The goal of this book is to promote awareness of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) - which is rapidly replacing viral hepatitis as the leading cause of chronic liver disease in Europe, North and South America and Asia - and to share the latest information on evolving approaches to diagnosis and treatment. The book offers a comprehensive overview of the current topics of interest in the field, and provides clinical guidance on NAFLD through a multidisciplinary approach based on the latest scientific understanding of this multisystemic disease, involving the expertise of specialists including hepatologists, diabetologists, and cardiologists. The respective contributions address various aspects, including the newly released international guidelines, novel diagnostic modalities, and new experimental drugs. The work will appeal to a broad readership, from residents in internal medicine to specialists.
