Fatty Liver & Liver Cirrhosis Are At Epidemic Levels!

  • 100,000,000 Americans have a fatty liver.  Most don't know it.
  • 20,000,000 will develop liver fibrosis disease or NAFLD (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease) as a result.
  • 2,000,000 million will progress to liver cirrhosis or NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatitis) and end stage liver failure.  
  • Some will be lucky enough to be listed for a transplant, the only cure for late stage liver disease, but 30% of those listed will die waiting.  Death by liver failure is long and difficult.  
  • We want to help you avoid this kind of death by helping you understand how you may be killing yourself slowly.  And, what you can do about it.
  • If you are already ill, we will do our best to help you with that process.

Our Mission

To improve the diagnosis, treatment & support of Americans with fatty liver, NAFLD or NASH through awareness, education, screening & advocacy.

We invite you to join us.



> This short video, from John's Hopkins Medicine, gives a good overview of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.  Dr. Saleh Alqahtani, director of clinical liver research and assistant professor of medicine, answers questions about the causes, symptoms and treatments.

> In this video, brought to you by THE NASH EDUCATION PROGRAM, internationally renowned opinion leaders address NAFLD (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease) and NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatits) and their challenges.

After watching this video, we encourage you to click on this link to learn more.

> This video is fairly technical, but well worth the time to watch.  Dr. Stephen Harrison, Hepatologist and international opinion leader in fatty liver disease and NASH, discusses the evolving landscape of fatty liver disease in the United States as well as diagnostic approaches to identify patients at risk for this disease.

We Advocate Early Screening

     Typically, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are silent diseases.  They have no symptoms. Even if cirrhosis has developed, there are often no symptoms until the liver has become so damaged that the only option is a liver transplant.
     There is currently a quick, easy and economical method to screen for fatty liver disease called a FibroScan.  Unfortunately, the current medical standards policy is not to screen for liver disease.  And, unless you are sick and have symptoms, insurance probably won't pay for the scan, even if you're lucky enough to have a testing system in your area.

    Way to much detailed info for a normal person to understand. I’ve never drank, ever, nor never smoked ever, either, don’t drink anything but water. Severe asthma since birth. So why does my lab work show a fatty liver? I give up!

    Hi Sally, there are certainly genetic causes of liver disease but not many have been tied to fatty liver in a way that shows fat is destiny. It can be a factor for some but lifestyle is the biggest known driver.

    “…by helping you understand how you are killing yourself slowly…” That’s kinda rude, especially considering how commonly genetics are to blame for this condition

    I had a biopsy that showed stage 3 fibrosis from NASH. I’ve been doing Ketogenic diet and intermittent Fasting over past year. Fibroscan from last week showed stage 1 to maybe early stage 2 fibrosis, also now minimal fart liver, my enzyme levels are actually drastically decreased, now Alt-11, AST- 12, change in diet seems to be the “cure”, 35 lb weight loss
