Discover Your Metabolic Type and Renew Your Liver for Life

by Hanouneh, IbrahimKirkpatrick, Kristin

Dietician Kristin Kirkpatrick and Dr. Ibrahim Hanouneh offer a new look at liver disease through four types of conditions, with practical plans for liver health. This is a follow up to their 2017 book Skinny Liver.

One in four people worldwide has fatty liver, and it is on the rise - the prevalence and severity of fatty liver can be expected to increase in parallel with the global rise of type 2 diabetes. New research shows that liver disease and weight are not necessarily a direct correlation and in Regenerative Health, Kirkpatrick and Hanouneh take a closer look to unpack what this means for diagnosis and treatment, specifically that it should be more personalized. They introduce the four metabolic types and show readers how to determine their type and offers prescriptive plans accordingly. As experts in liver disease, Kirkpatrick and Hanouneh are the dynamic duo of hepatic health.

Since Skinny Liver was published, the prevalence and severity of fatty liver disease has only gotten worse - now one in four people worldwide has been diagnosed with it, while millions more remain unaware that they are somewhere on the liver disease spectrum. Most alarmingly, this worsening trend is also true for children and young people - and since the longer you have the disease the more likely it is to progress past the reversible stage, this is not good news. Now dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick and gastroenterologist Dr. Ibrahim Hanouneh offer the latest research and treatment plans to love your liver for life. New research has evolved our medical understanding of obesity, which has been viewed as a primary risk factor for fatty liver. We now know that metabolic health is a better indicator of risk than weight. In fact, there is a movement afoot to change the name of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD; the first phase of fatty liver disease) to metabolic associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD). What this all means is that the focus on treating fatty liver is less on losing weight by following a diet and more on changing how you eat and adopting the lifestyle habits that have been shown to reduce risk of liver disease and the metabolic dysfunction that so often precedes it.

The approach to treating fatty liver disease is now much more individualized. Regenerative Health introduces the four metabolic profiles - lean, metabolically healthy; lean, metabolically unhealthy; non-lean, metabolically healthy; and non-lean, metabolically unhealthy. Once you determine which quadrant you fall into, you'll learn how to customize the Regenerative Health eating and lifestyle plan to your particular metabolic profile. Not only will you treat your current issues, but you'll also learn to how to prevent more from developing. With practical tips on nutrition, exercise, and wellness, Regenerative Health allows you to discover that you can impact almost all factors that put you at a greater risk for fatty liver disease, putting your health back in your own hands.
