Q. Why do I have Fatty Liver?

I have just had a complete overhaul regarding my health and thankfully the only thing that came back was that I had fatty liver, now I don`t drink, never have, I`m not desperately overweight although have lost 4 stone over a period of time, and I like to think that I eat sensibly, salads, fruit, veg.. Any thoughts anyone?
A1The scholars investigate and find, eight in ten fat people have fatty liver. The main reason is that a large amount of dissociative fat acid in blood is gradually transferred to liver and this overburdens the metabolism ability of liver then leads the fat accumulated and finally the fatty liver formed. More than half the patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus associated with fatty liver. Dextrose and fat acid can’t get a good use and obstacle appears in lipoprotein synthesizing. When dextrose and fat acid change into fat in liver, this will lead fat accumulation and finally fatty liver formed.

Hope this helps.
A2Fat liver does not occur from drinking for all I know. It’s common mistaken with cirrhosis which does. The liver accumulates fat when you are overweight. For some (lucky) people the fat accumulates under the skin for the others – visceral fat, inside your internal organs. But most of the time if you are overweighted – you have visceral fat. This is not a good thing. This is the cause of the metabolic syndrome. Try exercise. Consult a endocrinologist.
A3This is really one for a Doctor, but I understand that fat deposits will lie anywhere in the body.

Fatty liver appears to being of increasing prevalence, and is being blamed on alcohol and 'binge drinking', but I sometimes wonder if environmental poisons, such as pesticide residues in vegetable, could share some of the culpability.

I'm sorry that I cannot answer in terms other than of conjecture, but, as you are a non-drinker, your question poses some further questions that need to be asked.
