Non Alcoholic Fatty liver Diseases: An Overview

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common liver disease worldwide, affecting up to 25% of the global population. The exact cause is unknown, but it is often associated with obesity, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels. It is divided into two types: simple fatty liver and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). NASH is a more severe form of NAFLD that can lead to liver damage and cirrhosis. It is typically diagnosed through blood tests, imaging tests (such as ultrasound or MRI), and sometimes a liver biopsy. Treatment involves lifestyle changes such as losing weight, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet. In some cases, medications may be prescribed.
