    When the liver cells become damaged...you

    may not feel anything at all, except tiredness.

    When fat builds up inside the liver...it causes

    extra pressure in the liver since the liver

    is surrounded by a membrane capsule.

    The fat can push the nucleus of the cell

    out of place. If the cells become damaged,

    the immune system of our body responds

    to this and causes inflammation to develop

    in the liver, also, that only adds to the

    pressure and will cause the liver to enlarge

    in size.

    There are different causes of fatty liver disease:

    alcohol consumption, diabetes, insulin

    resistance, high cholesterol/triglycerides,

    and weight gain...there are others also.

    If the doctor believes that your is weight gain...

    it is best to follow closely what diet you

    should be on. He should of referred you

    to a dietitian/nutritionist.

    The weight loss will help remove the

    fat from the liver and may help reverse

    any damage that may be done to the liver

    cells.

    If it continues on and there is damage

    to the cells that cause inflammation...

    known as steatohepatitis (steato means

    fat, hepat means liver, itis means

    inflammation) it can later lead to death

    of the liver cells and an irreversable

    disease known as Cirrhosis of the liver.

    If you have no appetite at all and won't eat...

    this is also not good. You need a certain

    amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins to

    help your body heal. I would definitely

    talk with your doctor about not eatting at

    all. He may recommend a supplement

    for you that will still help you lose weight.

    The symptoms of something being wrong

    may not occur, in some people, until the

    cells start to die off.

    Hope this information is of some help to

    you.

    Fatty liver disease affects a whopping 30% of the population. That's 30 out of every 100 people! And some estimates have it at 33%.

    And if you're overweight, it's even worse overweight people are extremely more likely than healthy weight individuals to develop this condition.

    Include at lowest 10 to 15 grams of protein, which suppresses ghrelin, the hormone that stimulates your hunger. Include eggs, which are that can control hunger.
