It's normal to have some fat in your liver. But when there's too much it can lead to a condition known as fatty liver disease. The condition can make it difficult for your liver to remove toxins from the blood as effectively as it should. If you or someone you know has liver problems, visit a hepatologist, a doctor who specializes in the liver and can determine the best lifestyle changes to improve your liver health.
