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.
