If you are overweight, there is a high chance that you could end up with a serious form of liver disease.

A study of 3,000 overweight people from UK Biobank showed that 12% had inflamed and fatty livers.

The British Liver Trust treats the findings as a "Wake-up call" because being overweight could lead to cirrhosis, liver failure and death.

Unfortunately most symptoms aren't noticeable until it's too late.
