Abstract

Fatty liver disease has become increasingly prevalent and affects one in three persons globally. We investigated fatty liver disease in the general population focusing firstly on the renaming and redefining of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease into metabolic dysfunction-associated fatty liver disease. Secondly, we focussed on potential issues and considerations in population-based screening for advanced liver disease. Finally, we aimed to identify potential improvements in fatty liver disease management and prevention.
