What are the symptoms present? Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, refers to a wide range of conditions caused by a build-up of fat within the liver cells. The presence of fibrosis, seen in stage 3 is associated with persistent inflammation in the liver which results in the generation of fibrous scar tissue around the liver cells and blood vessels. This fibrous tissue replaces some of the healthy liver tissue, but there is still enough healthy tissue for the liver to continue to function normally. It is important that you check with your attending physician for proper management. Simple fatty liver may go away if the underlying cause is managed. Lifestyle changes is highly recommended to prevent the disease progressing to a more serious stage. Losing weight, smoking cessation, avoiding alcohol and taking medication may help. Take care and do keep us posted.
