A dangerous and potentially fatal disorder called FATTY liver disease "frequently" has no symptoms. Or the symptoms could not become apparent until years after the person has had the illness. But it's crucial to get medical attention as soon as you can if you see any of the warning signals.
It also refers to a variety of liver disorders that are not brought on by alcohol and is sometimes referred to as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The primary cause of fatty liver disease is having an excessive amount of fat accumulated in the liver. And if it is not treated early on, it can worsen until it results in cirrhosis (liver scarring) and then liver failure.
The British Liver Trust states that the color of your poop may be a sign of the illness.
One symptom is "dark black tarry poo," specifically.
If someone notices this while going to the bathroom, it advises them to "inform a doctor right soon."
It continues, "Even if you don't have any symptoms, if you're anxious and at risk, ask your doctor for a test."

Other indications of fatty liver include:
a state of being generally lethargic or worn out
Your stomach hurts on the upper right side.
eyes and skin that are yellow (jaundice)
swelling around the stomach (ascites)
spitting up blood.
times of uncertainty, forgetfulness, mood swings, or poor judgment
In the UK, about one in five persons have fatty liver disease.
According to the trust, rates are growing along with obesity rates.
Although being overweight is a risk factor in the majority of cases of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, anybody can have the condition.
You're more likely to get fatty liver disease if you have the following factors:
a size that falls within the overweight or obese category
Having a large waist size
diabetes type 2
an excessively unhealthy food and beverage intake
low amounts of exercise or prolonged periods of inactivity
high levels of blood lipids like cholesterol
elevated blood pressure
disorientation, forgetfulness, mood swings, or poor judgment at times
Skin that itches.
In the UK, fatty liver disease affects about one in five persons.
According to the trust, "Rates are growing along with rising levels of obesity.
Despite the fact that obesity is the cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in the majority of instances, healthy weight is not a need for disease development.
Your chance of developing fatty liver disease is increased by the following factors:
an overweight or obese condition
an extended waist measurement
disease type 2
a diet high in harmful foods and beverages
spending a lot of time sitting down or engaging in little physical activity
elevated blood lipids, including cholesterol
excessive blood pressure
With exercise and a balanced diet, the illness can be slowed or even reversed in its early stages.
The liver's structure is altered by so much scarring in stage four fatty liver disease, commonly known as cirrhosis.
Liver failure and liver cancer may develop from this.
