What Is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)?

NAFLD happens without alcohol consumption and includes two types:

  • Simple Fatty Liver: Fat accumulates in the liver with little or no inflammation or damage.
  • Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH): Fat buildup in the liver leads to inflammation and damage, potentially progressing to fibrosis, cirrhosis, or liver cancer.
