Is nonalcoholic steatohepatitis terminal? Is cirrhosis inevitable?

In brief: Not terminal

Nonalcoholic fatty liver is not terminal but in time can develop into cirrhosis and can morph into very serious liver disease.
It's important to avoid any potential liver toxins including alcohol and to adhere to low fat diet. In recent years it is taken much more seriously and should be followed by a hepatologist or gastroenterologist.
