Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common liver disease in Australia. It is closely associated with obesity and is a serious health condition. It can progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), liver fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, and is a common reason for liver transplant. Consequences of NAFLD extend beyond the liver with increased risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, gall stones, kidney stones and chronic renal impairment.
In this presentation, Berris will explore the clinical implications of NAFLD and will discuss the lifestyle modifications and key herbs for the treatment and management of NAFLD patients. This information will be based on research and her clinical experience.
