Yes, that can cause you to be bloated, but also before your menstural cycle can make you bloated. If you just got through eating then that can make you bloated. There are many things that can give you the bloated feeling effect, try taking some over the counter medicine to help you.

Fatty liver indicates early reversible liver cell damage commonly attributed to increased alcohol consumption. Unlikely though to directly cause abdominal bloating,gastritis due to alcohol intake may be the cause reason.

Fatty liver can cause GI problems which cause bloating. Make sure you consult your doctor to determine the exact cause of your bloating. A change in diet can help control the bloated feeling. Watch your fat intake and try to eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains and food with high levels of protein. Weight loss and diet is important.

A fatty liver can result in being bloated. A fatty liver is a liver that does not function properly due to destruction of the liver cells, resulting in fatty non-functioning cells. The liver filters the blood and helps to remove toxins, as well as many other functions. The bloating should be discussed with your doctor.

A fatty liver can make you bloated because it interrupts one of the liver's main functions and that is to burn fat. Your metabolic rate is also reduced greatly and this can cause weight gain and bloating.

A fatty liver will not cause you to be bloated. However, poor liver function (as well as other conditions) can cause bloating.
