Liver disease in general presents similarly. The cause of liver disease can become apparent through some symptoms, but it is always uncertain until further investigations are carried out. The most commonly presenting symptoms of NAFLD include:

  • Abdominal pain especially in the upper right abdomen
  • Mild fever
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Feeling of tiredness and loss of energy
  • Jaundice
  • Abdominal and leg swelling
  • Sleepiness and insomnia or both
  • Bloody vomiting or black tarry stools from the bleeding into your digestive tract
  • Easy bruising and excessive bleeding from minor injuries
