7th Annual Global Fatty Liver Day, formerly known as International NASH Day, is less than 3 months away!

GFLD 2024 Save The Date Banner

Fatty liver disease is a widespread issue that often goes undetected until it’s too late. It impacts millions worldwide, which leads to missed opportunities for early intervention and prevention. Studies highlight a concerning shortcoming in identifying at-risk patients within the healthcare system who may have fatty liver disease unknowingly. We cannot afford to overlook the silent nature of this liver disease, which is why we are advocating for immediate action.

Now entering its seventh year, we are excited to announce the theme for Global Fatty Liver Day: Act Now, Screen Today! This will be a two-year theme.

Concurrent health conditions like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome elevate the risk for fatty liver disease, so  targeted screening efforts are key. By promoting screening and early detection, we raise awareness and empower individuals to prioritize their liver health, thus preventing complications like cirrhosis and liver cancer. Early identification enables timely intervention and appropriate management, which may reduce the need for liver transplants in the future.
