Fatty Liver

Fatty liver is a widespread liver disease in which there is an increased storage of fat in the liver tissue. While the early stage is asymptomatic, in the later stage fatigue, discomfort and pain in the right upper abdomen can arise. Fatty liver can lead to serious liver problems such as liver inflammation and liver fibrosis. Risk factors include increased alcohol consumption, obesity, diabetes, and an unhealthy diet. Therefore, treatment options focus primarily on lifestyle changes.
