WEBINAR - Fatty Liver NAFLD revisited - 16th September 2020
Fatty liver disease has been increasing year on year, paralleling the increase in waist circumference and BMI in all Western countries, if not the world. It is most often a silent process which can also lead to serious liver conditions such as cirrhosis.
As NAFLD and NASH are both considered “silent” liver disease, they are not something that will present with symptoms easily observed by a GP without screening. As current GP recommended screening examinations with increasing age do not necessarily include liver function tests, these tests may not be performed without patient request. Even if liver function tests are assessed with a metabolic panel, many physicians pass off mild elevations in alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) as “normal” without further testing, particularly in individuals who are overweight or obese. From the Dr’s perspective, the only recommendations they can make that may impact liver enzymes other than alcohol abstinence is weight loss, along with the proper medical management of blood sugar and cholesterol. However, NTs can encourage their clients to engage in a meaningful nutritional strategy that can and has been shown to reverse fatty liver.
