What an Actual Fatty Liver Looks Like

As you can see in the video below, a fatty liver is pale and larger compared to a healthy liver. I think it looks like an oversized liverwurst loaf.

Fatty liver disease occurs when fat molecules accumulate inside our liver cells, according to the Harvard Health article, “When the Liver Gets Fatty.” And, not only do these fatty liver cells lead to inflammation of your liver, they may also increase your risks of atherosclerosis, which in turn can lead to heart attacks or strokes.

You can reverse fatty liver disease in its early stages with a lifestyle change, as is mentioned in a previous post titled, “Eating Foods That Are Good for Your Liver.” With a Mediterranean type of diet along with daily physical activity, you can keep your liver healthy, which will also keep you healthy for a long time.
