Key Words Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease; Biomarkers; Fibrosis; Cirrhosis; Steatohepatitis; Liver biopsy
Core Tip Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is not a single disease, but encompasses a spectrum of diseases and this makes it very difficult to find highly specific and sensitive biomarkers. We should therefore aim to find relevant prognostic markers rather than accurate diagnostic markers which will help to minimize the frequency of liver biopsies to evaluate disease progression. There is no evidence that biopsy and detailed staging of NAFLD is important in the NAFLD management and benefits patients. Finally, there is no evidence based treatment for NAFLD other than management of 'metabolic syndrome' by pharmacological or non-pharmacological (lifestyle management/surgical) approaches.
