Fat is a product that is obtained from the body's own production or through food consumed. Fat in body organs is different from fat in blood vessels.
Fat in blood vessels consists of various components. Fat in blood vessels that can often be measured by blood tests, such as total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides. These fats are in the blood circulation, and blood fat levels that are too high can cause various diseases such as heart and blood vessel disease, and stroke.
While fat in the body's organs is most often found in the liver or commonly referred to as fatty liver. Fatty liver (fatty liver) is a condition where there is accumulation of fat in the liver. The liver is an organ that functions to store and metabolize blood fats, so that if excess blood fat levels are stored in the liver and can cause fatty liver.
