  Most liver cancer cases are due to stay up late

  It is clinically proven that except for genetic, infectious factors, most liver diseases are due to "stay up late”. Heavy workload and large amount quantity of learning often cause mental fatigue and physical fatigue, so if coupled with the long-term lack of sleep or poor quality sleep, it would lead to liver disease’ symptoms slowly.

  Clinical observation found that most of fatty liver patients have these common symptoms, such as insomnia, mood swings, fatigue, etc. So for fatty liver cases, especially severe fatty liver cases, they should emphasize the importance of sleep. Rest can reduce the consumption of physical strength, and also reduce glycogenolysis, protein decomposition and production of lactic acid after activity, so as to reduce physiological burden on the liver. Therefore, bed rest can increase blood flow to the liver and increase the supply of blood, oxygen and nutrition, promoting the recovery of liver cells.

  Sufficient sleep can increase the liver immunity

  It has been observed that the hepatic blood flow when in the standing up is 40% less than that when in lying, if standing up and accompanied by movement, it would be reduced by 80 % -85 % of the liver blood flow when lying in the bed. Liver blood flow reduction will directly affect the nutrition and oxygen supply of the liver. However, too much emphasis on bed rest and sleep will also add to the burden of the patient's mental, impact regulatory function of the brain and coordination of internal organs’ functions, so it is not conducive to the body's metabolism.

  Research experimental results show that if a person sleeps less than 4 hours per night, his immune system will be declined by 50%. We asked 42 hepatitis B virus carriers not to sleep during the period of 3am -7am, when we checked the 42 persons in the day time, we found that the activity of immune cells of their bodies was weakened by 31%, but after these volunteers get enough sleep, the immunity has completely been restored.
