Dietary Minerals are the group of minerals essential for our body to sustain normal functions and physical health.
In General, potassium is a very essential mineral to the human
body for maintaining to build proteins and muscle, break down
carbohydrates, maintain normal body growth and normal heart electricity,
Fatty liver disease.
Fatty liver disease is defined as a condition of accumulation of fat
in the liver, including people who drink little or no alcohol (Non
alcohol fatty disease) or who are excessive alcohol drinking (Alcohol
fatty liver disease). The disease can even occur after a short period of
heavy drinking (acute alcoholic liver disease). More than 15 million
people in the U.S. either abuse or overuse alcohol with fatty liver
diseases with fat makes up 5-10 percent of liver weight.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) encompasses a wide spectrum
of clinical conditions, actually representing an emerging disease of
great clinical interest(4).
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
are associated to increased risk of metabolic syndrome. In the study of
in 8592 subjects with NAFLD (30·3%) and gradually decreased across serum
potassium quartiles, to investigate the association of serum potassium with the risk of prevalent NAFLD. The result showed a significant relation between serum potassium
level and NAFLD in women, younger subjects,
those with insulin resistance and central obesity. Other in the study to
investigate the association between NAFLD and primary aldosteronism
(PA), and to identify determinants of NAFLD in this condition, showed
that Serum potassium was lower in primary
aldosteronism (PA) than in LREH patients with NAFLD (P < 0.001),
while it was similar in PA and LREH patients without NAFLD.
