Fatty Liver Disease vs. Fat in Stool

Q:

I’ve been diagnosed fatty liver disease, and I noticed some white fat-like stuff in stool. Is it because of the fatty liver disease? What shall I do?

A:

The two problems are separate. Fatty liver disease doesn’t cause fat in stool. If you find fat in stool, ideally you should get evaluation from a gastroenterologist.
