In brief: Evolving topic

Fat is bright on U/S.
Fatty liver can be seen in many conditions: obesity, diabetes, alcohol abuse, hepatitis, and other liver stress. It can be reversible and no one has ever died of it alone. The underlying cause should be sought. 20 yrs. ago fatty liver was not thought to be very signif, but now we find it is associated with many risk factors including heart and vascular disease.
