Fatty Liver

Fatty liver, also known as fatty liver disease (FLD), is a reversible condition where large vacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells via the process of steatosis (i.e. abnormal retention of lipids within a cell).
What is Fatty Liver?

Fatty liver is a very common disorder and up to 20 percent of adults and approximately 5 percent of children are affected.
