Fatty Liver Disease

Steatohepatitis (also known as fatty liver disease) is a liver disease characterized by inflammation of the liver with concurrent fat accumulation in liver. It has been shown that low levels of methionine can lead to Steatohepatitis. A deficiency in Choline, an essential nutrient, can lead to a fatty liver.[2] In addition, Methionine is is synthesized with the help of folate and vitamin B12 enzymes[1] which those with Crohn's Disease are commonly deficient in. If you are found to have Steatohepatitis, also get your folate and vitamin B12 levels checked.
