Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the term for a range of problems created by a build-up of fat in the liver. Having high levels of fat in your liver is also connected with an increased risk of problems such as diabetic issues, cardiac arrest and strokes. The fat deposits can cause liver damages. You can also develop severe liver scarring, called cirrhosis. Heart stroke, disease, and diabetes mellitus are more common in people with fatty liver. These include: Breaking down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates; Making a substance called bile that helps break down fats; Releasing and storing sugar into the blood to offer the body energy; Removing toxins from the blood; Helping with blood clotting. A healthy and balanced liver might have some fat. Most people with NAFLD have increased fat stores and no inflammation. Without fat burning or workout, these people can develop liver scarring.
