Overview

Fatty liver occurs when too much fat builds up in liver cells. Heavy drinking, too much alcohol leads to a build-up of fat inside your liver cells, which makes it harder for the liver to work.

But you can get a fatty liver disease even if you don’t drink alcohol.

When fatty liver develops in someone who drinks a lot of alcohol, it is known as alcoholic fatty liver disease. And when it develops in the non-alcoholic form it is known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
