Fatty Liver Disease Support Group

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is fatty inflammation of the liver not due to excessive alcohol use. Most with NAFLD have no or few symptoms. Infrequently patients may complain of fatigue, malaise and dull right upper abdominal discomfort. Mild jaundice can rarely be noticed. More commonly it is diagnosed as a result of abnormal liver function tests during routine blood tests.

  • Hello - What are the enzymes tested on blood work? Is it ALT, AST, BUN and CREAT? These tests are all considered high on my 89 yr. old mother's bloodwork.
