The most common chronic liver ailment in the children of the United States is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. A study funded by the National Institutes of Health has found that a specific form of Vitamin E can treat the condition in children. The outcome is significant owing to the fact that children suffering from this ailment are at high risk of developing liver cirrhosis and heart disease.
The disease is notorious of mimicking the symptoms of other liver ailments. Biopsy is carried out to confirm the condition. Using this technique, the experts found that giving Vitamin E to the affected children for 96 weeks completely cured the condition in 58 percent children in comparison to 41 percent children who were given metformin and 28 percent patients who received no treatment.
The experts are convinced that giving the new form of Vitamin E can prove to be much safer and beneficial remedy for treating Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in children.
