Core Tip Fatigue is prevalent, persistent and complex in people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)/non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Fatigue can be analyzed in terms of peripheral and central fatigue, increasing precision of evaluation while elucidating causes and improving treatment. Liver is central to the pathogenesis of fatigue, which in our view, is dependent upon energy regulation. Biosignatures for fatigue are being tested that reflect metabolic and inflammatory pathways of relevance. Non-pharmacological treatments are effective in treating fatigue in NAFLD/NASH, including weight loss, aerobic and resistance exercise. Pharmacological agents, to date, have not been shown to have a significant/reliable effect in reducing fatigue.
