Hepatic steatosis is another name for fatty liver. It occurs when the liver becomes filled with fat. Small levels of fat in the liver are acceptable, but too much can be harmful to health. The liver is the body's second largest organ. It aids in the digestion of nutrients from food and beverages, as well as the removal of toxic chemicals from the bloodstream. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is becoming the primary cause of chronic liver disease in the Western world as obesity and type II diabetes mellitus become more common. Simple steatosis in some patients can progress to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, which can lead to liver cirrhosis and its complications, including hepatocellular cancer, over time.
