Does a fatty liver swell? Does it affect your stomach?

✅ Answers

  • 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.

    Can’t breathe?? URGENT.?

    Answers Favorite AnswerThis is actually quite urgent and you need to get medical attention right away! I mean now, and not tomorrow or the next day. Anything that affects your breathing in that way needs to be investigated. It could turn out to be something like the beginning of a chest infection but you do need to get your lungs and heart checked out to be on the safe side. It could also be something like asthma, but it is impossible to say on the internet exactly what it is as you need to be examined. Please, for your own sake tell your parents and ask them to get you to a doctor today. It is concerning that you have this feeling of pressure on your lungs and this needs to be seen to. You need a few simple tests, examination and some treatment. Good luck** I stress again, do not delay in getting to a doctor.You need to go to the ER.Please get urgent medical advice - go to A & E now.
