Because there are a number of different progression stages, NAFLD can present a number of different symptoms. However, NAFLD doesn’t often present any symptoms until the liver is severely damaged. If early stage symptoms of liver disease do appear, they may include: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• Abdominal pains 

 

 

 

 

• Weight loss 

 

 

 

 

• Yellowing of the eyes and skin (jaundice)

 

 

 

 

• Feeling sick

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the damage progresses, signs and symptoms can include the following: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• Vomiting blood or blood in the stool

 

 

 

 

• Swelling of the abdomen, legs and ankles

 

 

 

 

• Confusion and drowsiness

 

 

 

 

• Enlarged blood vessels just beneath the skin's surface 

 

 

 

 

• Itchy skin
