People with mild NAFLD may not no­tice any symp­toms; some may ex­pe­ri­ence tired­ness and dis­com­fort around the liver. But as the dis­ease pro­gresses some may ex­pe­ri­ence the fol­low­ing symp­toms:

Yel­low­ness of the eyes and skin ( jaun­dice) Bruis­ing eas­ily Dark urine Swelling of the lower tummy (as­cites)

Vom­it­ing blood (hae­mateme­sis)

Dark black, tarry fae­ces (me­lena)

Pe­ri­ods of con­fu­sion or poor mem­ory (en­cephalopa­thy)

Itch­ing skin (pru­ri­tis) If you ex­pe­ri­ence any of the above it’s im­por­tant you seek ur­gent med­i­cal at­ten­tion.
