Fatty liver disease: High levels of inflammation cause abdominal symptoms – what to spot

Digestive Disorders Associates lists those who are most at risk of developing fatty liver disease which includes:

You’re overweight or obese; although we can’t definitively say that obesity causes fatty liver disease, the greater your weight, the higher your risk

You have type 2 diabetes — as many as half of those with type 2 diabetes may develop fatty liver disease

You have insulin resistance (a precursor to type 2 diabetes, in which your body is unable to respond to the hormone insulin correctly)

You have high triglyceride levels, high HDL or low HDL cholesterol

You have metabolic syndrome (a collection of risk factors, including insulin resistance, high blood pressure, central obesity and high cholesterol or triglycerides).
