NAFLD.Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

This showed up on an abdominal scan I had a few years back. I'd never heard of it before but now know its due to a poor diet and sometimes can be hereditary. I now try to watch what I eat and leave out the cake and biccies. Anyone else have this?

Netflix have an autopsy episode that shows effect of fat on abdominal organs, e.g., liver, kidney.

Yes have seen it and it put the breeze up me. That woman was the same age that I am now. One good thing, the liver can improve with a diet change.

A young friend of mine (25 at the time) had a fatty liver. They never really knew what caused it but she did lose a bit of weight and cut down her alcohol and the issue resolved itself. Genetics must play a part though because a youthful liver can withstand a lot!

Diet and exercise are definitely the way to go. Cutting sugar, and possibly going low carb/keto will also do wonders. Our poor livers are having to deal with so many sugary foods these days :(

It's quite common and can be picked up in blood tests too (fatty liver).

It goes along with type 2 diabetes. caused by too much sugar and carbs.
