2. Nausea

Nausea is a common complaint with many diseases and sometimes doesn’t have an underlying cause. This symptom may occur with fatty liver disease when the liver is inflamed. Nausea often presents for patients with advanced conditions when the liver has scarring.3‘Articles.’ Cedars, www.cedars-sinai.org/health-library/diseases-and-conditions/c/cirrhosis.html.

Also referred to as cirrhosis, the scars replace healthy tissue. The scarring can lead to blockages and leaking, causing nausea. This unpleasant response may appear with abdominal pain and vomiting.
