Symptoms of Fatty Liver Disease

In the beginning there simply are no symptoms of fatty liver disease. Because the liver stores a certain amount of fat you will be unaware that your liver is having to store to much. The more sedentary your lifestyle and the constant consumption of the wrong types of food, the more fat the liver has to store.

It may take several years before you start having symptoms and in a large number of cases it will be a visit to the doctor for fatigue, a general feeling of being unwell or a vague discomfort in the upper right of the abdomen, that  will expose the possibility of having fatty liver disease.
