To successfully treat and prevent recurrence of fatty liver we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors. We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow fatty liver to develop?"
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind fatty liver consists of three steps:
Have you been diagnosed with fatty liver?
Possible responses:→ I've never been tested / don't know
→ No, my liver was confirmed to be normal
→ Yes, I have mild fatty liver
→ Yes, I have moderate fatty liver
→ Yes, I have severe fatty liver
Malnutrition can result in an enlarged fatty liver, which can result in ascites.
Scientists believe a fatty liver can occur when the immune system triggers inflammation in other parts of the body. These problems are usually mild and go away when the colitis is treated.
