Description: Wherever possible, this comprehensive overview and detailed look into nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) uses the latest evidence and scientific understanding of disease mechanisms.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinical guidance for the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with this disease. This book is needed, as the incidence of NAFLD has risen significantly over the past few decades.

Features: This book provides a clear overview of the causative mechanisms of NAFLD. The pathophysiology is put into further context with several chapters that analyze NAFLD in relation to obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, and liver cancer. In offering clinical guidance, the book addresses both the difficulties and realities of diagnosis and treatment. Finally, it covers the latest national and international guidelines, discusses the latest in clinical drug trials, and, in several chapters, explores the disease nationally and internationally. Throughout the book, key points are summarized and multiple-choice questions at the end of every chapter aid in self-assessment.
