SOME DISEASES OF THE LIVER AND THE ROLE THAT GSH PLAYS
Alcohol And The Liver:
Alcohol is the most heavily consumed toxin in the world. Glutathione (GSH) is vital to your health, wellness, and longevity.
When the liver has too much alcohol to handle, normal liver function may be interrupted leading to a chemical imbalance. If the liver is required to detoxify alcohol continuously, liver cells may be destroyed or altered resulting in fat deposits (fatty liver), and more seriously, either inflammation (alcoholic hepatitis), and/or permanent scarring (cirrhosis). Liver cancer can also result from alcohol induced liver disease.
Alcohol Is A Major Glutathione Depleting Agent / Gsh Protects The Liver Cells.
AlcoholGSH represents the inseparable relationship between the detrimental effects of alcohol and the beneficial effects of Glutathione to health.
In patients with hepatitis B virus infections, GSH and GSH/GSSG levels were significantly low compared with those in controls
To study reduced Glutathione (GSH) as a marker of oxidative stress in hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection its association during pregnancy, and to clarify with pregnancy outcome.
Oxidative stress is present in HEV infection during pregnancy, AS SHOWN BY LOW GSH, and is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes.
Autoimmune hepatitis is a disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the liver. The best way to describe this disease is to break the term down into its composite words. Autoimmune refers to the body’s own immune system attacking another part of the body. Hepatitis refers to inflammation of the liver, which can range from mild to severe.
Our results show that patients with chronic HCV infection are under the influence of oxidative stress associated with lower levels of antioxidant enzymes
