What are the symptoms of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)?

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
