Because of concern about stigma and the increasing knowledge about how fat in the liver leads to disease, the AASLD has officially adopted a new naming convention for our disease.
The new definition is under the umbrella term "STEATOTIC LIVER DISEASE", and what we know as NAFLD is now MASLD. NASH has been changed to MASH.
We are sponsoring a webinar for patients who want to understand the change this coming week. I encourage you to attend. This will change the way your physician talks to you about this disease. If you can't attend but would like to view it, we will distribute the recording to all registrants so go ahead and sign up.
