In brief: Fatty liver dangers

Absolutely! It can be caused by a variety of things but each can cause cellular damage to the liver, then fibrosis, then even cirrhosis and liver failure.
Obesity, pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes are causing non alcoholic fatty liver at an alarming rate, even in young kids. Prevention, early detection and treatment are key.
