Our expert says:
Macrovascular fatty liver is when fat accumulates in the liver cells, pushing the cell nucleus to one side ( it then looks like a signet ring on microscopy) These cells can not work as they should, they can develop inflammation, cells may die and scar tissue can form in the liver, causing permanent liver damage. There is a small risk that cancer can develop in this area (10%) This is also associated with diabetes and fat metabolic disorders, leading to heart attacks and strokes, so you need to check your blood sugar and cholesterol regularly and eat a healthy low fat, high fibre, low sugar diet.
