Fatty Liver (Non-Alcoholic) disease is the accumulation of excess fat in the liver cells, and is a common liver complaint. It affects about 10 percent of people. It is normal for the liver to have some fat, but if fat accumulates more than 10 percent of the liver’s weight, then the liver is termed fatty, and it may give rise to serious complications.

Fatty liver may or may not cause damage, but sometimes the excess fat may lead to inflammation of the liver. This condition is called steatohepatitis and does cause liver damage. When inflammation of fatty liver is linked to alcohol abuse, it is known as alcoholic steatohepatitis or alcoholic fatty liver. Otherwise, the condition is called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, i.e. NASH.

An inflamed liver, if not treated timely becomes scarred and hardened over time. This condition is called cirrhosis and is serious and may lead to liver failure. NASH is one of the top three leading causes of liver cirrhosis.
