Fatty liver disease
Do you feel weak or tired mostof the time?
Are you overweight, physically inactive, have high cholesterol, diabetes or drink alcohol frequently? 
If you have any of these risk factors, you should get checked by a specialist for Fatty Liver Disease. 
 
You might also be experiencing vague abdominal discomfort and don't know why. It could be that your liver, the largest internal organ in the human body that removes toxins and processes food nutrients, is not functioning properly.
 
The disease is often referred to as the ‘silent killer’ as it can progress for years without symptoms, until liver function is compromised. Fatty liver is caused by the slow build up of abnormal amounts of fat in the liver, which can progress to fibrosis, cirrhosis (irreversible scarring), and liver cancer. 
 
However with prompt treatment, the progression of fatty liver disease can be halted, or even reversed. Even if you are symptom-free, if you have one of the above risk factors, take action now and book an appointment with our liver specialist (Hepatologist) for evaluation. It could be part of your first steps on your journey towards healthier living.
