Hepatic steatosis, often known as fatty liver, is a disorder in which fat accumulates in the liver. While tiny amounts of fat in the liver are normal, high-fat levels are problematic and can lead to liver inflammation. This will cause liver damage, scarring, and potentially the liver's inability to function.
A fatty liver that develops as a result of excessive alcohol intake is known as alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD), whereas a fatty liver that develops as a result of no alcohol use is known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Some major symptoms of fatty liver include weight loss, weakness, fatigue, nosebleeds, itchy skin, abdominal pain and swelling, confusion, etc.
