Do you know? Obesity, particularly, abdominal or central obesity, is a major risk factor for developing fatty liver disease. Excessive fat accumulating in the liver may eventually lead to inflammation and scarring in the liver. Hence, it is important to maintain a healthy weight by practicing balanced diet and exercise regularly. Also, do aim for the ideal body mass index (BMI) that is between 18.5 and 22.9. [BMI= weight (kg) / height (m2)]
