5:30 – 6:30 PM
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common chronic liver disease worldwide and is posited to overtake hepatitis C and alcohol as the most common cause of liver failure and liver transplant. NAFLD is often thought as the manifestation of the metabolic syndrome (high-blood pressure, diabetes, obesity) in the liver. To date, there are no medications to reverse NAFLD or prevent its progression to inflammation and cirrhosis, so its treatment mostly entails lifestyle changes – a combination of weight loss, exercise, and eating the right food. This discussion will explore if the timing of our meals, a rapidly evolving and often overlooked feature of today’s modern lifestyle, is also associated with NAFLD.
