“Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease” or NAFLD is the #1 reason for liver transplant. Although it affects 1 in 3 adults and 1 in 10 children, most people still do not know about the disease. In this interactive session with a patient, dietician, and physician, we will introduce you to NAFLD, how NAFLD is diagnosed, the complications NAFLD can cause and the role of diet and lifestyle in this disease. Our goal is to empower individuals and parents with information, so that they can discuss NAFLD with their healthcare provider as well as start to prevent or manage the disease.
