Doctors call the condition steatosis, in which liver cells accumulate lipids.
This non-specific title includes steatosis, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, fibrosis and cirrhosis.

My short list would include sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, hepatic steatosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, infertility, pseudo tumor cerebri and many more.
There were no significant associations between either total caloric intake or protein intake and either steatosis, fibrosis, or inflammation.

Accordingly, microscopic examination of the liver revealed the absence of steatosis and inflammation in GFT505-treated mice.
In this context, a series of studies recently performed by GENFIT have demonstrated the efficacy of GFT505 in various pre-clinical models of NAFLD/NASH: In a recognized model of NAFLD/NASH (Methionine-Choline Deficient Diet for 6 weeks in normal or diabetic mice), microscopic examination of the liver showed that GFT505 oral treatment prevented the inflammation and accumulation of fat (steatosis) induced by the diet.
Thus, considering this unmet medical need and its increasing worldwide prevalence, a recent GlobalData analysis stated that any drug with proven efficacy on NAFLD/NASH reduction in liver steatosis, inflammation, and fibrosis which has a favorable safety profile could rapidly become a blockbuster.
The major risk factor for hepatic steatosis is excessive consumption
