1 in 3 adults in the U.S. has fatty liver disease1

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the buildup of extra fat in the liver not caused by alcohol. The fat can cause inflammation and damage to the liver, which can progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and leave liver scarring. People with certain medical conditions, such as obesity or diabetes, are at the highest risk. If left undetected, it can lead to serious complications such as liver cancer. However, the liver has the unique ability to heal itself and early detection can potentially reverse liver disease before it’s too late.
