The liver is the largest internal organ of the body, located on the upper-right side of the abdomen. It filters any harmful substance in the blood, as well as processes the food nutrients that are later carried on to other parts of the body. Having some fatty deposits in the liver is normal. However, when the buildup is more than five to ten percent of the total weight of the liver, a person is said to have a fatty liver disease or steatosis. If this condition is not properly treated, it can lead to serious health concerns.
