EASL non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) lay summary

EASL has recently published its first ever accessible lay summary on how to tackle non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This 20-page summary is intended for the general public, people at risk of – or already living with – NAFLD. It complements a comprehensive patient guideline already published in EASL’s open-access journal, JHEP Reports, thus providing the public with different resources to match differing health literacy levels.

General practitioners and family doctors should use the lay summary to inform their patients as it includes 14 key steps for patients to take care of their livers, accessible diagrams, and a glossary of relevant terms.
