Hepatic Steatosis (Fatty Liver Disease)
Hepatic steatosis, commonly known as fatty liver disease, is a condition in which excess fat accumulates in the liver cells. It is most commonly caused by obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, and alcohol abuse. Other factors that may contribute to the development of the condition include rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and certain medications. Risk factors for the disease include being overweight or obese, having type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and having high levels of triglycerides in the blood. In some cases, fatty liver disease can progress to more serious conditions such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.
