Information about 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
