Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease - A Silent Liver Disease - Expert Q&A

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a growing condition that is believed to affect 1 in 4 adults worldwide, becoming one of the most prevalent liver diseases. The illness occurs when fat builds up in the liver and it typically triggers no warning signs or symptoms in the early stages. If left undiagnosed, NAFLD may lead to inflammation, scarring of the liver and even organ failure, which may require transplantation. While healthy individuals can develop the disease, those who are overweight, obese and have diabetes or high blood pressure are most at risk. During this live Q&A show, liver disease expert Dr. Mary Rinella and registered dietician Annie Guinane will discuss the warning signs of this disease and how diet plays a role.
