The fat inside the liver can cause damage to
the liver cells. It can push the nucleus of
the cells out of place. The liver is surrounded
by a membrane capsule. It the fat does
damage the cells, the immune system
of the body will respond to this and
cause inflammation to develop inside the
liver, also, this can cause even more
pressure and the liver can enlarge in size.
Depending on the cause of the fatty liver…
in certain cases where it may be caused
by weight or alcohol…losing weight and
not drinking alcohol may help the fat
leave the liver and reverse the problem.
However, other causes, like diabetes would
be harder to control.
The enlargement of the liver doesn’t
have a direct effect on the stomach. But
having this disease can cause some to
feel bloated and uncomfortable and
some can become nauseated. Each
person is different.
If the liver does enlarge and it is not
caused by alcohol, then it is known as
NASH: Non alcoholic steatohepatitis.
Steato means fat, Hepat means liver
and itis means inflammation.
