Fatty Liver

Gastroenterologist (gut physician)

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the term for a range of conditions caused by the built up of fat in the liver. A healthy liver should contain little or no fat. Early stage NAFLD does not usually cause any harm, but can lead to serious liver damage if it gets worse. Having high level of fats in your liver is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart attacks and strokes, again pointing towards metabolic syndrome. If detected and managed at an early stage it is possible to prevent the progression and even reverse the process
