Possible Fatty Liver complications

If untreated, fatty liver disease could lead to complicated liver diseases.

It usually takes years or even decades until a typical fatty liver patient develops one of these advanced liver diseases.

Possible Fatty Liver Complications if untreated

  • NASH – a more severe form of fatty liver, which causes inflammation and liver cell damage, in addition of fat in your liver.
  • Hepatitis – a viral virus that damages the liver.
  • Cirrhosis – a severe liver condition, that kills liver cells and leads to a liver failure.

This is why it is so important to treat a fatty liver as early as diagnosed, and avoid these kind of complications. A non-alcoholic fatty liver disease treatment usually does not involve typical drugs as we are used for other conditions, but only involves losing weight, a change on your eating habits, getting physically active.
