Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is to become the major reason for liver transplantation by 2030 and is the most common cause of chronic liver diseases in western countries.
NAFLD does not only affect the liver but was shown to be a multisystem disease with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, kidney, and cardiovascular diseases. 5-20% of NAFLD patients will develop steatohepatitis (NASH) with a risk of progression to cirrhosis and HCC.
Fighting this disease is now a real emergency. EASL through its different meetings, schools, publications (Journal of Hepatology, Clinical Practice Guidelines) and online educational tools (iLiver and LiverTree) strives to participate in the battle against NAFLD and NASH.
