    Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is liver inflammation caused by a buildup of fat in the liver. NASH is part of a group of liver diseases, known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, in which fat builds up in the liver and sometimes causes liver damage that gets worse over time (progressive liver damage).

    Although the cause is not known, NASH seems to be related to certain other conditions, including obesity, high cholesterol and triglycerides, and diabetes. Treatment for NASH involves controlling those underlying diseases.

    Source(s): I copied the above from the net. NASH has only been given attention in the past 10 years. Obesity and diabetes are the most common causes of which I am aware. Addressing these often takes more willpower than medication.

    There are different causes of fatty liver disease...

    yet there may be more as they are researching

    the causes of this disease:

    alcohol consumption, obesity, diabetes,

    mal nutrition, certain medications (like steriods),

    complications of pregnancy, insulin resistance,

    high cholesterol or trigylcerides, hereditary

    conditions.

    Once the doctor finishes his testing, he should

    be able to tell the cause and treat you

    accordingly.

    Simple fatty liver usually doesn't cause a

    problem if the patient follows their doctors

    direction. It is when the fat causes stress

    to the liver cells that causes them to become

    damaged that it start to become a problem.

    This is because the immune system responds

    to this damage and causes more pressure

    inside the liver and more cell damage.

    This leads to inflammation in the liver then.

    All this can be reversed by following the

    doctors instructions.

    However, if this isn't treated, it can eventually

    lead to the cells of the liver dying off and

    forming scar tissue inside the liver...then it

    is a progressive disease known as cirrhosis.

    If you have gallstones, you should have this

    watched closely because the stone can

    move out into the bile ducts and block the

    bile flow from the liver, which can also back

    up into the liver can cause damage.

    Here is a link that is very good about

    gallstones:

    Here is a link about fatty liver disease:

    http://www.medicinenet.com/fatty_liver/article.htm

    You can go to either one just by clicking on the

    link.

    Since one of the causes of fatty liver is

    complications of pregnancy...I would check

    with the doctor and see if this may be

    associated with you.

    Best wishes. Hope this information is of some

    help.

    Make sure you obtain at least seven hours of sleep each night. Being tired makes for skipped workouts and further snacking.
