Watch for More Patients Being Treated for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
You'll see more attention paid to the management of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Up to 100 million Americans have this abnormal buildup of fat in the liver. It often goes hand in hand with obesity, cholesterol problems, insulin resistance, and diabetes.
About 20% of patients with NAFLD have the more severe form...with liver inflammation, tissue death, and sometimes scarring.
