The severity degrees of NASH

The fat deposited in the liver cells is mainly triglyceride and the severity of the disease is parallel to the amount of the fat in the liver. Histologically, if half of the liver cells have steatosis, or the total fat weight is greater than 5% of the weight of the liver, then steatohepatitis can be diagnosed. When 25 to 50% of the liver weight is made of fat, the disease has advanced to its most severe stage.
