In recent decades, cases of NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) are increasing. The problem has been seen across age groups and the condition has been rising alarmingly. The abnormal deposit of fats on liver is referred as fatty liver. Excess accumulation of fat in your liver could cause symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea etc.

Habits that can cause fatty liver are:

Food habits: Our diet has changed from grains, dals, and vegetables to burgers, sandwiches, etc. We often eat not because we are hungry, but as we love to eat.

Sedentary lifestyle: Our lack of physical activities have changed drastically. We no longer walk or cycle to reach a destination, our cars, bikes and buses take care of that. Children used to play in the grounds shifted to their mobile phones or consoles.

Junk food: We are consuming food more than we need. As a result, fat, which is a form of stored energy, keeps piling up in our tissues, and liver being the kitchen in our bodies and stores the most. It also gets deposited in other tissues.
