Imagine the fat around your stomach and then picture that fat on your liver.  

Fatty liver is just what it sounds like... fat deposits on your liver.  It is caused by a diet high in fat.

You don't have to be overweight to have a fatty liver, but over 50% of the time you are.

Fatty liver is a serious liver condition which will decrease your life expectancy.

My understanding is that there are several fatty liver diseases.

Last October I developed "fatty liver of pregnancy" in my 7th month pf pregnancy, which had symptoms like a terrible flu, and quickly put my life in danger. My blood pressure skyrocketed, I had intense pain, I turned yellow, and my urine was nearly coffee colored. The way the cause was explained to me was as a problem breaking down fatty amino acids, in my son's liver as well as my own.

In my follow up research and visits to doctors I have seen that there are fatty liver diseases that are related to alcohol, weight problems, diabetes and pregnancy. They have similarities but are distinct.
