About the Session

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is not rare among lean individuals. But in the absence of traditional risk factors, it remains under-recognized. At this JSH-AASLD session, experts unravel the latest data on lean-NASH prevalence in the general population. Speakers will also explore the influence of genetics and environment, and the impact of metabolic abnormalities in fibrosis development in lean-NASH.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the prevalence of lean-NASH in general population
  • Review the impact of metabolic abnormalities for hepatic fibrosis in lean-NASH patients
  • Describe the association of genetic background and the liver fibrosis development in lean-NASH
