    What is a Fatty Liver?

    When I have a blood test done, the result for my liver comes back high. My Doctor told me he thought it was a fatty liver.

    Fatty liver, or steatosis, is a broad term that describes the buildup of fats in the liver. Having fat in your liver is normal, but if more than 5 to 10 percent is fat, then it is called fatty liver disease.
