by day increasing waist ( belly) line my legs are very thin . CT Scan shows my intestines are very normal except for a large mass of fatyy deposits on the internal organs of my belly and fatty liver. Kindly advise.
I live in Mumbai. And I commute daily to office by two wheeler- train- walk which is about 35 KMs onway. I mean I am very active every day.
Kindly advise what can I do to reduce my weight / fatty liver. I am 45 yrs old. Diabetic since last 10 yrs. height 5’8″ weight 89 Kgs ( increased by 5 kgs in last 1 yr period.) ***** MUMBAI / 05.02.2010
Thanks for your great writing on Fatty Lever. I am also suffring from the same. I was treated earlier as migrane. It is discovered in last year that I have Fatty Lever through sonography at Kolkata. Is that sign of Cancer? I am 50 years old weight 80 Kg and hight 5?10?. My sexual life is also distrubed, feeling lazyness all the time and continious digestive problems but luckely I am not diabetic. I offenly take Ibugesic Plus, Gelusil MPS, Tetramycin and Pentop-40. Kindy suggest me.
I am not a dietician but I couldnt resist replying to your situation.
Basically you are in the same boat as I was 1 year ago. Difference- I was 30 years old and was 160 lbs with 5-6″, non-alcoholic and non-diabetic. Still I had a fatty liver! Fatty liver as such is not a serious disease in short-term but it can have long term effects on your health. In extreme cases liver cirossis..but it would certainly raise your triglycerides.
First priority in your case would be drastically reducing your weight. While you are already doing good job in your lifestyle, I think there is more to be done. I think it will be good to reduce the amount of food. Also it would be good to take out rotis once in while in your meals. Eat lots of salad. Avoid deep fried food and any type of junk food. Write down a diary of what you eat every day and you will know more about your meals. Avoid caffine (coffee, tea) because it slows down your metabolism. Eat lots of food and if possible do not drink non-fat milk. Its a contradictory statement, but its a processed milk and it wont do good to your health.
Last but not least you will have to exercise. Walk and commuting wont count towards your exercise. You have to exercise so that all of your muscles are getting trained. Treadmill, running, crunches..something that will increase your heartbeat to 135+ for 30 mins would be of great help.
— but once again, I am not a doctor or a dietician, I am writing this based on my personal experience through which I completely gotten rid of my fatty liver within 9 months which stayed with me for 5 years.
Eat lots of “food”, should be read as “Fruits”.. but since you are diabetic you will have to watch it too
hey even my father is suffering from fatty liver,sinus and migraine.we are vegetarian,no alcholic drinks,he got diabets since 1 year. so please can u advise me how to cure this disease.
Diabetes cannot be cured but can be controlled. Hence you will need to see that he eats a healthy diet with good carbs.
Your Liver is as vital to your health as your heart and lungs are.. But nobody cares to keep it healthy and one fine morning you go to a doctor to hear from him that you have some problem with your liver.
You can keep your Liver healthy by living clean, by eating crunchy veggies and also by having an eye on the nutritional supplements you may be having on your dining table. May I elaborate this para for the benefit of all ?.
Liver is a vital part of one’s body. It is not just a place to work as a filter mechanism. All of the blood that has visited your small intestine flows through the liver where it gets detoxified. It is a big job, and Liver is doing it. Having said this much, some tips are given below for helping your Liver to help you and these need your cooperation.
1) To give less work to the liver and live clean, drink filtered water always, eat
unprocessed foods, choose veggie protein over red meat,
2) To add crunchy veggies, have broccoli and cabbage, then B-rich foods like whole grains, and high C items such as citrus fruits and green leaves. All these, if regularly consumed assist the Liver’s detoxifying process.
3) Consider a supplement. Lecithin ( Soya beans and egg yolks are good sources ) and Zinc support Liver function. Herbs like Milk thistle and dandelion may help liver function too., but please consult your doctor before taking them.
4) Do not take too much of vitamin “A”. If you do, you risk liver problems including Cirrhosis.
5) Remember always that liver does a lot of jobs in the body and if one job fails from any one of the major ones, one had better start making funeral arrangements. It is very necessary therefore one has to watch his or her weight, When you get fat, liver also gets fat too. Further, low alcoholic intake( if stopped altogether ,the better) and a sensible diet are the best bets for the liver and given maximum care, the liver will do its functions properly.

I am suffering pain in right side of my Stomach and lower abdominal since year 2000. I am facing the problem since last 10 years. I am diagnosed as a FATTY LIVER & detected for the same while undergoing for a CT Scan. The radiologist detected fatty liver in the CT scan and and also in the Ultra Sound Scan. I have calcium formation/Polib in gallbladder stones as they were not detected in the 2 scans. Last month (March-2010) I also operated and remove the Gallbladder. After operation and I also suffering the same problem and pain .
Kindly suggest me. I am a non-vegetarian and don’t take alcohol. A year back my weight was 75 Kgs. My diet intake is very simple NON-VEG (meat mutton & chicken), NO sugar / No aerated waters / No starchy foods / No junk foods / take only rotis for my lunch & dinner / OATS for my breakfast and milk products like Probiotic dahi & low fat milk.

my brother got fatty liver,but he also got gastric problem which mean gastric juice coming in into oesophagus, is it due to fatty liver problem ah,.
respected sir i am suffering from non alcohlic fatty liver since last one year, my SGOT & SGPT always near about 100 and 125 respectively. UD-liv 150 and liver tonic also taken three or four months but no response or recovery is seen. also i am suffering with over weight. my age is 34 year. please send the treatment and diet chart.
I think you need to rethink some of your advice of diet re fatty liver. Too much fruit is not good. Fruit is nearly pure sugar (fructose) which converts to fat in the liver.
This is also true to for veg juices, in particularly carrot and beet, high in sugar.
Carbs need to be avoided and there are soem recent double blind studies which confirm low carb diet will reverse fatty liver disease.
Fruit is carb = sugar
I have been diagnosed with Fatty Liver for last 1 yr.

My younger brother (29 Yrs) is suffering from Fatty Liver. He was just a social drinker, means oncec in a month. Second he does daily exercise. mainly body building exercise and having a very good muscle body. He is doing GYM from last 7 yrs. Only bad thing in life style is that he is in marketing so bound to take food from outside.
Now what life style / food habiy he shoud follow?
There are a few good articles on Fatty Liver in this column. Please read them carefully and try to follow them strictly.Since your brother is in the marketing line, apart from the food he takes outside as mentioned by you, if his work entails travelling, there is every chance of his having different kinds of food every day at different places.. This is a serious negative food habit. This can nullify the effect of all the good routine he may follow. His food habit can affect his medical treatment also. Better consult a good doctor, place before him all these facts and strictly follow his advice. The articles here will also help him to a great extent. He is young, 29 and so do no not neglect his health condition.
Still waiting for the reply for the question which i posted on 01. Jun, 2011 at 5:06 pm
I appreciate if i could hear something on this
Just now via sonography reports I have told that I have fatty liver. I used to consume alcohol moderately in the past, but off late I am off alcohol. I love diary products, cant resist butter.
My weigth is 93 kgs, and fat on abdomen, hips, and lower back. My arms/legs are thin.
Shape i can say like a coke bottle. Cholestrol ratio is poor. High Bp tablets taking for past 6 years. Rest of my health is normal.
I have been losing weight and get loose, then gain again. YoYo case I admit.
Confused state of mind. I have all the pathology reports and seeing a doctor tomorow to know on line of treatment.
ICan you throw some light for my future guidance
Can you throw some light to help me how I should go about.
Dear Harish Shani,
I have seen the message about your health. I am not a doctor ,but from what little I have read from books and journals, I am writing to you, not to frighten you at all. .
You have mentioned that you have fatty liver as diagonised from sonography tests.You say you have a liking for dairy products and butter.You have left moderate consumption of alcohol which is a good sign. But, you must note that it is a mistake to think that you have to be a heavy drinker to run into health problems. Alcoholic hepatitis ,cirrhosis of the liver are some of the serious liver diseases. It can take 10 to 15 years drinking over a period of time to harm your liver. Please note that there should be very little or no fat in the liver.
You have not given your height and age except telling that you are 93 kgs in weight which to me looks to be on the high side. Your waist line must be pretty large and you have fat deposits on hips and thighs. It is not good. The waistline of a male should be less than 102 cms or 40 inches. You have described the shape of your body as that of a coke bottle. It sbould be as that of an hour glass, narrow in the middle if I may say so..
Taking tablets for high BP for the last 6 years is not a good at all which means your BP is not responding to medicines..
Personally, I feel you need immediate medical treatment for your multiple health problems and you must without any further loss of time see a Specialist Doctor and start taking treatment. I earnestly request you to do the same immediately. I repeat I am not a Doctor. Wish you all the best.
I am diagnosed with fatty liver.

OUR BODY._ LIVER INCLUDED.
Many people these days complain of fatty liver, as can be seen from the various mails received in this column. There should be no reason for such complaints when our body is a magnificiently engineered self-healing organ which can do all healing and repair work for virtually any health condition as long as one supplies nutritious diet to the body and engages himself seriously in some form of physical exercise. Has any one seriously thought about the reasons for their falling victim to such serious health problems. ?. A little knowledge about the working of our body will bring in some sort of an awareness in one and help him to take delicate care of his body. When our body is considered as a magnificently engineered self- healing organ, that does all healing and repair work, it is all the more necessary that one knows as to what the great work our body is doing to stay fit and fine all the 24 ><7 hours.
Reproduced below is a very interesting description about the routine things that happen from 9 at night till morning 9 in one's body.Very interesting it is. Just as we have a plan or programme to do work each day and children have a time table for their studies in different periods in the school , our body also has a schedule during which periods it performs its duties without any break unless it is sick. . What is that schedule ?. Please read on and try to remember some of the salient points.
Here is the body schedule:-
a) Night at 9 pm – 11pm:
This is the time for eliminating unnecessary toxic chemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time- duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health. Please remember this.
b) Night at 11 pm – 1am:
The de-toxification process in the liver goes on , and ideally this should be done in a deep sleep state.
c) Very Early morning at 1am – 3am:
De-toxification process in the gall goes on , Here also ideally done in a deep sleep state.
d) Early morning 3am – 5am :
De-toxification in the lungs. When this goes on , there will be sometimes a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time.Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so that it does not to interfere with toxin removal process.
e) Morning 5am – 7am :
De-toxification in the colon, You should empty your bowels. One should make it a habit.
f) Morning 7am – 9am:
Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine. You should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30 am is very beneficial for those wanting to stay fit.
Here is a word of caution.
1) Those who always skip breakfast, should change their habits. Rather than having no breakfast at all, it is better that they eat breakfast late until 9 am -10am, without avoiding it.
2) Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary toxic chemicals from the body
g) Besides the above, from midnight to 4 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.Therefore, try to have a good sleep on time and don't sleep late.
In order that one cooperates with the various functions of the body which is very important , one has to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. On reading the above details carefully , one will understand that maintaining both good eating habits and time condition are very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to the "schedule.
Knowledge of these, and a little care and watchfulness on our part to maintain good health can pave the way in the long run for real health, efficiency and longevity.
