Effects of sunflower seeds on LFT levels of patients with fatty liver (grade 1)
Objective: The present study was conducted with the aim to assess and analyse the effect of sunflower seeds on the serum LFT (Liver Function Tests). Methods: 60 patients were selected for the study (29 females and 31 males). The patients selected were divided into the case and the control group respectively. Various anthropometric measurements as like Height, Weight, Blood pressure and biochemical parameters as like LFTs (SGOT, SGPT) for these patients were recorded for 6 months pre and post supplementation of the sunflower seeds. Results: The patients that were being fed on the sunflower seeds showed a positive and a faster decrease in their LFT levels (both SGOT and SGPT). The SGOT AND SGPT levels were found to be decreased from 89.7 mg/dl to 38.4 mg/dl in the Case group and 37.6 mg/dl to 40.5 mg/dl in Control group. Conclusion: Sunflower seeds can be well recommended as a household and natural remedy to render control over the raised Liver enzyme levels in the blood serum which could otherwise lead Fatty Liver followed by Liver Damage
