After you clear your hep C, it’s a good idea to keep your body weight healthy by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. This is because too many Australians are overweight and being overweight is a risk factor for fatty liver disease.

When your body builds up excess fat in your liver, you have fatty liver disease. There are no particular symptoms but it can lead to long term health problems. It can eventually lead to cirrhosis and possible liver cancer.

For more information about fatty liver disease, speak to your doctor or phone the Hepatitis Infoline.
