Abstract

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the leading cause of liver disease in the United States and will soon be the leading indication for liver transplantation. NAFLD can lead to cirrhosis of the liver and is usually asymptomatic. Prompt referral to a hepatologist may halt the morbidity and mortality associated with NAFLD.
