FAQ
Q1: What is non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)?
  • NAFLD is a term used to describe the accumulation of fat within the liver that is not caused by excessive consumption of alcohol.
  • NAFLD is more likely to happen in people who are overweight or obese and diabetic.
  • In some people with NAFLD, the accumulation of fat can lead to inflammation and scarring in the liver which is known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
  • Those with NASH may develop fibrosis where persistent inflammation in the liver causes the generation of fibrous scar tissues around the liver cells and blood vessels.
  • At the final stage, the progressive development of scar tissues distorts liver structure and eventually resulting in cirrhosis.
  • The damage caused by cirrhosis is permanent and irreversible. It progresses slowly over years and gradually disturbing your liver function which can lead to liver failure and death.
Q2: Is obesity associated with NAFLD?
  • The basic cause of NAFLD is insulin resistance, a condition where the body is unable to utilize insulin efficiently.
  • This condition is mainly due to obesity, especially central obesity (excessive abdominal fats accumulate around stomach and abdomen).
  • Fatty liver can disappear if the person is successfully losing weight.
  • However, it may progress to next stage from time to time when there is accumulation of fat in the liver.
