Non Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

What is Non Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease?

This is the name given to a condition in which there is too much fat in the liver.  Carrying a small amount of fat in the liver causes no major problems.  However, the effect of having fat in the liver over a long period may lead to inflammation causing scarring in a small number of people, this can progress to a potentially life threatening condition known as cirrhosis.  Cirrhosis is the result of progressive, long term damage to the liver and is the 3rd stage of liver disease.  Click here for more information.
