Q & A

What is fatty liver disease? Symptoms, causes and diagnosis

Dr Devan Vani, Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist explains that excess fat build-up in the liver is referred to as fatty liver disease. Obesity, diabetes, and excessive cholesterol levels are all linked to it. The mainstay of treatment is lifestyle adjustments such as eating a low-fat, low-carbohydrate diet and exercising regularly in the hopes of losing 5-10% of body weight.
