'Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NFLD is the burden in population present in about 10 to 35% of the population.'

  • " Non - alcoholic fatty liver disease affects 10 - 35% of the Indian population "


'In people who are obese or have diabetes, it can be up to almost 72 to 80% and this high prevalence may lead to increased risk of type II diabetes’


'If you find a person who is obese but does not have any metabolic problems, one should not ignore such a person and he should be advised to follow healthy life style and should aim for weight reduction.'

  • " NFLD can lead to increase in the risk of type - II diabetes "


'If the person does not follow adequate life style, then over a period of time this person is likely to develop the cardiovascular problems.'


'Any person who is obese though metallically healthy should be investigated again, possibly after 2 years, to check if there is any development of metabolic problems.'

  • " Non - alcoholic fatty liver patient is more prone to heart & metabolic diseases rather than liver diseases "
