Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represents a spectrum of disorders ranging from simple steatosis or fatty change (retention of fat in the liver cells) to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) – a more serious condition characterised by inflammation. NASH can result in progressive fibrosis (initial scarring), cirrhosis (irreversible scarring of the liver), and an increased risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (primary liver cancer).
