FATTY LIVER

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the term for a range of conditions caused by a build-up of fat in the liver.

 

Having high levels of fat in your liver is also associated with an increased risk of serious health problems, such as diabeteshigh blood pressure and kidney disease.

 

If detected and managed at an early stage, it's possible to stop NAFLD getting worse and reduce the amount of fat in your liver.

 

The main stages of NAFLD are:

  • Simple fatty liver (steatosis) – a largely harmless build-up of fat in the liver cells that may only be diagnosed during tests carried out for another reason

  • Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) – a more serious form of NAFLD, where the liver has become inflamed

  • Fibrosis – where persistent inflammation causes scar tissue around the liver and nearby blood vessels, but the liver is still able to function normally

  • Cirrhosis – the most severe stage, occurring after years of inflammation, where the liver shrinks and becomes scarred and lumpy; this damage is permanent and can lead to liver failure (where your liver stops working properly) and liver cancer

 

Most people with NAFLD will not develop any serious problems, but if you're diagnosed with the condition it's a good idea to take steps to stop it getting any worse.

 

There's currently no specific medication for NAFLD, but taking prevention and making healthy lifestyle choices can help.
