Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Spot

Narrator: Like many of us,
Lorenzo struggles with weight. Lorenzo: I grew up in a family of cooks, so I have a love of food. Narrator: That was okay
when he was younger. Lorenzo: I was very active all my life. Narrator: But now,
arthritis gets in the way. Lorenzo: Some days I don’t feel good. It’s kinda been hard to be active, and so I’ve put on weight. Narrator: A recent check-up
really got his attention. Doctor: Your test results are back; you have non-alcoholic
fatty liver disease. It can lead to scar tissue,
you can have cirrhosis. It can also lead to liver cancer. Lorenzo: It was a shock. Doctor: Unfortunately, we
do not have any magic pill. Lorenzo: The doctor told
me that it was in my hands; I had to eat better, and
I had to lose weight. Narrator: So that’s what Lorenzo’s doing. Lorenzo: On the days that I feel good, I make sure I exercise. I’m still struggling with food, but I’m trying to make better choices. My family is really important to me, and I want to be around for them. (upbeat music)
