Cirrhosis of Liver - When healthy fats become dangerous

Fad diets are getting more and more attention these recent years. Among all the popular dieting methods, keto diet is quickly becoming the first go-to option for losing weight.

Keto diet features a high consumption of healthy fats and protein, with a very restricted amount of carbohydrates, aiming to force the body into a state of ketosis. Instead of glucose, ketones, which are produced by the liver, are used as the only fuel source for cells.

The sudden high production of ketones is of course over burdening the liver (which cirrhosis of liver happened), but the real danger behind keto diet lies in the high amount of fats consumed.
