You should be fine: As long as your green tea is not sweetened with sugar and you are taking your medications with water you should be fine. Remember, moderation is key to everything in life. 3 cups is ok but depends on your cup size. The cup volume should be no more than 4-6 fluid ounces or 120 - 170 ml. Also remember to drink plenty of water daily and Monitor your blood sugar regularly. Take care! ...Read more

Best way to detoxify liver with fatty liver disease and do I need to?

Best way to detoxify liver with fatty liver disease and do I need to?

Not necessarily...: As we age fat deposits build up in our liver; best way to combat this is by being as 'low-fat' as possible; and your body will do the rest. (presuming all of your lab data is normal of course) some say the herb 'milk thistle' can help with detoxification of the liver; but there have been no studies I am aware of to prove this...Strictly an alternative solution. Cheers! ...Read more

If i lose wight will my fatty liver disease go away?

If i lose wight will my fatty liver disease go away?

Can't hurt...: Fatty liver is typically due to obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, too much alcohol, or a combination of these. Lose 1-3 pounds per week (drop 10-20% of present total weight) to address obesity-associated fatty liver. Eat right (minimize fats; supplement fibers), exercise, and you should be fine. Roughly for every 3500 calories you lose, you drop a pound of fat (that's 500 calories a day). ...Read more
