Most recent advances in the management and treatment of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) show that a multifaceted approach is likely to achieve the best outcomes. Our study evaluates the effectiveness of 6-mo multidisciplinary approach jointly carried out by a gastroenterologist and a nutritionist with counseling license. The approach was effective on the reduction of NAFLD severity, weight, anthropometric indexes, cardiovascular disease risk factors and the normalization of metabolic index, as well as liver enzymes. This study strengthens the hypothesis that MedDiet and more active lifestyle can be considered a safe therapeutic approach for reducing severity of NAFLD.

Abstract

Most recent advances in the management and treatment of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) show that a multifaceted approach is likely to achieve the best outcomes. Our study evaluates the effectiveness of 6-mo multidisciplinary approach jointly carried out by a gastroenterologist and a nutritionist with counseling license. The approach was effective on the reduction of NAFLD severity, weight, anthropometric indexes, cardiovascular disease risk factors and the normalization of metabolic index, as well as liver enzymes. This study strengthens the hypothesis that MedDiet and more active lifestyle can be considered a safe therapeutic approach for reducing severity of NAFLD.
