Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in Asia - More efforts are needed. Liver international : official journal of the International Association for the Study of the Liver Li, J. n., Nguyen, M. H. 2020


We read with interest the study by Zhang et al1 where they explored the association between lifestyle habits and the severity of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in different Asian regions. The authors found that unhealthy lifestyles and physical inactivity were common across all the regions and that patients with a liver stiffness <10 kPa were more likely to report participating in some vigorous activity. The focus on physical activity besides weight control is also timely as up to 40% of the NAFLD population are not obese.2.
