Hello doctor,

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You seem to be suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This does not require any special treatment.

I suggest you avoid painkillers, alcohol, and reduce weight if you are obese.

I would also recommend you testing for hepatitis B and C.

I hope it helps you.

Thank you doctor,

Is this life-threatening? Will it cause liver cirrhosis? I am very tense since I read the reports. Please give an answer to my doubts.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

This is not life-threatening at your stage. It can progress to liver cirrhosis if it worsens.

Do not worry. Do as I suggested. You will be fine.
