“Fatty Liver Disease” describes a range of conditions caused by an accumulation of fat in the liver. The disease affects about 10% of Australians and is the most common reason for mildly abnormal results on liver function testing. Fatty Liver occurs when fat in the liver cells represents more than 10% of the liver’s weight. It does not cause pain, nausea or fatty food intolerance, but does sometimes indicate other health problems.
