Reflections on a small world and silent liver disease. What if you had a liver disease but no one told you?Would you care?

Last year I wrote about an experience I had while out jogging. I persist in believing that the doctors know what they are talking about regarding exercise and liver disease so it is a subject that comes up from time to time. For anyone who is interested in the challenge of self-image versus father time, here is a link to that earlier item which you might relate to.

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis which is inflammation of the liver leading to scarring and liver damage

Thank you. Mine is just called fatty liver. Is that the same thing. I am not a heavy drinker.

Hi Serious

Fatty Liver is what happens before liver cells start to be damaged. That is called NAFLD, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, once scar tissue starts to form we call it NASH
