(LM-09) Fatty liver (hepatic steatosis) occurs in some conditions as obesity, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus and chronic ethanol ingestion, in which there is an imbalance between hepatic triacylglycerol synthesis and the secretion of the lipoproteins that transfer hepatic triacylglycerols and other lipids to peripheral tissues.
