NASH Symptoms

What are the symptoms of NAFLD and NASH?

Usually NAFLD and NASH do not cause symptoms. If you do have symptoms, you may feel tired or have pain in the upper right side of your abdomen, where your liver is.


Often the first sign of liver disease occurs when cirrhosis has developed typically after many years of having NAFLD. If you have NASH and severe scarring of your liver, you may have some of the following signs and symptoms of cirrhosis:

  • Intense itching
  • A swollen belly (ascites)
  • Bruising and bleeding easily
  • Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
  • Spider-like blood vessels just beneath your skin’s surface
  • Behavior changes, slurred speech, and confusion (hepatic encephalopathy)
  • If someone with NAFLD/NASH develops cirrhosis they are also at some risk of developing a common type of liver cancer called hepatocellular carcinoma.
