Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD):

It is a very common disorder and refers to a group of conditions where there is accumulation of excess fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol. The most common form of NAFLD is a non serious condition called fatty liver. In fatty liver, fat accumulates in the liver cells.

NAFLD is increasingly common around the world, especially in Western nations. In the United States, it is the most common form of chronic liver disease, affecting about one-quarter of the population.

NAFLD usually causes no signs and symptoms. When it does, they may include:
• Fatigue
• Pain or discomfort in the upper right abdomen

Possible signs and symptoms:
• Abdominal swelling (ascites)
• Enlarged blood vessels just beneath the skin's surface
• Enlarged spleen
• Red palms
• Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)

• Overweight or obesity
• Insulin resistance, in which your cells don't take up sugar in response to the hormone insulin
• High blood sugar (hyperglycemia), indicating prediabetes or type 2 diabetes
• High levels of fats, particularly triglycerides, in the blood

Risk factors:
• High cholesterol
• High levels of triglycerides in the blood
• Metabolic syndrome
• Obesity, particularly when fat is concentrated in the abdomen
• Polycystic ovary syndrome
• Sleep apnea
• Type 2 diabetes
• Underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism)

The main complication of NAFLD and NASH is cirrhosis, which is late stage scarring in the liver. Cirrhosis occurs in response to liver injury, such as the inflammation in NASH.
