Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease


What Is Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD/NASH)?

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, sometimes called NAFLD, is a condition in which fat builds up in the liver.

It happens more often in some people, such as those who:

  • ● Are overweight
  • ● Have diabetes, which causes blood sugar levels to get too high
  • ● Have high cholesterol
  • ●Take certain medicines

How is NAFLD treated?

NASH is not typically treated directly. But the condition can get better when other medical conditions that often happen with NASH get treated. For example, losing weight, and controlling high blood sugar and cholesterol can help improve NASH.

Making these changes has benefits besides helping with NASH. These changes can also reduce your chances of having a heart attack or stroke. That's important because people with NASH are often also at risk for heart disease and stroke.

Do I need to follow up with my doctor?

Yes. People who have NASH need to see their doctor for regular check-ups. Your doctor will do follow-up tests on a regular basis.
