2. Fatty Liver
A fatty liver is a condition whereby fatty deposits embed themselves in the liver over time; it’s generally a consequence of an unhealthy diet that contains a lot of oil and fat, but it can also sometimes be a side-effect of long-term and heavy drinking. In both cases, a fatty liver can be taken as an early sign of damage to the liver – and left untreated, the symptoms of a fatty liver can easily lead to the liver shutting down over time.
If you have a fatty liver, it can be one of the direct causes of elevated levels of liver enzymes in the blood. Your doctor will recommend blood tests as the first course of action to establish this, and then likely some serious lifestyle changes to restore the damage that has been done to your liver and ensure that you live a healthier lifestyle from that point on.
