A healthy liver should contain little or no fat, though the NHS estimates up to one in every three people in the UK has early stages of NAFLD, where there are small amounts of fat in their liver.

There are not usually any symptoms of NAFLD in the early stages, so the NHS says you probably will not know you have it unless it’s diagnosed during tests carried out for another reason.

Nonetheless, the health body says that occasionally, people with NASH or fibrosis (more advanced stages of NAFLD) may experience a dull or aching pain in the top right of the tummy, extreme tiredness, unexplained weight loss or weakness.

The NHS adds that if the the most advanced stage develops, you can get more severe symptoms, “such as yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes (jaundice), itchy skin, and swelling in the legs, ankles, feet or tummy (oedema).”
