Core Tip Risk stratification is emerging as fundamental in the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) epidemic. Due to the strong heritability of hepatic fat content and of liver fibrosis progression, genetics is perfectly suitable to fulfill this task. However, notwithstanding the fact that different gene variants have been robustly associated with NAFLD and with its evolution, translation to the clinical ground has been poor or absent. The evidence produced suggests that combined risk scores, created by integrating different genetic and clinical information and tested with respect to relevant outcomes in longitudinal studies, may represent the way for genetics to gain strength in NAFLD diagnostics.
