Fatty liver

A fatty liver contains an excessive amount of fat and the normal healthy liver tissue is partly replaced with areas of unhealthy fats. In such a liver, the liver cells and the spaces in the liver are filled with fat so the liver becomes slightly enlarged and heavier. The liver has a yellow greasy appearance. There may be discomfort over the liver, which is situated in the right upper abdominal area.

It is often possible to see the excess fat in the liver in an ultrasound scan of the liver. There may also be elevation of the liver enzymes. Blood tests may show that you have mild inflammation in your liver. An ultrasound of the liver can show a fatty liver or an enlarged liver.

Generally, there are no major symptoms; but, you may feel discomfort (at the level of the liver), fatigue, and a general feeling of being unwell such as

  • Feel very tired all the times
  • have elevated cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood
  • have problems with your immune system


  • Have a positive and healthy lifestyle
  • Avoid eating food with high saturated fats
  • Take food with high in fibre
  • Try to lose weight gradually if you are overweight
  • Do suitable and adequate exercise at least 4 times a week through different activities
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Avoid abdominal fat.
