Types, Causes and Symptoms of Fatty Liver

Types, Causes and Symptoms of Fatty Liver

Fatty liver is a condition where excess fat is deposited on this organ. Also called as steatosis, this condition happens when more than 5- 10 percent of the weight of the liver is made up of fat.

Fatty liver is a common condition among people. A study from coastal regions of India found ~ 25% of healthy persons had patients had fatty liver on ultrasound.

It can occur at all ages including childhood, highest prevalence is in 40–50 year age group. Prevalence more in patient who are obese and in diabetic patients.

Types of Fatty Liver

1 Alcoholic fatty liver: This condition occurs when there is a heavy consumption of alcohol. Gastroenterologists recommend abstention from alcohol for this condition to subside. If the patient continues to consume alcohol, then liver cirrhosis may develop.

2 Non alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL): One may develop a fatty liver even if one is not an alcoholic. The liver in some cases is unable to process the fat in cells causing them to build-up on the organ.

When more than 10% of the liver is made of fat then this condition is called Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFL).

Non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): When fatty liver is associated with inflammation in liver patient is said to be having Non alcoholic steatohepatitis. NASH is a more advanced stage of NAFLD, and has a higher risk of progressing to liver cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). These condition display symptoms like jaundice, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite and abdominal pain. Blood test (LFT) shows raised enzymes level. Approx 5-8% of the Indian population has NASH. Consult a doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

3 Fatty liver during pregnancy: Occurring mainly in the third trimester, the symptoms of this condition are vomiting, nausea, pain the right part of the abdomen and jaundice.

Symptoms

During the early stages (fatty liver) of the disease, patients usually have no symptoms directly related to liver disease. However, people may experience a vague abdominal discomfort. If their liver is inflamed (NASH) then they may display symptoms of poor appetite, weight loss, pain in the abdomen and disorientation.

What causes fatty liver?

The most common cause of fatty liver is alcoholism. When the human liver is unable to metabolize fat fast enough or when there is an excess accumulation of fat on the liver cells then the liver becomes fatty. However, intake of high-fat foods may not result in a fatty liver.

Predisposing factor:

1. Diabetes mellitus

2. Obesity or being overweight

3. Hyperlipidemia or the condition where there are high levels of fat in the blood

4. Genetic reasons

5. Rapid loss of weight

6. Drugs: Aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, tetracycline etc. cause side effects which also leads to fatty liver

7. Nutritional status (eg, overnutrition, severe malnutrition, total parenteral nutrition [TPN], or starvation diet)

8. Other health problems (eg, Hepatitis C infection, celiac sprue and Wilson disease)

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The same gastric trouble is causing this problem. Take plenty of water at least 2.5-3 litres a day. avoid taking tea/coffee on empty stomach, even your evening tea also take with some snack. avoid spices, chillies, masala. at least lessen them. Do not take food full stomach. If you are constipated get it treated. Have good sleep. follow these to give relief, if not come back again

Try the tips to cure acidity:: 1. Drink 100-500 ml of tender coconut water twice a day for relief from hyperacidity Mix equal parts of powdered fennel, licorice root, basil leaves and coriander seeds. Have ½ teaspoon of this mixture with ½ teaspoon of powdered rock candy (or unrefined sugar) 15 minutes before lunch and dinner. 2.Make a powdered mixture of equal parts of rock candy (or unrefined sugar), fennel, and green cardamom.

Perineum and urine problems Male, 25 I have been suffering from anal discomfort or pain in rectum 1 hour after defecate without bleeding, abdominal bloating and sometimes sticky stools and not urinating properly. I have done with MRI Perineum and KUB but could not find anything. As according me it could be Levator Ani Syndrome Symptoms. Please have a look on my case.

Hi lybrate-user, Pain after defecation is usually due to Anal Fissure and sticky stools is usually because of amoebiasis. Your MRI is normal so I don't think you have perineal muscles or prolapse of rectum problems. I would suggest that you take more salad in your diet to pass soft stool. Salad upto 70grams I think daily should help you. Regards Hopefully your questions is answered. Homoeopathic can give good results for Lower GI problems.

Sticky moist feeling in anus sometimes itching, burning after latrine. From 3-4 days. Chronic acidity and indigestion.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , I think you have developed an anal fissure which is due to passage of hard faeces due to constipation or severe forceful diarrhoea. Fissure in itself increases constipation. Constipation is not a disease but lifestyle problem. Simply treat constipation by laxative, high fiber and high residue diet and apllication of zincal ointment in side anus especially before going toilet.
