In modern gastroenterology, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) occupies a special place, in the pathogenesis of which the two stages of development are distinguished ("two-hit model"): I hit – is the development of steatosis, based on insulin resistance, and II hit – the transition of steatosis to steatohepatitis caused by course of oxidative stress. Recent studies indicate a significant role in the development of NAFLD adipocytokines and inflammatory mediators (leptin, tumour necrosis factor-α, adiponectin, interleukins, etc.), which contribute to increased insulin resistance, and also support the inflammatory response and stimulate fibrogenesis. In the medical rehabilitation of NAFLD, along with drug therapy, non-drug methods are widely used, in particular, the use of drinking mineral waters inside and outside, which contribute to the activation of the basic bioregulatory systems of the body.
Keywords: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, health-resort therapy.
