Many health organizations advise against the consumption of high amounts of coconut oil due to its high levels of saturated fat. Coconut oil has up to 10 times as much saturated fat as other non hydrogenated oils. Safflower, corn, sunflower, peanut or canola (rapeseed).
Coconut oil contains a large proportion of lauric acid—a saturated fat that raises blood cholesterol levels by increasing the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.
If one has fatty liver disease it would not be advisable to indulge in. As high cholesterol and obesity increase the risk and the progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease is the fastest growing cause of cirrhosis and the need for liver transplants.
Treat and cure your hepatitis C and your liver will be fine.
