Non alcoholic fatty liver disease


I was recently told (16th December) that I have NAFLD. This kinda worries me a bit as I don't know much about it. This was found on a MRI scan (mrcp) for another condition. I have had a genetic blood test and a liver function etc done and as of yet not got the latest results. Hopefully the results are good news as already too ill to deal with more health issues.

So I was wondering if any of you lovely people can give me more of an insight into this condition.

Thanks in advance

Hope you have been tested for alpha one antitrypsin deficency, a liver disease, you mentioned genetic test so I assume you have been , if not get tested for it. A metabolic disease first and foremost , but most patients present with emphysema first , the root of the problem in alpha one is liver first and foremost..good luck!
