When to Seek Medical Care
Since fatty liver disease is asymptomatic until liver inflammation occurs, the diagnosis is often made incidentally. The health care practitioner may note a slightly enlarged liver on physical examination, or screening blood tests may show mild abnormalities of liver function.
Patients who have abdominal swelling, jaundice, and easy bruising should seek medical care, though the cause may not necessarily be steatohepatitis or cirrhosis.
