Lecture Overview

While some degree of fat in the liver is normal, it only takes a small increase in the percentage of fat for disease to occur. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is becoming increasingly common. It is considered to be the most prevalent cause of liver disease in Australia. Many people with this disease have an increased risk of cirrhosis and liver-related death.
