See hepatologist: Being overweight is the most common cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (nafld), which can be worsened by other liver diseases, including hepatitis virus. The fatigue is related to circulating inflammatory molecules from the liver disease. You should see a liver doctor, a hepatologist, to fully assess the status of your liver. Meanwhile eat healthy, avoid fatty foods, alcohol ; tylenol (acetaminophen).
